Style and personality:
What Diego Schwartzman lacks in height, he more than makes up for in tenacity and consistency. A supreme mover, Schwartzman – or Peque, as he’s known on Tour – is much more than a baseliner, as shown in numerous battles with the game’s best players in recent years. Dwarfed, metaphorically and literally by his compatriot, Juan Martin del Potro, Schwartzman is one of the toughest players to beat on Tour, especially on clay, while he’s a big favourite with the crowds, who love his attitude. Named after the great footballer, Diego Maradona.
Schwartzman’s tennis idol as a child was Rafael Nadal, so it is perhaps fitting that the best win of his career came over his hero, when he beat the Spaniard in the semi-finals of the Rome Masters in 2020. That was the year he made the semi-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time, too, beating two-time runner-up Dominic Thiem before losing out to Nadal. He won his first title back in 2016, in Istanbul and later triumphed in Rio de Janeiro and Los Cabos, before winning his fourth and most recent title on home soil in Buenos Aires in 2021, one of the proudest moments of his career.
