Pablo Carreno Busta and Thiago Monteiro are scheduled to face each other in the second round of the 2022 ATP Gijon Open on October 12.
Marc-Andrea Huesler was a 27/10 underdog in his first-round match against Carreno Busta at the Sofia Open two weeks ago, but the Spaniard fell short. Carreno Busta was defeated in three sets by Huesler in his first match since reaching the fourth round of the US Open. Aside from that loss, Carreno Busta did win the Cincinnati Masters, his first Masters 1000 title, to go along with his US Open fourth-round appearance. Carreno Busta has only played one indoor match this year, in Sofia, and he lost it, which is likely indicative of his overall struggles on this surface. Because, for a player who has ranked in the top 10, his indoor record is dismal.
While Pablo Carreno Busta received a bye in the opening round of the competition, Monteiro had to defeat Benjamin Bonzi. Despite being a 23/10 underdog in that match, the Brazilian found a way to defeat his opponent. In fact, Thiago Monteiro defeated Bonzi in one hour and 23 minutes, beating the Frenchman 6-4, 7-5. Only two break-points were presented to Monteiro, who broke his opponent three times when given the chance. This victory came shortly after Monteiro demonstrated some growth on hard court surfaces by reaching the third round of the Cincinnati Masters and the second round of the US Open.
Pablo Carreno Busta and Thiago Monteiro are scheduled to face each other in the second round of the 2022 ATP Gijon Open on Wednesday, October 12. The tournament is scheduled to begin on October 10 and end on October 16.
