In an interview Diego Schwartzman praised Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. The Argentinean player said: "They are three best ever. I enjoy facing them and being able to tell that I competed against them and that I played tennis in the same era."
Asked what is the Grand Slam motivates him the most, Schwartzman replied: "French Open. The one I like the most, Australian Open." Asked what opponent he would like to play more than others, Schwartzman said: "I would have liked to play against Andy Murray.
I trained with him many times although I never competed with him on the court." Asked what's his dream, Schwartzman replied: "I accomplished several ones as a kid, but I would like to keep doing what I like the most.
I always said that at 32 years of age I want to retire because the Argentinean, being very far away from home all the time, suffers the distance. So I would like to get to 32 and have nothing to regret." Asked if he hoped that Daniil Medvedev would lose at the US Open, the St.
Petersburg Open Tournament Director Alexander Medvedev replied: "I was happy that he reached the final and I was sad he could not beat Rafa. I had no doubts that he would come to St. Petersburg. The main thing is that he is injury-free."
