In the second match of day one of the 2022 Laver Cup on Friday, September 23, world number six Stefanos Tsitsipas will compete against Diego Schwartzman, who is rated seventeenth.
Tsitsipas wasn’t nearly a pre-tournament favourite at the US Open this year, but he was certainly predicted to advance far in the field. or at the very least survive until the second week. Instead, Stefanos Tsitsipas was eliminated by Daniel Elahi Galan in the first round, which left him with a lot of unanswered issues as the top-ranked Greek player struggles with his Grand Slam performance. The world number six had previously participated in two Davis Cup matches and had easily won both of them, but was that enough going into this match? Tsitsipas has participated in this competition twice, winning both of his singles matches. This time around, there might be a small confidence problem following the US Open departure, but the Greek player should settle in against a guy who hasn’t had a fantastic season outside on clay.
Schwartzman would have preferred to perform far better recently than he has for a guy who is now rated 17th in the world. Diego Schwartzman is actually 6-5 on win-loss from his last five events on his favourite surface, clay, which he may find difficult to accept. More recently, he did advance to the third round at the US Open and Cincinnati Masters, but every time he faced a strong opponent, Schwartzman’s game crumbled. Even worse was his Davis Cup performance, as he lost to Mikael Ymer of Sweden, 6-2, 6-2, as Sweden defeated Argentina.
Diego Schwartzman and Stefanos Tsitsipas are scheduled to face each other in the second match of the first day of the 2022 ATP Laver Cup on Friday, September 23. The tournament is scheduled to begin on September 23 and end on September 25.
The 2022 ATP Laver Cup is scheduled to commence on September 23 and go on until September 25 this year.
