Next up was Diego Schwartzman, Argentina’s 2019 Cabo Tennis Open champion. He spoke about his early career and how fortunate he was to have the support of his parents. He also mentioned the abundance of sporting talent in Argentina during that time.

Other in-depth discussion topics were current mental health issues and the influence of social networks. “It can be difficult for the younger generation. When I was in school, smartphones didn’t exist, but now they seem to be everywhere. This can create both positive and negative pressures. Personally, I don’t feel affected by it too much since I have everything blocked on my phone. However, it may be more of a concern for my family.” said Diego.

A fun exchange was made with El Peque, in which he had to choose only one option between the Arthur Ashe or the Bombonera or what he would name his son Diego or Leo? Their answers were the Argentine stadium and Diego Jr.

World No. 12 Casper Ruud was the final guest to appear, and he shared how his father, a former tennis player, influenced his career development. He also revealed his dynamic for combining personal and professional sports life.

“It’s hard to balance; there are several sacrifices, and I’ve had to decline invitations, but I try to focus on things outside of tennis as well. I have a dog, and it takes time. I won’t play forever, and I’ll have time for those other things.”, shared the three-time Grand Slam finalist, who has up to 70 flights a year and assures that he will not travel excessively in retirement.
