Schwartzman strikes blow at US Open

Posted September 04, 2017

In a bottom half of a draw without a grand slam finalist and where American John Isner is now the highest seed at number 10, Schwartzman will take on either France's Lucas Pouille or Kazakh Mikhail Kukushkin for a quarter-final spot.

Diego Schwartzman claimed one of the most impressive wins of his career as he stunned Marin Cilic to continue his superb run at the US Open. I am a little bit old than those guys, but I try to improve every year.

"It's not just for the tall guys", said Schwartzman, the 29th seed who in 2016 lost in the first round of all four Grand Slams.

Marin Cilic, the last remaining Grand Slam victor in his half of the draw, crashed out of the US Open on Friday.
