Frances Tiafoe and Yasutaka Uchiyama will take on each other in the round of 32 of the 2022 ATP Japan Open on Monday, October 3.
Frances Tiafoe has had a pair of successful campaigns, so he must be feeling confident right now. He made his mark in the Laver Cup and helped Team World win their first championship after making his first semifinal appearance in a grand slam and defeating Carlos Alcaraz in two sets earlier this month at the US Open. The young American’s run in New York (SF) assisted in his top-20 debut, but now the difficulty begins. He has suffered with consistency throughout his career and will need to find a solution and continue to provide results if he wants to remain in the top-20 group.
When Yasutaka Uchiyama concluded the year with 44 victories and qualified for his second quarterfinal on the main tour right here in Tokyo by defeating Benoit Paire and Radu Albot, he had the best season of his career. At the end of that season, he reached his career-high rating of #78, and it looked like he would continue to rise from there in 2020. He only won five matches in 2020, 12 out of 38 matches in 2021, and is currently rated #311 in the world as a result of the tour being suspended in 2020 owing to the COVID outbreak and the lack of the Asian swing.
Frances Tiafoe and Yasutaka Uchiyama are scheduled to face each other in the round of 32 of the 2022 ATP Japan Open on Monday, October 3 The tournament is scheduled to begin on October 3 and end on October 9.
