TennisSection previews the 2022 Melbourne Open as Maxime Cressy takes on Jaume Munar in the Quarter-Finals on Friday, January 7th, 2021.
Will Jaume Munar get another good win under his belt as he aims to make his way to the Semi-Finals of a hard court tournament? Will Maxime Cressy use the momentum gained in his big upset win in the second round? Both players did not expect to come this far this weel, so it will be interesting to see who makes their way to the Semi-Finals of the 2022 Melbourne Open?
Jaume Munar is yet to lose a set here at the 2022 Melbourne Open beating the likes of Kevin Anderson and Henri Laaksonen to get himself into the Quarter-Finals. Jaume was not expected to get this far here in Melbourne just because he is mainly a clay court player, but he is now in a good spot to get into the Semi-Finals here and get his 2022 season off to a strong start. However, the Spaniard will need to ensure that he does not take his opponent in Maxime Cressy too lightly.
Maxime Cressy put on a solid comeback win against the heavy favorite for that match, Reilly Opelka, coming back from a set down to take the win in 3 sets. Maxime showed us resilience in that match as he did not believe he was ever down and out. This is good for his confidence, but he should also be aware of the fact that Opelka’s serve was not firing at its best during the match and he was a bit rusty. Therefore, he cannot expect another easy ride as he now meets Jaume Munar at the 2022 Melbourne Open.
Maxime Cressy and Jaume Munar have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Although Maxime beat Reilly Opelka coming back from a set down, Opelka was rusty and Munar has played tougher opponents all tournament. If this was on clay it would be Munar in straight sets, but as we are on hard courts, I will give Cressy 1 set at the 2022 Melbourne Open.
