Diego Schwartzman (15th in the world ranking) will face Casper Ruud (10th) with the aim of continuing to increase his illusion in Indian Wells and you can follow him through ESPN on Star +.
The best South American in the world will play the round of 16 for the first time in the California desert: his best performance had been the third round in 2019, when he was eliminated by Rafael Nadal.
It should be remembered that the best Argentine mark in Masters 1000 tournaments was in Rome 2020, where he beat Nadal in the quarterfinals and then fell in the title definition with Novak Djokovic.
“Now he is one of the best in the world, he won four of the last five tournaments he played, so it is very difficult to play against an opponent who has a lot of confidence, “Schwartzman said of his next opponent.
The Argentine leads the record 4-2, but the Norwegian took the last two games, both in 2021 and in Masters 1000 (Cincinnati and Monte-Carlo).
