Jenson Brooksby v Diego Schwartzman Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before This will be the first match between the 20 year old American, and the Argentine, who in nine years older.
Brooksby Books His Place in Milan
In reaching the semi-finals in Antwerp Brooksby has just booked his place in the NextGen ATP Finals in Milan next month, a fitting reward for making a rare trip away from American shores.
And he did it the hard way, having come through two rounds of qualifying first.
First he defeated his big serving compatriot Reilly Opelka, and then the surprise US Open quarter-finalist Botic Van de Zandschulp to earn himself a last eight tie with the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina, the world number 44.
The American began well, securing an early break, but he could not hold on to it and the Spaniard was able to level.
Davidovich Fokina saved a set point, but, in his next service game, was broken again and Brooksby claimed the first set.
It was Brooksby’s turn to save break points in the opening game of the second set but having done so, he underpinned his advantage with another break. The Spaniard’s resistance was broken and he did not win another game in the match.
Schwartzman Eyeing Second Final of 2021
Schwartzman is now one match away from his second final of 2021, having won the Argentina Open on home soil in March.
Known for being one of the shortest players on tour, he made his name as a clay court specialist, but has since developed into an all-court player.
The Argentine has bounced back strongly from Indian Wells, where he got to the quarter-finals only to be trounced by the eventual winner Cameron Norrie.
He got revenge of sorts by beating another British tennis player, Andy Murray in straight sets in his first match in Belgium, recovering after trailing 4 – 1 in the second set.
And he faced another NextGen finals aspirant in the form of another American, Brandon Nakashima on Friday.
Although the first set went with serve until the ninth game, the Nakashima serve was constantly under pressure, and he eventually cracked and was broken, enabling Schwartzman to serve out for the set.
And then the American dropped his serve again at the start of the second set. From there the writing was on the wall for Nakashima and another break put Schwartzman in complete control of the match, which he sealed with his third match point.
Brooksby v Schwartzman Prediction and Tip
The young American is tipped to win by the bookmakers because they believe that the surface suits his game more than that of the far more experienced Argentine.
