Frances Tiafoe vs Diego Schwartzman: Preview
Diego Schwartzman hasn’t had a very successful season this time around. He struggled to get past Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals at the French Open. Post that, he struggled at Wimbledon, as well as at the Canadian Open. However, he has started off well at the Cincinnati Open.
Schwartzman defeated Dan Evans in the first round in a hard-fought encounter. Evans won the second set but failed to impress in the deciding set. Schwartzman would be desperate for a title win before going into the US Open. On the other hand, Tiafoe has had a great start to his campaign at Cincinnati.
He defeated Ugo Humbert in straight sets in his previous game. Although Tiafoe was stretched to tie-breakers in both the sets, he kept his cool under pressure and eventually emerged victoriously. However, now Tiafoe has a monumental challenge ahead of him in the name of Diego Schwartzman.

Frances Tiafoe vs Diego Schwartzman: Prediction

Prediction: Diego Schwartzman to win in 3 sets.
