Rafael Nadal and Diego Schwartzman meet Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the 2021 French Open.

Rafael Nadal is coming off a straight sets win over Jannik Sinner that took 27 games to decide. In the victory, Nadal won 81 percent of his first serve points and 43 percent of his second serve points. Nadal won 65 percent of his total service points and converted on nine of his 14 break points. Nadal was broken four times and had 30 unforced errors, but he still has yet to drop a set this tournament. Nadal hopes to make a grand slam semifinal for the ninth time in his last 11 tries. Nadal is 13-1 in French Open quarterfinal matches. Nadal has won nine straight matches on clay court.

Diego Schwartzman is coming off a straight sets win over Jan-Lennard Struff that took 35 games to decide. In the victory, Schwartzman won 60 percent of his first serve points and 49 percent of his second serve points. Schwartzman won 57 percent of his total service points and converted on eight of his 15 break points. Schwartzman saved eight of his 14 break points and got 73 percent of his first serves in play. Schwartzman has not dropped a set this tournament and has lost two or less games in six of his 12 sets. Schwartzman looks to make his second career grand slam semifinal. Schwartzman is 1-3 in career grand slam quarterfinal matches. Schwartzman has won seven of his last eight matches on clay court.

Nadal has won 10 of the 11 matches against Schwartzman. The lone loss came in 2020 Rome. Nadal has won four of the five meetings against Schwartzman on clay. Nine of the 11 meetings overall were decided in straight sets.

Schwartzman has been a strong sleeper these last few years at the French Open and plays his best on clay. It’s hard to overlook Schwartzman in this spot as somebody who could push Nadal. With that said, the history between these two doesn’t lie. Nadal has owned Schwartzman in 11 meetings. Nadal also owns the French Open, rarely dropping a single set, let alone a match.

Schwartzman is no pushover, but give me Nadal in straight sets.
