Tommy Paul vs Diego Schwartzman – Match Predictions

Over 20.5 Games to Win

The clash between Paul and Schwartzman at the Canadian Masters holds the promise of a dramatic showdown between contrasting trajectories. Paul’s journey, marked by a dip in confidence during the clay swing, saw redemption on hard courts with a flawless 7-0 opening-round record in similar events this year. Meanwhile, Schwartzman’s recent resurgence, evident in his successful qualifying campaign, showcases his ability to adapt and rise to challenges. With both players possessing the skill and determination to extend rallies, the match could well see over 20.5 games played as they strive to claim victory in this intriguing encounter.

2-0 to Tommy Paul

Paul would surely step onto the Canadian Masters’ stage with a resolute aim: to dominate his first-round encounter against Schwartzman. He can achieve that in straight sets given Schwartzman’s recent woes. The Argentine has never been comfortable on the hard court swing of the tour and has struggled in the current campaign with five straight-set defeats in nine matches. Interestingly, all of these matches did not require a deciding set. With Paul being the bookmakers’ favourite, we believe his hard-court prowess positions him well to secure a comprehensive victory in straight sets.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Canadian Open.

Tommy Paul

The American ace will not have many complaints for his 2023 campaign. His 31-18 record has seen him make the final of Acapulco, Aix En Provence Challenger, and Eastbourne International, all on different courts. While he has struggled to get past the final hurdle, Paul has showcased his instincts with long stretches in competitive outings and can pose problems to those who he comes across. His support will increase in this stretch of the campaign and will be interesting if he can rise to the challenge.

Diego Schwartzman

With the  British grass court swing behind him, Schwartzman turned his attention to hard court adventures in North America. His first foray in Washington did not according to plan, suffering a straight-sets defeat to Mckenzie McDonald. He turned it around in Toronto, making little work of Draxl and Vukic in the qualifiers. He would like to finish the campaign on a high after accumulating an 11-20 record in the 2023 campaign.
