Rafa on playing Diego Schwartzman:
He is one of the most talented players on our tour. He has everything, amazing control, amazing speed. He has the ability to read very well your shots and to understand very well the game. Is not a surprise he is there.
Diego is playing unbelievable. I need to play my best in the next round to have the chance to be in that semifinals.
Tomorrow is going to be a big day. I have many good games, very good matches against him. I had my chances against him in many matches, but I wasn’t able to win the opportunities against him. You never know when are going to come the next opportunities. Maybe it’s the next match against him. I need to be ready.
According to usopen.org, this is the 20th tournament he’s played in 2019, winning his third career title in July at the Los Cabos hard-court event. Currently ranked No. 21, the Argentine has a career-high mark of No. 11, the highest ranking achieved by a player 5-foot-seven or shorter since 5-foot-six Harold Solomon was No. 10 in 1981.
Good luck & Vamos Rafa!
