Diego Schwartzman is one of Argentina’s finest tennis players on the circuit today. He is nicknamed El Peque (the short one) due to his small build and stature.

Schwartzman’s career hasn’t seen him notch much success in terms of titles won; he’s only won the four titles in a professional career that has lasted over 10 years at this point.

However, his good showings in Grand Slam events mean that his remains up in the top 20 of the ATP rankings; his highest position being the eighth position he managed to achieve towards the end of 2020.

Schwartzman’s game revolves around hitting strong forehand and backhand shots from the baseline; he is capable either as a counter-puncher or while going on the offensive.

However, he is better while defensive, as he can retrieve long shots better. He is also quick and that, combined with his baseline game, makes him better suited to clay courts.

Given his status as one of the sport’s most promising players, it is no surprise that he has mixed it up among the best of the best.

Thus, here we are going to look at his rivalries and his head-to-head record against a number of notable players on the tour.
