Diego Schwartzman hasn’t had the best of years so far. He’s had some success on the clay, reaching the finals of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, but not doing much else. Since coming onto the hard courts in August, he hasn’t looked at all impressive. Losing to Ramos-Vinolas at Montreal, and narrowly beating Molcan and Karatsev the week after before losing to Tsitsipas.
The Argentinian is actually lucky to still be in the competition, after going two sets down to American Jack Sock. Unfortunately Sock got injured, and lost the next set 6-0 before he retired. He beat Popyrin in straight sets, though this win doesn’t mean too much.
The American has looked great this week, beating Giron and Kubler in straight sets. He’s come into a bit of form recently, beating Nakashima, Van De Zandschulp, Bonzi and Berrettini. His losses recently have been against Brooksby, Kyrgios (where Tiafoe had match points!) and Korda. All very good opponents. Tiafoe will be very confident in getting into Round 4 against a not-so-in-form Schwartzman.
The pair have faced each other three times so far, with the Argentinian holding a 2-1 record over Tiafoe. The most recent encounter saw Tiafoe beat him for the first time in straight sets.
Frances Tiafoe is a deserved heavy favourite. His form and overall play on these hard courts are much better than Diego, and him being at his home country will also add to the value. I like both the games and sets handicap here.
