Dominic Thiem and Francisco Cerundolo will face each other in the quarterfinal of the 2022 ATP Gijon Open October 14.
This week, Dominic Thiem delivered a bagel to end both of his matches. In the first round, he easily defeated reigning ATP Pune winner Joao Sousa, winning 6-2, 6-0. However, in the second round against Marcos Giron, he fought for more than an hour and lost, 3-6, 6-4, 6-0. Despite the difficulties, it was still a good outcome for the former world #3 and a step in the right way. He is still working on his comeback and lacks the strength and self-assurance needed to perform at a high level against opponents of calibre.
In the second round (R1 bye) of the ATP Gijon, Francisco Cerundolo defeated French qualifier Manuel Guinard to record his first-ever victory on indoor hard courts (as a professional). His seven-match losing record at all levels was also snapped with this victory. The Argentine has played the finest tennis of his career in these ten months and rose about 100 places in the ATP rankings, while Dominic Thiem has been battling fitness concerns and working hard to get back to his best level this year.
Dominic Thiem and Francisco Cerundolo are scheduled to face each other in the quarterfinal round of the 2022 ATP Gijon Open on Friday, October 14. The tournament is scheduled to begin on October 10 and end on October 16.
