◼️ The Argentine was quick with a two-set disadvantage against Kevin Anderson, but he fought to achieve a celebrated victory. For the semifinals pass he will run into Rafael Nadal.
Diego Schwartzman got a sensational comeback on Monday to advance to the quarterfinals of Roland Garros. The Argentine started down with a strong score (1-6 and 2-6) in favor of Kevin Anderson, but he remained patient and struggled to realize his purpose: 7-5, 7-6 (7-0) and 6-2 in the following game to leave on the knees his rival of 2.03 meters in height, about 40 centimeters higher than Diego.
The No. 12 in the world ranking continues its huge rise and did so with a heroic triumph. Because he had to tolerate 19 aces from the African (7th), he was at a disadvantage in terms of winners (3 against 69), although he exhibited greater regularity from the unforced errors: 37 against 93.
In the total points of the match, the Argentine of 25 years won by just four (162 to 158) and ended up overcoming his opponent in patience and despite the length of the match, which lasted 3h51m.
In the next round, by the semifinals, Schwartzman will be seen with Rafael Nadal, the world’s No. 1 and 10 times champion on the Parisian brick dust, who defeated 6-3, 6-2 and 7-6 ( 7-4) to the surprise of the contest, the German Maximilian Marterer (70º).
