Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Diego Schwartzman 

Stefanos Tsitsipas is making his return to the circuit after facing a first round defeat at the US Open this year. He was defeated by qualifier Daniel Elahi Galan. Tsitsipas however looks to put his poor showing in Grand Slam tournaments behind and start afresh at the Laver Cup, as he faces Diego Schwartzman on the singles on Friday. The Greek is making his third appearance in the tournament and hasn’t lost a singles match so far.

Meanwhile, Schwartzman is ranked 17th in the world and has a fairly decent run this year in the ATP Tour. He last featured in the ATP Tour at the US Open, where he was ousted from the second round. Much recently he lost in the Davis Cup contest against Sweden’s Mikael Ymer and now looks to get back to winning ways.

Both the players faced each other five times in the past and Tsitsipas has a 3-2 lead in the head-to-head record against the Argentine. They faced three times in this year alone with Tsitsipas winning two matches. Their most recent meeting was at the Cincinnati Masters with Tsitsipas winning in straight sets.
