On January 6, Dominic Thiem will try to win his first match ATP Cup. On this day he will play with Diego Schwartzman. Can the Austrian do this? – read in our prediction.
The Austrian team lost the match against Croatia with a score of 0: 3. Novak lost in three sets to Chilic, Tim was weaker than Choric, and the Austrian couple did not stand up against the Croatian duet. Now the Austrians have weak chances of reaching the playoffs, given the result of the first round, but we have no doubt that Tim will play the upcoming meeting at the level necessary for victory, because Schwartzman is a principled opponent for Tim. Both the Austrian and the Argentinean are primarily known for their victories on the ground. Dominica is generally called the “ground prince”, but the upcoming game will be on hard.
Schwartzman until the last was generally considered only a ground tennis player, but sometimes the Argentinean shows good results on hard. In 2019, Diego won Lob Kabos, so the blue coating is slowly becoming “mine” for Schwartzman. True, this thesis is more about open courts; Diego didn’t have any trophies in the industries. In the first round of the ATP Cup, Schwartzman had a chance to defeat the Pole Gurkach, even won the first set, but in the end lost to Hubert 1:2.
Statistics and personal meetings
- In full-time meetings, the score is 5-2 in Thiem’s favor.
- In 5 of the last 7 full-time confrontations, at least 23 games were played.
Dominic Thiem vs Diego Schwartzman Prediction
In Vienna, Thiem lost to Schwartzman in the first set, but won the two remaining games and, in general, was stronger than the Argentinean. Now Thiem is again the favorite of the pair, but not as big as in the home hard competition. We believe that Dominic has no less chances to beat the Argentinean on Monday than at the end of October. We put on the confident victory of the fourth racket of the world.
