The Argentine tennis player, Diego Schwartzman received his first-round victory at the Barcelona Open 2019 against the Japanese, Yoshihito Nishioka and today, he will be facing the third seed, Dominic Thiem in the second round.
It was the third consecutive match in Barcelona for the Argentine which was followed by his two qualifier matches and in the press conference, Diego Schwartzman bleated for his tiring agenda in the Spanish ATP 500 event. “There is no reason for me to play again tomorrow, I have been running since Monday without stopping,” the World Number 25 exploded. “My team always scores me in the tournaments, I trust 100% in them and I never look at it, but this time they forgot, it’s a mistake that can happen”.
Diego Schwartzman continued to speak about the top ten rank-holders getting knocked out before the finals of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters 2019 and consequently, most of them opted to play this week and they received wildcards to participate. The Argentine signed up for the qualifiers three weeks ago and considers himself to be fortunate to get through those rounds.
Diego Schwartzman complains about his fourth consecutive match at the Barcelona Open 2019 and that does not give him adequate rest. He moans over the ATP’s scheduling and the tiresome routine has happened to him in the past during tournaments.
“I arrived at 02:00 on Friday at the hotel, I practically had no rest and I still do not have it,” he continued to speak. “The order of play is a shame, in fact, I had a strong discussion about it with the organization, but the ATP does not know what to say to me, just apologize.”
“The tournament is not to blame either, although they are the ones who put together the programming, I have been playing since Monday without stopping, so with the apologies I can not reach it. When we make mistakes on the court, the fines are very high. I’m angry with the tour manager and I’m going to make it public, this year has happened to me more times,” Diego Schwartzman mentioned.
