Diego Schwartzman’s outstanding record in opening-round matches this season almost took a hit at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, but the 12th seed came back from the brink to triumph against Miomir Kecmanovic in a Tuesday afternoon epic at the ATP Masters 1000 event.
An evenly matched contest full of entertaining baseline battles ended in dramatic fashion as the Argentine recovered 0-3 in the third set and saved two match points at 4-5 before clinching a 6-2, 3-6, 7-6(3) win in two hours, 44 minutes in Rome.
The German struggled to find the form that carried him to a 10th Masters 1000 championship match appearance at the Mutua Madrid Open last week, but he found a sufficient level to outlast Estoril champion Baez and clinch a 7-6(6), 6-3 in an intriguing second-round encounter at the Foro Italico.
Despite a disappointing loss to Carlos Alcaraz in the Madrid final, the German looked to his best at times in the Spanish capital after an inconsistent start to 2022, which left the world No. 3 still in search of the first title of the year.
He will hope to use the win at Badge as a foundation for another deep race in Rome, where he claimed his first Masters 1000 title in 2017 as a 20-year-old.
The second set was played out in a similar fashion as Baez continued to lay a bit behind his delivery, but Zverev put together a series of high-quality returns in the eighth game to get his only break of the match.
He dismissed without a problem in Rome to improve his match record to 14-4.
