Schwartzman advanced to eighth of ATP 500 Vienna

Diego Schwartzman, number 16 of the ATP ranking, beat the Italian this Wednesday Fabio Fognini (36th) in the first round of Austrian Open, held in the city of Vienna. The Peque stayed with the crossing by 6-2 and 7-5, on a fast surface and in an ATP 500 tournament, and bounced back from defeat in the Antwerp final last Sunday when they fell to Jannik Sinner (11th).

The first set was pure forcefulness on the part of the Buenosairean, who was left with the partial in 36 minutes, after two breaks on the service of the Italian.

Nevertheless things were not so simple for the Argentine in the second, because Fognini also brought out his tennis and his mentality. Schwartzman was with his service 5-4 up, but the nerves and the actions of the Italian put him in the game, to stretch the definition.

The Argentine did not miss the chance and again broke the Italian, and then went in search of the victory by 7-5, which came after one hour and 29 minutes of play.

Schwartzman will play this Thursday from 9 in the morning (Argentine time) with the Frenchman Gael Monfils (21º), looking for a place in the quarterfinals. In confrontations between the two they are even with two victories per side.

The Vienna Open, a trend these days before the ban on playing for the local Dominic Thiem for not being vaccinated, has as top favorites Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas (3rd), German Alexander Zverev (4th), Italian Matteo Berretini (7th). The Peque, meanwhile, is the eighth best seeded.
