Argentine Diego Schwartzman fell 6-0 and 6-2 to Britain’s Cameron Norrie today and was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Indian Wells Tennis Masters 1000 in the United States.
The “Peque”, located in the fifteenth position of the ATP world ranking, was surpassed from start to finish by the British Norrie (26), who was left with an overwhelming victory on the main court of the tournament, after 1 hour and 15 minutes of a disparate showdown.
Schwartzman, who yesterday had perhaps the best performance of the year by beating Norwegian Casper Ruud, world number 10, today made many mistakes and was easy prey for Norrie, who gave the Argentine no respite and quickly dispatched them in two sets.
The first round was clearly in favor of the European, who broke the serve of the “Peque” three times and, at sheer power, was left with a resounding 6-0.
In the second boy the Argentine seemed to react, who recovered from a loss of service and rallied from 0-2 to equal it 2-2, but it was just a mirage, the British won the next four games, with two breaks included, and left out of the contest to Schwartzman.
To reach this match, the Argentine had successively eliminated the American Maxime Cressy, the British Daniel Evans and the Norwegian Casper Ruud.
Norrie, 26, is now 3-1 ahead of the Argentine in history after beating him in Acapulco 2019 and the US Open 2020, and today in Indian Wells, while losing in Antwerp (Belgium) 2018.
Schwartzman, 28, however, had his best performance of six appearances this year at Indian Wells, which is played on fast courts with $ 8.4 million in prizes.
