21:33 in the field
The two tennis players go to the middle to warm up.
According to the precedents, the match between Nadal and Schwartzman appears to be one-sided. In fact, the Argentine has never beaten the Spaniard in his career and has not even won a set in the last three challenges. For Nadal, however, it is the first tournament since his resumption after the forced stop due to Covid-19. Schwartzman. Instead, he already has two tournaments behind him: Us Open and Kitzbühel (Austria).
Nadal had a perfect roadmap in Rome: In the two games played, he didn’t even lose a set and gave up his opponents Carreno-Busta and Lajovic, only 6 games, only 2 hours and 45 minutes on the field. Schwartzman, on the other hand, had a less brilliant path: he struggled to beat Hurkacz on a comeback and Millman and stayed on the field for four and a half hours.
