We end the day with a tennis tip, from the match between the Argentine Diego Schwartzman and the Chilean Cristian Garin, in the final of Cordoba, the match is scheduled to start after midnight in Romania.
More details, but also the prognosis offered, in the below.
Diego Schwartzman: Team shape, news and statistics
◾️Diego Schwartzman came back as he could not get better on his favorite surface.
◾️The Argentine managed to qualify in the final of his first tournament on the slag this year and not anyway, but in front of his own fans.
◾️In Cordoba, Diego, the No. 1 seed, gave up only one set in the 3 games played and had no slightest excitement in qualifying in the last act of the second edition of the tournament in Cordoba.
◾️Strange or rather atypical was last night’s match, when Diego gave up a more than surprising 1-6 set.
◾️It is very difficult for Schwartzman to drop a set at such a point.
◾️Only if it evolves against top players or that excel on the red surface Diego could yield in such a way, but not even against a Thiem, Nadal or South American Djokovic would yield in such a categorical way.
◾️Of course, we put this lost set to the category of events and certainly the Argentine has learned from the mistakes made against the Serb.
◾️The final match will be against another South American, who also excels on the slag.
◾️Diego knows why the Chilean is capable and he is aware that he will have a tough opponent to knock down.
◾️But the little tennis player has all the necessary weapons to walk the giant in Chile and to impose himself in his first final of 2020.
Cristian Garin: Team shape, news and statistics
◾️Cristian Garin also returned well on his favorite surface.
◾️The Chilean thus ticks the first final of 2020 and the fourth of his career.
◾️The previous 3 were all in 2019, of which 2 were won.
◾️It is clear that Cristian is coming after the best season of his career and this year he must confirm the good results of last season.
◾️Obviously, all the finals were on the slab, just like the first one this season.
◾️The Chilean has evolved a lot in 2019 and has improved his game on the other surfaces.
◾️But Garin’s specialty remains slag, the surface he feels best.
◾️If at first, when he lifted his head in high tennis Cristian impressed only by his cannon service, now the Chilean has a much more complex game and impresses in several chapters.
◾️From the service, to the return or backhand or forehand hits.
◾️And the results were seen. Three finals in 2019 and already the first one checked in 2020.
◾️If in the 3 games played he had no big problems, giving up only 2 sets, Garin will have a real test of the past in the final in Cordoba.
◾️The Chilean will face the player who can cope best.
◾️Schwartzman is a tennis player who excels in all the chapters, and the Argentine’s style of play poses great problems for Garin.
◾️It is certain that the final will be a contested one and I think we will have a guaranteed performance.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Diego Schwartzman vs Cristian Garin
I expect a spectacular match in the final in Cordoba.
The two tennis players performed very well this week and fully deserved to enter the final act of the competition.
The public favorite leaves with the first chance, but he has to be careful because Garin is a formidable opponent on the slag.
But I think that in the small runs that the Chilean has shown in the last 2 games, Schwartzman can make the most of them in the final tonight.
Diego has perhaps the most important weapon against Garin: the return.
If the Argentine returns as many balls to Cristian, then he can impose himself in front of the Chilean and do it even categorically.
That is why they go on a success without too much emotion for the favorite of the public from Cordoba.
Prediction Today: Victory Schwartzman at H of 2.5 games
Diego Schwartzman is a rather short tennis player, a modest service.
In addition Diego is prone to double mistakes, he in this tournament having 3 doubles with Munar, 3 with Ramos and 3 with Djere. Cristian Garin is much better at this, and much more careful about doubles.
Thus, here he has 2 doubles with Balazs, 2 with Pablo Cuevas and 2 with Martin, in the near past having 1 with Travaglia or 1 with Chardy.
So I think Schwartzman will make several double mistakes, my prediction going to this idea at a quote offered by Betfair.
