The Italian Matteo Berrettini fell this Tuesday in the second round of the 1,000 Paris Masters against the American Marcos Giron, from the previous phase, by 7-6 (3), 6-7 (0) and 7-5. That defeat brings Argentine Diego Schwartzmn closer to the ATP Finals from London, since the transalpine was his main rival to achieve the last place left for that tournament.
There are three players who still have a mathematical chance of getting into the ATP Finals: Pablo Carreo Busta, Milos Raonic and Stan WawrinkaBut there must be something very strange: except for Carreo Busta (2445 points when entering the third round and 3355 if he comes out champion), none will pass Schwartzman even if they win Paris and the Argentine is eliminated in the second round.
In consecuense, the Argentine qualify in Paris himself if he reaches the semifinals, or if Carreo, Raonic or Wawrinka do not win the tournament. Otherwise, it will be defined in Bulgaria. The Peque will face tomorrow against the French Richard Gasquet, who beat American Taylor Fritz 6-0, 3-6 and 6-3.
