Both players prefer to play on clay but this week in Shanghai proves that they are also good on hard surface.
Nicolas Jarry 2-0 @ 6/5 (2.20)
Jarry is on the verge of getting among the top 20 players in the world for the first time in his career. He has been very solid this week in Shanghai and will try to beat Schwartzman for the second time this year. The Argentinian has seen his career fading down in the last couple of seasons, but he is coming off an impressive win over world No.8, Taylor Fritz. Jarry and Schwartzman have totally different playing styles as the Chilean is one of the tallest and Schwartzman one of the shortest players on the tour. The key point is that Jarry is playing the best tennis of his career and that will be enough to get past Schwartzman in straight sets.

He is coming off a 7-6, 6-2 win over Lorenzo Sonego in the previous round and he started with a 7-5, 6-2 win over Terence Altmane in the first match.

In the previous rounds, he defeated Taylor Fritz, Jiri Lehecka and Luca Van Assche, all in three sets.
Schwartzman’s best result this season was the third round at the French Open.
