Nordea Open 2022: Diego Schwartzman vs. Pablo Carreno Busta Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Nordea Open as Diego Schwartzman takes on Pablo Carreno Busta in the quarterfinal on Friday, July 15th, 2022.

Two of the ATP’s best counterpunchers will go toe-to-toe in the quarterfinals of the Nordea Open. Will it be the defenses of Diego Schwartzman that come out on top? Or will the disciplined Pablo Carreno Busta reach his second semifinal of the season?

Third seed Diego Schwartzman held off a spirited charge by home favorite Elias Ymer to advance into the quarterfinals of the Nordea Open. The Argentine, who received a bye in the first round, nearly made a melee of the first set against his Swedish opponent Ymer. He led 3-0 at one point but gave the wild card a route back into the match. Ymer won five of the next six games, but could not serve for the set at 5-4. That collapse re-energizedSchwartzman who went on to grab the set and the match in dominant fashion. 

Pablo Carreno Busta, meanwhile, needed to overcome a pair of grueling matches to get to this stage of the Nordea Open. First up the Spaniard defeated 2015 French Open champion Stan Wawrinka in straight sets. Then he produced a fine comeback to deny compatriot Albert Ramos Vinolas in a thrilling three-setter that lasted nearly three hours. With this win, The Spaniard improves to 5-4 at the event, but has not progressed beyond the quarterfinals in his last four trips.

Pablo Carreno Busta leads Diego Schwartzman 3-1 in their head-to-head meetings. Carreno Busta has won their last two matches which were contested on clay including the semifinal clash at the Barcelona Open. It is clear that the Spaniard has been under the cosh this week at the Nordea Open and was perhaps slightly fortunate to get past Ramos Vinolas in the previous round. But that is not necessarily a bad thing. He remains an astute baseliner and might be well adept to outmuscle Schwartzman especially if it goes the distance.
