Diego Schwartzman Form
Diminutive Argentine Diego Schwartzman had a career-best clay season in 2020, defeating Rafael Nadal on his way to the final of the Rome Masters and going on to reach the semifinal of the French Open, beating Dominic Thiem on the way.
The slow, heavy conditions of that autumn French Open suited Schwartzman. But he has not had such success on European clay in 2021 despite winning a title in Buenos Aires.
So far at the French Open Schwartzman has not dropped a set. But he also has not faced very stiff opposition in Yen-Hsun Lu, Aljaz Bedene (struggling with a hand injury) and veteran Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Jan-Lennard Struff Form
Big-serving Jan-Lennard Struff caused one of the upsets of the tournament in the first round when he beat seventh seed Andrey Rublev, a win which shows how overwhelmingly effective Struff’s game can be.
Struff has faded physically in the past in long matches, but did not do so against Rublev, and went on to beat Facundo Bagnis and 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz in straight sets.
This is the second time Struff has made the last 16, having done so in 2019 when he beat Borna Coric and Denis Shapovalov before losing to Novak Djokovic in straight sets.
Struff’s win over Rublev was the first he has ever recorded over a top-10 player at a Grand Slam. With his current momentum, fitness, and the fact that his weapons off the ground dwarf Schwartzman’s, and the conditions in Paris, he has an excellent chance at another top-10 win.
Diego Schwartzman vs Jan-Lennard Struff meet in the French Open fourth round on Sunday 7 June.
