Diego Schwartzman, current tennis number one in South America and the top favorite for the title at the Argentina Open, makes his presentation this Thursday (not before 8 pm) against the Slovakian Lukas Klein in the outgoing match of the round of 16 programming.
Schwartzman (9), finalist in Buenos Aires in the edition 2019 and a
semifinalist last year, collides against Klein (291), a player emerged from qualifying, in the party that closed the day on center court of the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club and with televising of the TyC Sports signal.
Losing in the quarterfinals in Córdoba hurt me
, but it was something that could happen, since I never felt comfortable on the court. My wish is that it doesn't happen to me here in Buenos Aires, I want to reach the final stages," he analyzed the
Schwartzman, 28, at a press conference that offered via Zoom.
Schwartzman, ninth in the ATP world ranking, had been a finalist in Córdoba in the 2020 edition (he lost to Chilean Cristian Garín), but last week he played below his level and fell to Catalan Albert Ramos (46) 6-1, 4-6 and 6-3 in a game in which he made an unusual number of unforced errors.
