Diego Schwartzman v Taylor Fritz Head to Head
The pair have played each twice before, with each man having won a match apiece. Schwartzman won at the European Open in Antwerp in 2016 in straight sets, but Fritz reversed that score line in Monte Carlo earlier this year.
Schwartzman, Clay Court Specialist Finding Some Form Again
Schwartzman, the world number 27, is best known as a clay court specialist, and has won both his career titles on that surface. That is not to downplay his ability on hard courts – he was the beaten finalist two years in succession at the European Open event in Belgium.
He began the year by reaching the final of the Argentina Open in front of his home fans, but was then thrashed in the final by Marco Cecchinato of Italy. Since then his singles results have been somewhat indifferent, apart from a run to the quarter-finals at Queen’s.
In Mexico this week, he was given a bye in the first round, and then comfortably defeated Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis in the second round, and then the number eight seed Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan in the quarter-finals. There was nothing straightforward about his semi-final with compatriot Guido Pella, however, with the pair trading sets before Schwartzman found another gear in the third to run away with the match.
Preparing for his second final of the year, Schwartzman will be hoping to put on a better show than he did against
Taylor, A Man on The Rise
21-year-old Fritz has had a fine year so far, with a string of results that have propelled him into the top thirty in the world, and allowed him to overtake Frances Tiafoe as the second highest ranked American player behind John Isner.
He began his year by securing his 4th Challenger Tour title at Newport Beach, and by reaching the third round in Melbourne and Monte Carlo. Then he went to Eastbourne in June, and emerged from the tournament with his first senior ATP title. Last week he reached his second final at the Atlanta Open, only to lose to Alex de Minaur of Australia.
Now he finds himself in yet another final. He began his week with a comfortable win over German Dominik Koepfer in the first round, before coming from a set down to defeat India’s Prajnesh Gunneswaran in the second. From their his confidence blossomed, and he beat the number one seed, Fabio Fognini of Italy in the quarter-finals, before crushing Radu Albot of Moldova in the semi-finals for the loss of just five games.
Schwartzman v Fritz Predictions & Tips
Fritz is the odds-on favourite to win this match, despite being the lower ranked and seeded player. Heis priced at 9/13, whilst Schwartzman is 7/5. The American is in this third final in less than two months, and is one of the form men on tour. Schwartzman will be glad to have got this far again, but his opponent looks to have all the weapons to claim another career title and to continue his rise up the world rankings.
