Diego Schwartzman finally won his first career title in his home country of Argentina on Sunday cruising past qualifier Francisco Cerundolo 6-1, 6-2.
“It was an emotional week. Very different because in the other weeks you don’t have all your family and friends with you, the people who never see you on court,” said Schwartzman who didn’t lose a set all week. “Having these moments, sharing this with them and winning the title is a totally different feeling. It’s amazing.
“Two years ago, I reached the final here and lost,” he added. “I was very unhappy, but two years later I have my revenge against Francisco, who is a great player.”
Schwartzman collected his 4th career ATP title, first since 2019 Cabos, snapping a 4-match losing streak in finals. Three of his four career title have come on clay.
Cerundolo’s brother, Juan Manuel, just won his first title last week in Cordoba. Today, the two were trying to become the first brother duo to win titles back-to-back weeks.
