Argentine tennis superstar, Diego Schwartzman will start his tournament at the second round of the 2020 ATP Cordoba Open. Schwartzman will play against Jaume Munar from Spain.
Jaume Munar defeated Leonardo Mayer in the opening round of the tournament. It was a strong performance by Munar as he won in straight sets. During the win, Jaume Munar impressed with his serving as he won over 80% of his serving points which allowed him to win all of his service points. The receiving was also strong from Jaume Munar as he won 3 return games. Despite that performance, Jaume Munar must produce his best match if he wishes to compete against Diego Schwartzman.
Diego Schwartzman is the top seed and that resulted in the Argentine player receiving a bye in the opening round. It has been a strong start to the season for Diego Schwartzman as he made the fourth round of the Australian Open. Schwartzman was eventually defeated by Novak Djokovic but it was still a good tournament for the Argentine player. Playing on home soil, Diego Schwartzman should receive great support from the crowd and that should give the player a huge boost. Considering the location of this tournament and his recent form, Diego Schwartzman will be tough to stop.
Diego Schwartzman and Jaume Munar have played each other once in the past. The match was played in 2018 at the US Open where Diego Schwartzman won the match in 4 sets.
Jaume Munar is a very talented player and while he played well in the opening round, I see him losing this fixture. Diego Schwartzman is playing on home soil and he enters this tournament in great form. I see Jaume Munar being very competitive but at the end of the match, Diego Schwartzman should be good enough to win.
