The Argentine has been in the Top 20 for the past three years. Now 27-year-old Schwartzman holds the title of the 14th racket in the world. In the 2019 season, Diego won the prestigious tournament in Los Cabos (hard, prize money: $ 762,455). Schwarzman spends most of his playing time on the clay. In total, Diego won 376 battles on ground courts and lost 192 (66% of victories).
Schwartzman was supposed to win the tournament in Cordoba. At least everyone was expecting it. But in a crucial match, the Argentine failed to beat Cristian Garin. Despite the first set won, it was not possible to celebrate Diego’s victory (6-2, 4-6, 0-6).
In Buenos Aires, an Argentine is trying to make up for it. So far this is working for him. However, his rivals were strong enough, so he beated them in three sets. Schwartzman first handled Federico Delbonis (6-3, 4-6, 6-2), and then forced the cover of Pablo Cuevas (5-7, 7-6, 7-5).
The 31-year-old Portuguese is on the 68th row in the ATP table. Prize Sauces are $ 516,568. During his professional career, Pedro managed to take part in 754 battles, and in 472 of them he gained the upper hand over his opponents. Profile cover for the representative of Portugal is grass court.
At this year’s Buenos Aires tournament, Sousa acts as a lucky loser. So far, Souza is confidently moving the tournament grid. Some problems he had in the first round, where he had to play three sets in opposition to Diaz Acosta (4-6, 6-2, 6-3). But in the next two matches, Pedro confidently passed Josef Kovalik (7-6, 7-6) and Thiago Monteiro (7-6, 6-4).
Sousa was never considered an outstanding player. Throughout his career, Pedro has performed on various Challengers. He reached his best position in the ATP ranking just over the last winst on this tournament. The competition in Buenos Aires can be a tournament of his entire life, as the Portuguese is one step away from reaching the final.

Schwartzman’s win quotes are rising at all bookmakers. I do not represent what it is connected with. Pedro Sousa had to quit a long time ago, but it seems as if his opponents are simply presenting him with the wins. This was evident from the game against Kovalik and Monteiro. Well, Schwartzman himself will not allow this. Most likely, Diego will win over the sensational Pedro. Sousa has nothing to oppose to an Argentinian tennis player.
Our prediction is the victory of Diego Schwartzman.
