Argentinian Schwartzman was up 2-0, but Carreño reacted by breaking his serve and leveling the match 2-2.
Curiously, this same result is the one that will also start the other semifinal, between Alcaraz and De Miñaur, at the same time.
“I’m very happy. After yesterday’s rain, we knew that the day was going to be tough, maybe not that hard, although I’m leaving with two wins and one more experience on center court. We enjoy tennis at times like these. They were two very tough matches both physically and mentally. Against Ruud I saved the second set, I had confidence and I really enjoyed myself on the court”.
On the other hand, today, the day has dawned sunny in the Catalan capital, and although there are some clouds in the sky, it is almost ruled out that there will be precipitation.
We’ll see if today the ‘Peque’ draws the face to face with Carreño and is planted in a new final after the one harvested in the M1000 of Montecarlo.
Today before Schwartzman we will see if the saying that the third time is the charm becomes good…
In addition, on clay they have met only once, precisely in Barcelona last year, and it was also the Spaniard who won in three sets 6-4, 3-6 and 7-5.
And it will not be before 4:00 p.m. when the final will be played, between the winners of the individual semifinals, on the Rafa Nadal court.
Thus, the semifinals of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell will finally be played this Sunday, the same day as the final, so the load of minutes on the tennis players’ legs will be higher than expected.
Both players broke the opponent’s serve once. Schwartzman started by going 2-0 up, but Carreño reacted in time to put the equalizer on the scoreboard.
The two semifinals of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell Trophy can be followed simultaneously through the Esport 3 channel.
In the same way, the semifinal between Carreño and Schwartzman can be seen on the Movistar Deportes 1 channel, of the Movistar+ digital platform.
The game is scheduled for 11 am (peninsular time), after it was postponed yesterday for several hours due to the rain that fell in Barcelona.
The game started, but again the rain made the efforts of the pisteros useless to dry the water from the track.
Pablo Carreño and Diego Schwartzman are looking for their place in the final in Barcelona, where the winner of the other semifinal matchup, between Alex de Miñaur and Carlos Alcaraz, will face off.
