In April 2008, Schwank won two consecutive Challenger events, the first in Cremona, Italy and the second in Rome, Italy. On May 12, 2008, a hotel in which Schwank was staying while competing in a Challenger event in Bordeaux, France caught fire.

Schwank was not in his room at the time. He ended up winning the tournament, making that his third consecutive Challenger title.[7]

He was involved in a legal battle after reportedly being accused of responsibility for the blaze by leaving an oven switched on in his room. He denied the charges.[8]
