TennisSection previews the 2022 French Open as Casper Ruud takes on Lorenzo Sonego in the Round of 32 on Saturday, May 28th, 2022.
Will Casper Ruud get the win? Will Lorenzo Sonego pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have one of the top clay courters in the world taking on a solid clay courter in his own right. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 French Open?
Casper Ruud played a solid match, getting the win over Ruusuvuori, propelling him to the Round of 32 where he’s looking to take down Lorenzo Sonego. Sonego really hasn’t had that good of results lately, so while I do expect Ruud to potentially have a couple of issues, it really should be no problem in the end. Let’s see what the Norwegian can do here at the 2022 French Open as he aims to reach the last 16.
Lorenzo Sonego has a brutal match ahead of him in Casper Ruud, one of the best clay courters on the ATP Tour. If he hopes to win, he really just has to hope that Ruud is having a bad day. It’s definitely a possibility, it’s happened to Ruud in the past and it could happen again. Ruud’s looked pretty solid so far though, so I expect him to take down Sonego and progress here at the 2022 French Open.
Casper Ruud and Lorenzo Sonego have met three times before, with Casper Ruud leading the head to head 3-0. They played once in 2020 and twice in 2021, with Ruud taking all 3 meetings. Sonego plays a pretty consistent game, being able to hit pretty big off each wing, an ideal game for clay. Ruud counters him perfectly though, and I expect nothing but a 4th win over Sonego for the World No. 8 who’s looking for a place in the fourth round and the 2nd week of a slam for the second time in his career at the 2022 French Open.
