“I was rehabilitating my knee at the Barcelona hospital. It coincided right with the tournament, I wasn’t even aware. I saw people with snowshoes at the hotel and thought “good” … Later I found out that there was a tournament. It was that I was doing full rehab there: I had three or four shifts. In the morning work in a pool, at noon strength work and in the afternoon massage, ice and others, “explained the Kun. “We were several Argentines and they began to say that you were there.

Omen: Sure, this guy came after, we were talking. A little boy … He was big! It’s tall isn’t it How do you get three heads off to play?

Schwartzman: I run like a bastard! It’s like when you fight with the giant centrals, with that van Dijk.

Omen: Does the height serve for the serve?

Schwartzman: The height is more useful for the service, but apart from the service, what is most useful is when you have the long arm, the longest lever, because you generate much more force to the ball.

Omen: For example, Del Potro gets him strong, because he’s big …

Schwartzman: He has more possibilities of hitting him hard, he is big, heavy, he has good technique and he puts all the weight of the body, the height, that is how he enters the ball

Do you know who plays very well? The first time I went to play tennis Diego Forlan invited me. He said “let’s play” and Maxi Rodríguez also “let’s go, let’s go”. I went, they told me we played in pairs. I see that we are going to play and it begins to heat the serves … When I threw the ball I would put it (look from side to side disoriented). Stop, I say, is that the warm-up? No, I can’t play like that, just play by yourself! And I just sat there. I told them I look at you, you guys play .. I was breaking it!
