The Argentine Diego Schwartzman is undoubtedly among the best tennis player of South American tennis and specifically of the Argentina. After champions like David Nalbandian or Juan Martin Del Potro, Argentine tennis has had great difficulties and only Diego has managed to carry it forward with more than moderate results.
He is former number 8 in the world, semifinalist in Paris in 2020 and twice Quarterfinalist at the US Open. Pretty good results for a tennis player who is certainly not very physically gifted but who responds thanks to great technical skills.
Now Schwartzman is in great difficulty, having slipped to the margins of the ATP ranking, and at the age of 31 there are already those who question the career of the South American champion. In the meantime, the tennis player gave an interesting interview to Tennis Majors: here are his words where he reveals many of his problems.
Diego Schwartzman reveals the dramatic worst moment of his career
He explained: "I'm trying to improve, try to raise the level. It was a very difficult first part of the year for me, it all started at the end of last year, I was tired and I gradually lost several positions in the ATP rankings." After the Roland Garros, Diego had slipped out of the Top 100, now he is number 98 in the world rankings.
It's a new situation for the South American who explains: "I'm in a new situation compared to the past where, however, I remained fairly regular. Now I'm of a different age, I have a different game but in recent months I've been trying to raise the level, I feel good." The tennis player recently took part in an exhibition tournament in the States and then continued: "After Wimbledon I spent some time at home, now I'm ready for the next tournaments and I know that playing here in North America will be fantastic.
It's important to keep up and stay competitive and this exhibition tournament can help too, the new rules are always exciting." Diego's fans hope that the South American tennis player can return to where his talent has often led him and perhaps a stable return to the world's Top 100.
