Diego Schwartzman (15th) will raise the curtain on the central court of the Indian Wells Masters 1000 this Monday against Daniel Evans (22nd). If he wins, he will qualify for the round of 16 in the California desert for the first time in his career and you can see it through ESPN on Star + starting at 15 in Argentina.
After saving two match points against local Maxime Cressy in his debut, El Peque will have a challenge of height: Evans, whom he recently faced at the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati. At that time, the Argentine won 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 in a game with many variations, so this in Indian Wells promises a lot.
In 2019 Schwartzman reached the third round of the Californian event and fell, in that instance, to Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-1 and the Spanish denied him the possibility of getting his place among the 16 best. Now, as a favorite, he will try to overcome his best performance against Evans, of great 2021.
