Dimitrov stays hot

Rounding out Dimitrov’s matchup against top-ranked clay courter Stefanos Tsitsipas (based on Elo-rating), he is 10-1 on the surface this year and has won 14 straight sets on his way back to Barcelona.

Dimitrov has demonstrated his world-class athleticism and ability to work hard to dominate the clay. He has consistently found ways to convert defense into offense on his return and stay on the front foot during service games.

Throughout the European clay-court season, Dimitrov has reminded us why he was once ranked in the top three.

Schwartzman Finding His Way Through

It’s not easy for Diego to win with his style of play. Without large arms at his service, he often finds himself in extended rallies. However, the consistency and depth he produces off the ground in addition to his determination make up for what his weapons lack.

The Schwartzmann level is susceptible to extreme drops. They may have the best time off the field in the world, but when their timings fluctuate, they don’t have much to hold back. For the past few weeks, this has been evident from a 1-6 dropped set to Andrey Kuznetsov and a 1-6, 6-7 loss to Marcos Giron.

Despite his downfall at times, Schwartzman has found a way to keep winning and continues to deliver results like a top 20 player.
