Only the Top 8 players in the world get to play this event, and Diego is surely happy to be one of them. He is now preparing for the event and he has just revealed what his goals are at the tournament.

“I dream of playing the final. Later, we are going to see the group and I think it will be important to win the first game, whichever I play. Because of how the accounts are, winning that game can give you the chances of going to the semifinals and it is the first objective I have. First win a group match and from there go on to the semifinals. But I dream of playing the final,” Schwartzman said.
