TennisSection previews the 2022 Argentina Open as Casper Ruud takes on Diego Schwartzman in the final on Sunday, February 13th, 2022.
Will Casper Ruud get the win? Will Diego Schwartzman pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where the top two seeds and two of the best clay courters in the world clash for the trophy. Who will win the 2022 Argentina Open?
Casper Ruud got a great win over Delbonis, showing he’s in top form and ready to roll to the trophy as he takes on the other top dog this tournament in Diego Schwartzman. Ruud is the favorite, but he can very well lose this match, and I most certainly don’t expect him to win it easily either way. Ruud has been in top form, not losing a set thus far and hitting the ball with excellent precision and with perfect pop. Schwartzman probably won’t be able to do as much damage as Ruud as he can simply hit it bigger and better, being the more aggressive player throughout carrying him to the title at the 2022 Argentina Open.
Diego Schwartzman got a tough win over Lorenzo Sonego, and had he not needed 3 sets for that encounter, I might have put him as the favorite over no. 1 seed Casper Ruud. However, Ruud hasn’t dropped a set so far and Schwartzman has dropped a few, as well as losing in the semis a week earlier in Cordoba. Schwartzman can beat Ruud as we have seen time and time again, and I think he’s the guy in the field who can counter the way he plays, Ruud is a consistent ball striker, but he also hits the ball huge in attempts to be aggressive, Schwartzman can counterpunch. Considering his rusty form as of late though, I have to give it to Ruud as he aims to edge past the Argentine to take the trophy home at the 2022 Argentina Open.
Casper Ruud and Diego Schwartzman have played seven times before, with Diego Schwartzman leading the head to head 5-2.The head to head is most certainly misleading, with Schwartzman beating him 4-0 from 2018-2022, where Casper Ruud was nothing compared to today while Schwartzman was already an established top player. Schwartzman can counter Ruud, and on his best day I would favor him, I just don’t see him playing that well as he has in the past as Casper Ruud aims to take this one and win the 2022 Argentina Open.
