On September 10, Sebastian Ofner will try to continue his streak of victories in the match against Diego Schwarzman at the home tournament, and we have prepared a forecast for this match. Will the Argentinian show class on the ground?
The representative of Austria decided not to waste energy on the US Open, but to immediately prepare for the home tournament. Still, the soil is his favorite coating.
Offner started in Kitzbühel with a tough victory, but passed a worthy opponent in the person of Radu Albot (6-7, 6-4, 7-6). Whoever said anything, but native walls help, as we could see.
Sebastian is ready to fight for reaching the quarterfinals, but his opponent will be Diego Schwarzman, and this is a big problem. The Argentinean fights to the last, gives all the best and feels like a fish in water on the ground, so the Austrian is not to be envied.
Diego managed to play this season at the clay tournament in Cordoba and Buenos Aieres, where he proved himself from the best side, although he was injured and had to spend some time recovering.
The coronavirus then poured its plans into the tour, and we’ve already seen Schwartzman in action at the New York Major. The Argentinean opposed Cameron Norrie, although it was not possible to defeat the Briton, although we saw all five sets in almost equal fight.
As you can see, even on hard, the 13th racket of the world fights for every ball. The Buenos Aires native is the favorite against Sebastian Ofner and it’s hard to argue with that.
The opponents have not yet crossed paths on the court, this will be the first official meeting.
Last season Ofner reached the round of 16 at the Kitzbühel tournament.
In this round, Schwarzman played seven matches on the ground, of which he won five.
Whatever one may say, but the forces are far from equal. Sebastian Ofner falls short of the Argentine even at the home tournament in Kitzbühel. Diego Schwarzman loves playing on clay and clearly missed this surface.
In our opinion, the 13th racket of the world will not stretch the pleasure, but will immediately show who is the favorite. In short, we expect a confident victory for the representative of Argentina.
Our prediction is Diego Schwartzman’s victory, taking into account the handicap (-3.5) of the game for the odds of 1.54 in BC 1x
