Rio Open 2022: Fabio Fognini vs. Federico Coria Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Rio Open as Fabio Fognini takes on Federico Coria in the quarterfinals on Saturday, February 19th, 2022.

Will Fabio Fognini get the win? Will Federico Coria pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a tight matchup between the in form Italian veteran and a Argentine clay court specialist. Who will move on to the semifinals at the 2022 Rio Open?

Fabio Fognini got a excellent win over PCB, pulling off the upset in 3 tight sets, just clinching it out for only his 2nd career meeting against him out of 9 meetings, having won the last two now. He now looks ahead to yet another tough matchup, but he can ease up since he’s now the favorite especially considering what he did last round. It will be tough as Coria likes the clay, but Fognini will likely pull it off in the end to make the semifinals of the 2022 Rio Open.

Federico Coria got a hard-fought win over Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco to set up yet another meeting with a veteran on the ATP Tour. Fognini will be much tougher though, and considering Coria could barely defeat Verdasco, I don’t see him beating Fognini. Still, Fabio Fognini is not particularly consistent, and we know how much Coria likes his clay. Therefore I still expect a close match, Fognini though is just on another level from him and will take this one to book himself a spot in the final four at the 2022 Rio Open.

Fabio Fognini and Federico Coria have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s a fascinating matchup, Coria is a classic clay courter, he’s got the grunt, he’s got the topspin and consistency, but that’s not enough to take out Fognini. If the ball sits up for him, he’ll crush it. You need weapons to take him out, so the matchup just works much better for the Italian who is aiming to show his historical brilliance on the surface with yet another career semifinal which he aims to achieve at the 2022 Rio Open.
