The year of Diego Schwartzman

Diego Schwartzman (14th) is experiencing one of its best tournaments so far in 2021. In the ATP 250 from Antwerp, Peque has already reached the semifinals and is looking for his second title of the year. But How was the Argentine season so far?

During the first months of 2021, the Peque had turbulent moments. While a title was awarded (Argentina Open against Francisco Cerúndolo), in the rest of the tournaments he was eliminated early.

At that time of year, he was in the Top 10 of the world rankings but did not fall surprisingly to Aslan Karatsev in the third round of the Australian Open. (Russian was 127 °), on his ATP 500 debut in Acapulco against Lorenzo Musetti (120 ° at the time) and in the eighth of the Miami Masters 1000 against Sebastian Korda (87th in that tournament). He also chained three consecutive competitions, being eliminated in his first match: Masters 1000 in Madrid, Rome and the ATP 250 in Lyon.. Again Karatsev (this time as Top 30), Félix Auger-Aliassime (as 21st) and Richard Gasquet (as Top 60) were his executioners.

After that bad streak, Roland Garros arrived. Although he could not return to the semifinals as he had done in 2020, he did reach the quarterfinals, a round in which Rafael Nadal put a brake on him. In the month of August, at the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati, he again beat a Top 30 (Daniel Evans), something that had not happened since the ATP 250 in Cologne II in October 2020 against Auger-Aliassime.

For the US Open, although he only reached the round of 16 and lost to the surprise of the competition, Botic van de Zandschulp, Peque began to show his great tennis again and he began to see it much better on the court. For the Indian Wells Masters 1000, he had the pleasure of beating two Top 30 in a row: Evans and Ruud (Top 10) being a quarter-finalist of the contest.

Now in AntwerpThanks to those triumphs and defeats, the Argentine seems to have found his way at the end of 2021 and dreams of his second ATP title and, why not, get fully into the fight for the ATP Finals.
