On Monday, the first round of the 2022 Gijon Open will pit the 45th-ranked Sebastian Korda against the 58th-ranked Jaume Munar.
Although Korda is presently rated 45th in the world, he once held the 30th spot. His performance hasn’t been poor by any means, but Korda needs to improve significantly from his recent performances if he wants to move up from the 30th-ranked player in the world to the top 10. For instance, Korda has only ever won three games in a tournament since April, and that was in Washington. Korda hasn’t advanced past the second round in seven of the other ten contests during that time frame.
Munar has a 7-10 record this year on hard courts and a 3-6 record in the last six competitions. Although he has improved to 17-21 overall thanks to his slightly more reliable performance on clay, these are not the kinds of performances you would anticipate from someone who had been predicted to be a Next Gen star. Despite this, he might enter this match with some confidence following what happened at the Japan Open the previous week. The 25-year-old also lost in the second round there, but not before cruising to a 6-3, 6-3 victory over world No. 2 Casper Ruud in his opening match.
Sebastian Korda and Jaume Munar are scheduled to face each other in the first 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.
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.
