Novak Djokovic vs Diego Schwartzman: Preview
Novak Djokovic continues to increase the odds in his favour of making a successful title defence as he reaches the fourth round of the French Open. Up against Aljaz Bedene in the third round, Novak won the match 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 to enter the 4th round in Roland Garros for the 16th time in his 18th appearance. With no sets dropped yet, the Serbian is in red-hot form having played just one tiebreaker which he forced after almost losing the set.
Diego Schwartzman reaches the fourth round of the French Open for the fourth time in his 9th main-draw appearance. The Argentine has battled hard to make it to the Round of 16 with a 4-set win in the first round, a fantastic comeback from being 0-2 sets down in the second round and then defeated Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 in the third round to pick up his 25th win in Paris.
Novak Djokovic vs Diego Schwartzman: Head-to-Head
This will be the seventh meeting between the duo, their fourth on claycourts and second in the French Open. They had met in the third round of the 2017 French Open and played out a thrilling 5-setter which was won by Djokovic like all other matches as the Serb leads the Argentine 6-0 in head-to-head.
Novak Djokovic vs Diego Schwartzman: Prediction
Diego will come into the tie with a career claycourt record of 370-175 and is 20-7 on the surface this season while having a season record of 24-11 across all surfaces. Djokovic will take the court with a career claycourt record of 186-36 and is 13-3 on the surface this season while having a 15-4 season record so far.
Looking at these numbers and considering their form in the 2022 season, it will be a tough test for Novak given Diego’s best performances often come on Clay. While Novak is in great form himself, Diego has played out all possible scenarios in his three matches and won’t crush under pressure making it difficult for Novak to cruise past him easily.
Prediction: Novak Djokovic to win in 4-sets.
