Schwartzman vs Cuevas prediction
ATP Buenos Aires Q/F: Diego Schwartzman (14) vs Pablo Cuevas (48)
Pablo Cuevas beat Albert Ramos Viñolas 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in their Round of 16 match and it was a high-class affair. The quality of rallies and the technique Cuevas showed was top notch. Viñolas tested him with every kind of angle but when Cuevas had an answer to everything. Cuevas beat Sonego 6-4, 6-4 in his first match.
Diego Schwartzman, the number 1 seed here beat Delbonis 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 last night after receiving a first-round bye. He reached the finals of the recently concluded Córdoba Open, losing to Garin. Diego was also the finalist at this tournament in 2019. Diego's dream would obviously be to win a title on home soil, and he is the favourite to lift it here.
H2H: 3-3 with Cuevas winning their last 2 matches.
Schwartzman has been playing peak tennis for a few months now. But Cuevas has hit top gear here and in my opinion, has a good chance of causing an upset. Both are home players so it won't be like the crowd will turn against either of them.
Cuevas has been serving brilliantly and Diego will find it hard to break. And Cuevas' defence (especially in the 3rd set shows that he is in a rich vein of form).
Cuevas should atleast win a set and cover this margin. I wouldn't be surprised if he wins this match.
