Re: Diego Schwartzman Appreciation Thread - Welcome Diego to TOP 20!

Great post. OK, after reading this and all the comments I'm changing my pick to Diego for the final. :x Sorry Fernando but you will always have Madrid 2012, when you upset Rafa, then upset him after the match with your disrespectful (over) celebrating. :wink2:

Re: Diego Schwartzman Appreciation Thread - Welcome Diego to TOP 20!

Diego might become the GOAT of his height division :yeah: I know Rod Laver was little too, but it was not much of a disadvantage in his era. Nowadays, however, when power is a crucial factor in tennis, getting to top 20 with 1.7 m height is something special and a proof of Diego's talent.

It feels like Diego Schwartzman has been playing top 20 tennis for a while now, good to see him finally at a ranking that reflects his level, very well deserved.

Top 20 now and not much to defend in the next few months. He could soon be close to or even within the top 10. Great to see that it's also possible to achieve something in modern tennis for smaller players.

Diego Schwartzman's career is INSPIRING

:worship:

Diego now has 2 slam QF's to his name, and just 1 4R and 1 3R outside of them.

In 2015 at 22 he started playing the ATP tour (3-9 record before 2015) and was 11-22.

Re: Diego Schwartzman Appreciation Thread - Down but not out!

Yes, well done! Another QF, and after quite a ridiculous comeback (I know, Kev choked, but he had to work super hard to oull off the win)

Last few slam results: QF, R16, QF. Not bad.

no, the parent thread was started by myself to acclaim and summarise his rather remarkable career achievements relative to his size. I think this is in the same context, so we can build on it together :p

Dude is a beast, great timing and ability to take the ball on the rise, combined with ridiculous physical and mental stamina
