Diego Schwartzman vs Marton Fucsovics: Preview
Ninth-seeded Diego Schwartzman has been incredible in Wimbledon 2021 till now. He thrashed Benoît Paire in his first-round encounter in straight sets. Such was Schwartzman’s domination that he even bageled Paire in the second set and finished the match in super quick time.
He continued his form against Liam Broady in the second set. Although Broady won the first set, Schwartzman made a terrific comeback and won the next three sets without much hassle. Before coming into Wimbledon, the Argentinian wasn’t going through the best of times on the court.
He was knocked out in the first rounds of the Italian and Lyon Open. However, he gained some winning momentum at the French Open, but his journey was halted by the ‘king of clay’ Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals. On the other hand, Márton Fucsovics had to fight hard in his first-round match-up against Jannik Sinner.
Moreover, in the second-round, Marton got a walkover as Jiří Veselý withdrew mid-game. Marton would look to continue his good run of form against Schwartzman in the third-round clash as well.

Diego Schwartzman vs Marton Fucsovics: Prediction

Prediction: Diego Schwartzman to win in 4 sets.
