Argentinian Diego Schwartzman is still unable to unlock the next level


This Sunday, the porteño number 38 in the world ranking was eliminated from the 1,000 Masters in Miami with a logical defeat against the Danish Holger Rune (8th) and could not break that curse of winning two consecutive games: he has not achieved it since the last US Open.

On a hard surface, Rune overcame him with partials of 6-4 and 6-2 to eliminate the good feelings he had felt last Friday, when he had beaten the Chinese Yibing Wu (64th) 7-6 (1) in the second round. and 6-1.

Schwartzman, in three months of competition in 2023, has a record of just three wins and nine losses.

Given some results, he could even break out of the Top 40 at the end of this contest (it's been almost 6 years since he was last outside that range).

The Argentine knows that he has to turn the page quickly, refocus on his tennis and try to defend as many points as possible in the European tour on brick dust, where he had a good performance last season and will force him to be fine.

Rune, for his part, reached the round of 16 of the M1000 in Miami for the first time, where he will meet the American

Taylor Fritz

(10th), who beat the Canadian Denis Shapovalov (30th).
