Diego Schwartzman to Take a Set

Although Casper Ruud is the overwhelming favourite here, his recent form doesn’t inspire much confidence. The Norwegian player has played seven singles matches in all competitions this year, and he has lost four of them. Furthermore, Ruud has lost five of eight previous meetings with Diego Schwartzman. To be fair, Diego Schwartzman has also struggled to find his form lately. However, he should be able to take a set in this match.

More Than 20 Total Games

We’ve pointed out that these players have struggled so far this year. Casper Ruud surrendered at least one set in all of his last six singles matches, while Schwartzman did the same in 14 of his last 15 singles matches in all competitions. Bearing that in mind, we don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest. This match will likely go all the way to three sets, and it should go over 20.5 games.

Now that we’ve sorted out our predictions for this match, we’ll do well to peer into both players’ recent form.

Diego Schwartzman

Diego Schwartzman looked really good in his first round match against Federico Coria. He defeated his compatriot in straight sets, breaking him six times. This will be a tricky fixture for the Argentine, as he faces a player who has beaten him in three of their last four encounters. Can he secure a third round spot ahead of his Norwegian opponent?

Casper Ruud

Like Schwartzman, Casper Ruud has struggled to find his footing this season. In seven singles matches this year, the former World number 2 has three wins and four losses. Ruud will set his sights on a place in the third round as he takes on Diego Schwartzman. It’ll be interesting to see how he matches up against his Argentine opponent.

Diego Schwartzman vs Casper Ruud Head to Head

This will be the ninth encounter between these players. Diego Schwartzman currently leads the head-to-head with five wins and three losses. To be fair, Ruud has three wins in the last four skirmishes between these players.
