Diego Schwartzman suffers final-set bagel as he loses out to Cristian Garin in Cordoba final
Diego Schwartzman suffered a blow on Sunday, losing in the final of the Cordoba Open to an inspired Cristian Garin.
Schwartzman was the favourite to take the title, and looked to be in control of the match before slipping to a 2-6, 6-4, 6-0 defeat.
After a slow start, Garin overpowered the home favourite, hitting lines and never backing down against Schwartzman, the 27-year-old Buenos Aires native.
Meanwhile, Jiri Vesely fired 26 aces in edging out Egor Gerasimov 7-6 (7-2) 5-7 6-3 to claim the Tata Open Maharashtra.
The Czech star admitted he rode his luck en route to his second career ATP Tour title, having saved multiple match points in both the quarter and semi-finals.
“I have to be realistic, I had a lot of luck in the week, saving six match points across two matches in a row,” said Vesely.
“I think that happens once in a lifetime, maybe, you never know; two matches in a row, especially in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, is really big.
“I am happy with the week, I’ve been waiting for it for so long.
“I have been working hard, very hard, to be with a trophy again.”
