Will Pablo Carreno Busta get the win? Will Fabio Fognini pull off the upset at the 2022 Rio Open? This will be an interesting one, where a top Spaniard takes on the Italian veteran for a ninth career meeting. Who will move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Rio Open?

Pablo Carreno Busta played quite well down under, losing out to the no. 1 seed here at the 2022 Rio Open in the fourth round. He has a great chance to follow up his good form though as he aims to take down Fabio Fognini. Fognini is definitely all over the place at the moment, but he found his groove in the first round and will not be an easy opponent especially considering PCB will need to adjust to the clay. Let’s see if he can grab the win to book a quarterfinal spot at the 2022 Rio Open.

Fabio Fognini got a great win, showing he still has a top level in him, he definitely has a chance against PCB, you would think Fognini could capitalize on his playstyle, considering Pablo Carreno Busta plays consistently, and Fognini has an arsenal of weapons to counter that playstyle. His head to head is definitely not favorable though making it hard to consider him as the guy to bet on to take this match and move on to the last eight of the 2022 Rio Open.

Pablo Carreno Busta and Fabio Fognini have met eight times before, with Pablo Carreno Busta leading the head to head 7-1. The two have had 8 meetings since 2013, with Fognini only winning their most recent meeting. Many matches went to 3, and it is rather surprising that Fognini didn’t win more. It does however definitely suggest that PCB will continue the pattern as he aims to get past Fognini and move through to the quarterfinals of the 2022 Rio Open.
