Novak Djokovic vs. Diego Schwartzman Pick – ATP French Open May 29, 2022

All eyes are on Novak Djokovic in Paris on Sunday afternoon. He is off to the fourth round against Diego Schwartzman in the French Open. The French Open Final is scheduled for next Sunday at Roland Garros.

A rematch against Carlos Alcaraz could be in the works next Sunday. Alcaraz had to fight off an upset bid from Ramos-Vinolas in the second round. Djokovic plans to figure into the equation, as he is the top-rated player in the French Open and in good form.

Ramos-Vinolas forced a fifth set, but couldn’t finish Alcaraz off. Alcaraz looked hot to open the match, with a 6-1 win and it looked like it was going to be another easy win.

However, Ramos-Vinalos won the next two sets, 7-6 and 7-5. That was an impressive effort from Ramos-Vinalos to put Alcaraz on the brink of a massive upset.

Credit him for the solid work, but finishing an opponent is part of being a good player.

This isn’t something that Djokovic has had to deal with in the French Open. He’s been on fire and hasn’t dropped a set going into the fourth round on Sunday.

In the last round, Djokovic is coming off a 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene. All of his opponents have been unseeded, with No. 15 Schwartzman a step up in class.

Schwartzman had a second round scare as well, with a fifth set win against Jaume Munar. He won 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 in the final three sets after getting behind 0-2. Munar ran out of gas and couldn’t keep up.

While Djokovic is stepping up in class to Schwartzman, this is especially the case with Schwartzman going from Grigor Dimitrov to Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic vs. Diego Schwartzman Prediction:

Diego Schwartzman had to work again to beat Jaume Munar. However, after a 6-7 loss in the second set, something must have gone off for Schwartzman.

He’s won his next six sets since then.

Schwartzman hasn’t been touched with set wins of 6-2, 6-2, 6-2, 6-3, 6-1, 6-2. No. 18 Grigor Dimitrov couldn’t get into a rhythm against Schwartzman, a better player on the clay.

Schwartzman is 18-6 on the clay in 2022. Over the last three years, he’s finished 46-18 on the clay. This is where he feels most comfortable, and has given Djokovic problems on the clay before.

At times, he gave him a pretty good battle on the clay despite losing six straight matches to Djokovic. They went to five sets in 2017 at Roland Garros and had another close finish in Rome two years ago.

Schwartzman didn’t win, but he was able to force a third set in a 6-3, 6-7, 6-3. He is dealing with a Djokovic that is playing out of his mind at the moment, though his competition has been weak as of late.

Schwartzman’s work around the net improved considerably after nearly suffering a straight set upset in the second round.

The native of Greece prides himself on his impeccable defense. It’s hard to catch Schwartzman out of position, especially on the clay, his specialty.

This looks like an unlikely situation for a win, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him force a fourth set. There should at least be a set that goes down to the wire. I’m on the OVER at 30 games at Roland Garros.
