Francisco Cerundolo and Manuel Guinard will face each other in the round of 16 of the 2022 ATP Firenze Open October 13.
Francisco Cerundolo had just played his second match on indoor hard courts in Astana last week and had little to no experience on the main tour at the time, but he is now in a position to compete in an indoor ATP event as a seeded player and receive a bye in the first round. After a pair of difficult outings on the main tour in Australia earlier this year, the young Argentinian player returned to clay Challenger events, but he quickly managed to develop and settle on the main circuit. This year, he not only won an ATP championship (in Bastad), but he also put on a number of encouraging hard court performances.
The first round of this week’s ATP Gijon included Fabio Fognini, who has retired twice this year and was having physical difficulties. Manuel Guinard made the most of the situation to defeat him with a remarkable victory of 4-6 6-0 2-0. Hugo Gaston and Michael Mmoh were defeated in three sets in the first and second rounds, respectively, by the Frenchman, who has only won one first-round match on the main circuit once before this year in Lyon, where he also competed as a qualifier and advanced to the quarterfinals.
Francisco Cerundolo and Manuel Guinard are scheduled to face each other in the second round of the 2022 ATP Gijon Open on Thursday, October 13. The tournament is scheduled to begin on October 10 and end on October 16.
The ATP Gijon Open 2022 will have five rounds of action excluding the qualifiers. These are the round of 32, round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final. The competition’s main draw is set to commence on October 10, 2022 and conclude on October 16, 2022.
