MATCH PREVIEW

Nadal Goes On and On and On

 

Winning a fifth straight title at Roland Garros is something any male tennis player dreams of. Rafael Nadal has already done it once and a win this year in the French Open will incredibly see him achieve that feat for the second time. The number three seed takes on tenth seeded Diego Schwartzman in the last eight. The winner faces either Novak Djokovic or Matteo Berrettini in the semi-finals.

Nadal is yet to lose a set in this tournament. There were times in his last 16 match against Jannik Sinner when that looked possible. As usual though, when any sign of trouble appears, Nadal just ups a gear and wins the set. The first couple of sets against Sinner were close but then he won the final set without losing a game.

The Spaniard knows that the level of opposition is going to start increasing in the latter stages of this tournament. Not necessarily in this match but likely opponents from the next round will be Djokovic and then either Zverev or Tsitsipas. Nadal is not unbeatable on clay and has lost to both Zverev and Rublev this season.

Those were in best-of-three matches though, beating Nadal in a best-of-five at Roland Garros is a rarity. Not since 2015 has Nadal started a match here and left the court a beaten man. Nadal has had 11 previous matches against Schwartzmann and won ten of them. The only loss suffered by Nadal was on clay in Rome last year. The most recent meeting was the 2020 semi-final at Roland Garros with Nadal winning in straight sets.  He's won five of his six clay court matches played against Schwartzmann.

Mission Impossible?

 

The tenth seed has risen three places in the world rankings over the past year. A loss to Nadal will see him drop to 11th with Roberto Bautista Agut taking tenth spot. As far as points earned this year, Schwartzmann was 27th before Roland Garros but up to 13th now. He's won three ATP Tour clay court titles and won 16 when on the ITF and Challenger tours.

One clay court title has been won by Schwartzmann this year. That was in his native Argentina but his opponent was ranked 137th in the world. This year has seen several losses to players outside the top 100, so how can he beat Nadal, you have to ask. His European clay court season hasn't been a great success, his best being the last eight in Barcelona.

At Roland Garros, Schwartzmann had previously got to the last eight once before last year's semi-final loss to Nadal. This year has seen him win four matches without dropping a set. He's not had to face any seeds and had a tight battle in the last round with Jan-Lennard Struff, one set won on a tie-break, the other 7-5. Not since beating Dominic Thiem here last year has Schwartzmann beaten a player ranked above him. He'll have to wait a bit longer for that to happen again, back Nadal to beat him in straight sets.
