Indian Wells Masters 2023: Casper Ruud vs. Diego Schwartzman Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2023 Indian Wells Masters as Casper Ruud takes on Diego Schwartzman in the second round on Friday, March 10, 2023.

Casper Ruud is looking to turn his season around at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters. But with Diego Schwartzman finding a rare win in the first round, could the Argentine complicate matters for the World No. 4?

Casper Ruud vs. Diego Schwartzman Match Preview

Casper Ruud has not had the best of time on Tour, which is why it is imperative he finds his footing at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters. With a ton of points to defend in the coming weeks, Ruud needs a big fortnight at the desert. He is 3-4 for the season and looked totally gassed in the opening weeks of the season after touring the world playing exhibition tournaments in December. Let’s see if he will bounce back when he takes on Diego Schwartzman.

Diego Schwartzman, like Casper Ruud, was also having a rough year. Schwartzman’s poor results stemmed from the back end of last season and has dropped as low as #38 in the rankings. He has already been overtaken by Francisco Cerundolo as his country’s No. 1 player. Schwartzman, however, stopped the rot at the Indian Wells Masters where he notched just his second ATP win of the season by thrashing compatriot Federico Coria 6-1 6-2.

Casper Ruud vs. Diego Schwartzman Prediction and Pick

Diego Schwartzman leads Casper Ruud 5-3 in their head-to-head, with half of their matches contested on clay. Neither player has been in good form coming to the Indian Wells Masters. But with Ruud getting a much-needed after Melbourne, he should have a spring in his step to get his campaign back on track. Expect the Norwegian third seed to flip the switch.
