TennisSection previews the 2022 Halle Open as Roberto Bautista Agut takes on Tallon Griekspoor in the Round of 16 on Thursday, June 16th, 2022.
Will Roberto Bautista Agut get the win? Will Tallon Griekspoor pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a very underrated grass court player taking on an improving player. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Halle Open?
Roberto Bautista Agut won easily in his first round match, but did get the benefit of a retirement from his opponent in the 2nd set. Tallon Griekspoor won’t be easy, but with RBA’s expertise and grass court skill, I sincerely doubt that Griekspoor will actually be able to do much to stop him here. RBA can play incredibly aggressive from the line, but has plenty of variety to match the pace of the surface here at the 2022 Halle Open.
Tallon Griekspoor has been a rising player, doing exceptionally well on the challenger circuit last season, now looking to take down Roberto Bautista Agut in what would be quite the upset. If he wants to win, he will have to serve to perfection, not allowing RBA to get into his service games and dictate play. If he can do that, as well as rely on some mistakes on the Spaniard’s side of the net, I think he could pull it off here at the 2022 Halle Open.
Roberto Bautista Agut and Tallon Griekspoor have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Roberto Bautista Agut has a perfect game for the grass, as he can take the ball early and really deal with the low bounces well. I like the Griekspoor game for the turf as well, but RBA has plenty of experience and I don’t expect him to go down easy at all as he looks to move through to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Halle Open.
