Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas and Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman are set to square off in their Group D tie on Day 3 of the 2022 ATP Cup.

Tsitsipas withdrew from his scheduled singles match against Hubert Hurkacz on Day 1. While he’s healing well from the elbow surgery he underwent in November 2021, Tsitsipas said the withdrawal was a precautionary measure as he didn’t want to hamper his chances of competing at the Australian Open.

Tsitsipas did play his doubles tie, teaming up with Michail Pervolarakis to defeat the Polish duo of Hubert Hurkacz and Jan Zielinski 6-4, 5-7, 10-8. Without the 23-year old, Greece was left without their best player and lost their singles matches.

Diego Schwartzman’s ATP Cup campaign got off to a good start as he defeated Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-1, 6-2. It was a good day for Argentina overall, as they sit at the top of Group D after winning all of their matches on the first day.

Schwartzman was at his best, winning 78% of his first serve points and creating nine break point opportunities while winning five of them. The World No. 13 made very few mistakes in the match and will be looking to repeat this performance in the next round as well.
