RESPECT FROM THE BEST
Having already secured top spot in the rankings, you would forgive Novak Djokovic for taking his eye off the ball heading into this week and regrouping to get ready for the Australian Open in January.
Unfortunately for Schwartzman, that does not appear to be the case.
The Serbian does, however, highlight his opponent’s worth in the tournament and certainly won’t be taking the diminutive Argentinian for granted.
Speaking ahead of the group opener, Djokovic said: “He never played on this court but that probably is kind of releasing him from any pressure that he has to do well.
“Diego is in great form this year, it’s been the best season of his life, he deserves to be part of this tournament.
“I have lots of respect for him, he’s a fierce competitor and one of the quickest players on the Tour.”

Hello! Welcome to day two coverage from the 2020 ATP Finals in London.
This afternoon’s tie sees a re-run of the final from this year’s Italian Open as World Number 1 Novak Djokovic, kicks off his campaign against tournament debutant Diego Schwartzman.
Djokovic is a five-time winner of this year-end tournament and is a warm favourite to make it six but has not won the title since 2015.
He has already secured the World No1 spot for the end of 2020, making him year-end No1 for a record-equalling SIXTH time.
He joins Pete Sampras on the historic feat, whilst also becoming the oldest year-end No1 at the age of 33.
Schwartzman has had a great 2020, reaching top 10 in the world for the first time and reaching his maiden ATP Masters 1000 final – losing to Djokovic.
He did, however, beat Rafa Nadal in the semi-final and despite a candid response to the group draw, he will be quietly confident that he can mix it with the big boys.
