2015[edit]

Schwartzman's best result of the season came at the 2015 Istanbul Open where he reached the semifinals, beating former top ten player Jurgen Melzer along the way. In the semis he faced tennis legend Roger Federer. Schwartzman won the first set decisively before ultimately falling 7-5 in the final set. He was also part of the Argentine Davis Cup team, which reached the semifinals in 2015.

2016[edit]

Diego won his first ever singles title at the 2016 Istanbul Open - an outdoor 250 clay court event. He impressively defeated established top player Grigor Dimitrov in the final, coming back to win 6-0 in the final set after losing the first set in a tie-break. Later, Dimitrov excused his behavior during the match, after he smashed three rackets, which ultimately led to a warning, a point penalty and then another point penalty. The second and final point penalty came with Dimitrov down 5-0 and gave the game, set and match to Schwartzman.[9] In October he reached his second final at 250 level, in Antwerp. He lost to Richard Gasquet 6-7, 1-6 in the final.

2017[edit]

He reached the 3rd round of a grand slam at the 2017 French Open where he faced Novak Djokovic. He managed to gain 2-1 set lead but eventually faded and Djokovic won in 5 sets.
