TennisSection previews the 2022 Pune Open as Jiri Vesely takes on Bernabe Zapata Miralles in the Round of 16 on Thursday, February 3nd, 2021.
Will Jiri Vesely get the win? Will Bernabe Zapata Miralles pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a tightly contested match-up with two players who can pull off a very high level at their best. Who will move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Pune Open?
Jiri Vesely hasn’t been playing too bad lately, being able to push a couple higher level players and get a few wins along the way. Ultimately though, he has been struggling, playing many challengers and struggling to win most of his matches. He’s ranked at 80 in the world anyhow, and has a great shot at a 250 level win against Bernabe Zapata Miralles, a player who has had even less success than him as of late, but who did upset a strong player in his first round match. Let’s see if Vesely can pull this one out and advance to the quarterfinals here at the 2022 Pune Open.
Bernabe Zapata Miralles upset Dennis Novak in the first round, beating him pretty easily to set up a meeting with 4th seed Jiri Vesely. In order to take him out, he will have to focus on playing aggressively, if he tries to wear Vesely down, I think Vesely will pick his moments better and prevail due to experience. Neither player is particularly consistent, so I am expecting a 3 set match where Vesely will likely pull it out in the end to progress to the final 8 of the 2022 Pune Open.
Jiri Vesely and Bernabe Zapata Miralles have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Neither player plays too much tennis, trying to get into the bigger events as much as possible, but mostly playing at the challenger level to achieve a higher level in tour-level matches. Vesely has had better results lately, as is indicative of his ranking. I expect him to use the experience he has to figure out Bernabe Zapata Miralles and grab the win to move on here at the 2022 Pune Open.
