In the first three rounds, Diego Schwartzman was not the most formidable opponents. Managed without given sets, the Argentine tennis player to pass the Haas, Gerasimov and Sandgren.
Only in 1/8 final Shvartsman was the rival of the top 10. However, the current form and the game of Alexander Zverev is clearly far from optimal. Schwarzman taken full advantage of this (3-6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-3). Will also easy in the game against Nadal? Unlikely. Against opponents that do not have a huge serve, Rafa feels confident.
