Diego Schwartzman vs Aslan Karatsev: Prediction and Betting Tips
Diego Schwartzman looking to improve his form
The Argentine world number nine has been in good form lately winning the Argentina open earlier this year. He was eliminated from the Quarter-Final of the Barcelona Open last week by Pablo Carreno-Busta in a thrilling three-setter that could have gone either way.
Schwartzman is known for his incredible defensive game on clay and very hard shots on both forehand and backhand sides. Even though the Argentine is dubbed as a clay courter, he is yet to find his form of 2020 where he reached the semi-finals of the French Open.
Aslan Karatsev has been the dark horse climbing the ATP rankings this year. After a spectacular run to the semi-final of the Australian Open in which his opponent Schwartzman was one of his casualties, the Russian won his first-round match against Humbert in straight sets and is now on an 18-5 win-loss record in 2021.
Karatsev avenged his loss in the Australian Open against Novak Djokovic as he beat the world number one in Serbia last week and reached the final eventually losing to Berrettini in three sets. With this kind of form, Karatsev showed he can be very dangerous on clay.
- Schwartzman is on a 6-4 win-loss record in his last ten matches
- Karatsev is on a 7-3 win-loss record in his last ten matches
- Schwartzman’s 1st serve percentage for this year is 63%
- Karatsev won 82% of his points behind his first serve in the first round match against Humbert
Schwartzman vs Karatsev Prediction
At age 27 Aslan Karatsev has emerged as one of the best players on tour. Very few players possess the power and control that the Russian possesses. Karatsev likes to dominate his matches with his powerful forehand and serve and the conditions in Madrid will help his style of play.
Schwartzman on the other hand relies on his defense and forehand. The Argentine does not have a strong serve but his kick serve helps him in many situations on clay.
We think it will be a close game but we see Karatsev to be the winner in this one.
