Mackenzie McDonald vs Diego Schwartzman – Match Predictions

As Mackenzie McDonald sets his sights on his first victory over Diego Schwartzman, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Diego Schwartzman to Win at Least One Set

Although Mackenzie McDonald is the favourite to win this match, his recent form doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. The American player suffered three losses in his last four singles matches. To be fair, Diego Schwartzman has also had his fair share of struggles lately; as he has as many wins as he has losses in his last eight matches. However, the Argentine has held his own against Mackenzie McDonald in the past. As a matter of fact, Schwartzman has two wins in as many encounters between these players, and he won both meetings in straight sets. That said, we are fairly confident that the 30 year old will not go down in straight sets.

Two Total Sets

We’ve already established that the previous skirmishes between these players ended in minimum sets. That said, it’s also important to note that both players have been involved in a lot of two-setters lately. On one hand, seven of Mackenzie McDonald’s last nine singles matches ended in two sets. Likewise, all of Diego Schwartzman’s last six matches ended in minimum sets. All things considered, we believe that one of these players will fail to take a set.

How have these players fared in recent weeks? Now that we’ve sorted out our Mackenzie McDonald vs Diego Schwartzman predictions, let’s take a look at both players’ recent results.

Mackenzie McDonald

Mackenzie McDonald participated in the Newport Open a couple of weeks ago, where he crashed out in the second round. The American has struggled to find his stride recently, losing three of his last four matches. Interestingly, Mackenzie McDonald is currently 0 for 2 against today’s opponent; it’ll be interesting to see how he matches up against the Argentine player.

Diego Schwartzman

On the other hand, Diego Schwartzman has not been very consistent in recent weeks; as he has four wins and four losses in his last eight matches. The 30 year old will hope to keep his 100 percent record against Mackenzie McDonald intact as he takes on the American.

Mackenzie McDonald vs Diego Schwartzman Head to Head

This will be the third encounter between Mackenzie McDonald and Diego Schwartzman. These players first met at the Barcelona Open last year, and Diego Schwartzman won that match in straight sets.

This will be the first clash between these players on hard court.
