“I can’t find an explanation for this moment or for the game I lost. It’s a shame, for all the people who came and who tried to lift me up in one way or another. Both here and in Córdoba, the two weeks, what people did It was spectacular for me, but I didn’t give them anything back”, said the “Little One”, eliminated from the Argentina Open in the round of 16.
With just one win in his last 12 matches, Schwartzman, 30 years old and currently ranked 32nd in the ATP world ranking, fell to Zapata Miralles, 74th in the ranking.
The tennis player, who will descend next Monday up to 38th place after to have been 16 in the world until August 2022, he did not attend the press conference but he did stop to attend the media in the mixed zone for interviews at the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club.

“The truth is that today my level is very low and I can’t be competitive, neither with the help of the people, nor with some mistake from the rival. That’s the reality, I have to lose games that perhaps I won before with this score and now I lose them in this way. It is difficult for me to find an explanation, from there also arises the uncertainty with which I am playing “analyzed the tennis player from Club Náutico Hacoaj.
The next tournament for “Peque” should be the ATP 500 in Rio de Janeiro next week, where he reached the final last year, as in the Argentina Open, although the bad moment he is going through will lead him to discuss with his coach, the tennis player Juan Ignacio Chela, the steps to follow, if it is convenient for him to continue competing or take a week off.
“It is clear that I am not facing it in the best way, I am doing something wrong, hopefully I can find the reason for this situation,” Schwartzman finally replied, who was number 8 in the world in 2020, when he advanced to the Roland Garros semifinals. .
