Tennis | Yoshihito Nishioka vs Diego Schwartzman
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Argentine tennis superstar, Diego Schwartzman has made it into the quarterfinals of the 2019 ATP Sydney International. At this stage of the tournament, Diego Schwartzman is set to play Yoshihito Nishioka from Japan.

Yoshihito Nishioka enters this match having beaten Andrey Rublev in the previous round. It was a dominant performance by Nishioka as he only allowed Rublev to win 4 games in the entire match. Yoshihito Nishioka’s receiving was exceptional during the win as he won over 55% of the return points which allowed him to win 5 break points. It has been a good tournament for Yoshihito Nishioka as he has not lost a single set. This is expected to be a much tougher match for Yoshihito Nishioka as he is playing a much more accomplished opponent.

On the other side of the court, Diego Schwartzman was also very dominant in his previous match. Schwartzman won in straight sets. During the victory, Diego Schwartzman won 5 return points while only losing 1 service game. It was a comprehensive way for Diego Schwartzman to start his season and I am expecting the Argentine to be feeling confident as he heads into this clash. Schwartzman in the number 3 seed for this tournament and he is higher ranked than Yoshihito Nishioka.

This is set to the first time that Diego Schwartzman and Yoshihito Nishioka will be playing against each other.

While Yoshihito Nishioka has had a very strong tournament, I see the Japanese player losing this match. Diego Schwartzman is a far more accomplished player and has much more experience than Yoshihito Nishioka. With Diego Schwartzman looking very solid in his previous match, it is going to be very hard for Yoshihito Nishioka to compete. I see the Diego Schwartzman winning this match and making the semifinals of the 2019 ATP Sydney International.

 

Pick:
Diego Schwartzman
