Diego Schwartzman

Schwartzman served at around 78% accuracy in the semi final match against Kecmanović, which is necessarily because he doesn’t have a powerful serve. Schwartzman though is one of the best returners of the modern game and Cerundolo has to be aware of that.

Cerundolo has nothing to lose, and will come out firing on both backhand and forehand. Schwartzman, the local boy, is the favourite for this one.

Match Prediction: Diego Schwartzman will beat Francisco Cerundolo in two sets.
