TennisSection previews the 2022 Cincinnati Open as Stefanos Tsitsipas takes on Diego Schwartzman in the Round of 32 on Thursday, August 18th, 2022.
Will Stefanos Tsitsipas get the win? Will Diego Schwartzman pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have one of the worlds best facing a dangerous opponent. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Cincinnati Open?
Stefanos Tsitsipas looked really good against Filip Krajinovic, granted the Serb hardly put up a fight, but Tsitsipas looked to have improved greatly since his loss in Montreal. As he comes up against Diego Schwartzman, he knows he’ll have to be at his best. From the baseline I think the Argentine will have quite a bit of success, but where Tsitsipas’ key to the match lies is in his serve, if he can serve well, I expect him to get through this one and into the last eight at the 2022 Cincinnati Open.
Diego Schwartzman had to fight through 2 tough wins already, against Molcan and Karatsev, dispatching them both in 3 sets. Although Stefanos Tsitsipas is a much tougher customer, Schwartzman’s baseline game looks really good on the speedy courts of Cincinnati, and I expect him to put up quite a showing, but ultimately I can’t foresee him being able to deal with the serving and the big hitting of the Greek at the 2022 Cincinnati Open.
Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman have met four times before, with their head to head being tied at 2-2. They’ve had a couple meetings on hard courts, with Schwartzman winning them both. Tsitsipas had to battle out Schwartzman in a really tough match in Monte-Carlo earlier this year. Schwartzman is able to really trouble Tsitsipas, forcing him to play from the baseline and really forcing him into the backhand corner. I expect him to put on a show, but ultimately the fourth seed will get it done at the 2022 Cincinnati Open.
