Diego Schwartzman Career
Diego Schwartzman was born August 16, 1992, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to an international family: his Polish Jewish grandfather was able to escape Nazi persecution by moving to South America.
He began playing tennis at the age of seven. Like many of his compatriots, has a preference for a clay surface. Diego’s playing style is characterized by long draws from the line, largely due to his physical characteristics (Schwartzman is one of the shortest players on the Tour). He considers Spaniard Rafael Nadal his idol.
Diego made his debut at a Futures Series clay-court tournament in 2008. He had no notable success at junior level, but thanks to his persistence and diligence he turned pro after only two seasons, winning five doubles Futures and one singles at a stroke. 2012 brought the budding Argentine several more trophies, mostly in singles, which helped him noticeably improve his position in the rankings.
The 2013 season marked Schwartzman’s debut on the ATP Tour. Having passed the mandatory qualification, he wins the first round match in Buenos Aires, and then moves to Acapulco, where the tournament draw pairs him with Rafael Nadal, to whom the young tennis player predictably loses.
The next season Diego played his first Grand Slam main event. In France he managed to win one match, but then he fell to Roger Federer, and at the US Open he got Novak Djokovic as an opponent already in the first round. Nevertheless, his solid progress and wins on several Challenger Tour events enabled the Argentine to break into the top 100, and then return to prominence by winning the ATP Challenger World Tour Finals in the Brazilian capital.
Schwartzman’s success draws the attention of the national tennis federation, and he soon plays for the national team. In 2015 the young tennis player reached the semifinals of the Davis Cup with Argentina, but overall the season was not particularly successful for him. Nevertheless, in the spring of the following year Diego made a real breakthrough, winning the final victory at the championship in Istanbul. Interestingly, in the final he was opposed by Grigor Dimitrov, whom Schwarzman hung on to in the third set. In October, the Argentine made it to the second final of the ATP tournament (Antwerp) and, although he could not win, he came close to the top 50 at the end of the year.
2017 is shaping up to be one of the best of Schwartzman’s career. The tennis player defeated a top-10 player for the first time and then significantly improved his stats in the majors, reaching the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open for the first time in his career. This, as well as very decent results at the Masters, allows Diego to make a breakthrough in the rankings, ranking 25th. During the year he won more than a million and a half in prize money and came close to his idols in some key indicators (in particular, he became the third player on the tour to win the maximum number of games on reception).
Despite the fact that the grass segment of 2018 did not bring Schwartzman much success, he marked a strong game on the ground, winning his second ATP trophy and rising to the top-20 singles ranking. A year later he adds another trophy to his money and significantly improves his performance at Grand Slam tournaments, particularly Wimbledon, reaching the third round for the first time on an unfamiliar surface.
Diego Schwartzman gets one of the biggest wins of his life, beats 9 times champion Rafael Nadal 6-2, 7-5 to reach the semifinals in Rome for a 2nd straight year.

2020 was a real breakthrough for the Argentine. Despite a truncated season due to the coronavirus pandemic, Diego managed to break several personal records, breaking into the top 10. In particular, he stunned the public by reaching the final of the Rome Masters (he had to beat Rafael Nadal to do it) and then reached the semifinals of Roland Garros. His series of victories allowed him not only to move up the rankings noticeably (a record eighth place), but also to make his debut at the ATP Finals in London.
