Tennis News, Chris O’Connell advances to Round 3 of the 2022 Australian Open after he nailed down 13th seed Diego Schwartzman from Argentina in straight sets


Outstanding performance from Chris O’Connell on Round 2 of the 2022 Australian Open as he just knocked down Diego Schwartzman from Argentina in straight sets (6-4 via 6-8 tiebreaker, 4-6 & 4-6), even though it was a really close battle throughout the entire three-hour tie at Court No.3.

Schwartzman was gutted to be eliminated on Day 4 after he came here as the 13th seed in this draw, he showed some fight a couple of times where he did his best to close in on O’Connell & didn’t take his opponent lightly. However, he couldn’t hold the Australian back every time his opponent won set after set, plus he was also hesitant about the lack of conversions which is something Schwartzman couldn’t back up on the tennis court today.

And congratulations to Chris O’Connell with a huge & breakthrough win, it wasn’t the easiest of challenges when he came up against someone, who is closer to the Top 10 seeds, in this year’s Australian Open. Well, he managed to overcome plenty of these competitive battles against Schwartzman before O’Connell nailed it all through every checkpoint and later the finish line after three sets done early out of five.

Let’s see if he can go all the way having entered the men’s singles draw as the wildcard.
