“Be careful what you wish for” is an English saying. Final rookie Diego Schwartzman also had to experience it painfully. The Argentine had “wanted” Rafael Nadal, Dominic Thiem and Stefanos Tsitsipas as opponents of the group before the tournament. He got exactly the opposite: Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev.
So only those players who particularly love and play successfully indoors. Schwartzman took the draw with humor and for the 28-year-old taking part in London is already a huge success. With Novak Djokovic he meets world number 1 on Monday afternoon (3 pm live on SRF two).
Follow Monday’s two matches at the London ATP Finals live on SRF and in the Sports app:
- 15:00, SRF two: Djokovic – Schwartzman
- 21:00, SRF info: Zverev – Medvedev
In the evening “Paris re-match”
In the evening there will be a duel between Zverev and Medvedev between the two formally strongest players. The German recently won two indoor tournaments in Cologne and made it to the final at the ATP 1000 in Paris-Bercy, where he lost to Medvedev. For the Russian it was only the 2nd victory in the 7th duel with Zverev.
For Medvedev, London also wants to sell better than last year. In 2019, the 24-year-old lost all three matches in the Italian group and only won one set.
