Who are Diego Schwartzman Parents?

Diego Schwartzman was born on August 16, 1992 to father Ricardo Sebastian and mother Silvana Schwartzman in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has German and Russian roots as his grandparents were European but traveled to South America and settled in Argentina. Her family was not from a wealthy background and owned a small clothing and jewelry business.

As a junior, Schwartman played tennis at Club Nautico Hacoaj, an Argentine Jewish sports club formed specifically for Jews who were not allowed to train at other city sports clubs in the early 1900s. His mother, Silvana, sold bracelets at junior tournaments to help pay for her son’s tennis fees.

The Argentine didn’t have a notable career during his teenage years, earning a career-high 217 in the world. He traveled across South America to compete in junior tournaments and received funding for his tennis expenses after viewers noticed his fighting spirit and determination on the court. Although he only made one major tournament appearance as a junior (qualifying for the 2010 US Open), Schwartzman won titles in Bolivia, Peru and Argentina at Futures tournaments and has continued his development to compete at the highest level.

He made his first appearance in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament at Roland-Garros after qualifying. However, his stint was cut short as he failed to defeat Roger Federer in the first round in Paris.

He always encouraged Schwartzman to participate in sports and never hesitated to help his son acquire the resources necessary to develop his skills as a tennis player. An interesting story about Ricardo’s grandfather is that he managed to escape from a Nazi concentration camp in Germany to start his new life in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
