With a 6-0, 6-4 win over Miomir Kecmanovic on Saturday, Diego Schwartzman booked a spot in the Argentina Open final against Francisco Cerundolo.

Schwartzman will be facing the 22-year-old for the first time in his career, but he can go into the match with confidence, knowing he's already defeated Cerundolo once this week—in the #ArgentinaOpenChallenge, a juggling competition that combines tennis and soccer skills.

The rules are simple: bounce the ball off your foot, or the edge of your racquet, as many times as you can without dropping it. Cerundolo, who came through qualifying in Buenos Aires to make his first ATP final, scored 12 points.


Schwartzman, though, doubled his opponent's total, confidently using both feet to tally 24.

Also competing were Thiago Tirante, who got 10 points, and Facu Diaz Acosta, who registered 18.

The championship match is Schwartzman's first final of the year; he reached three in 2020. In February, Cerundolo had a run to the final at the Challenger level, in Concepcion, Chile.
