TennisSection previews the 2022 Hamburg Open as Diego Schwartzman takes on Emil Ruusuvuori in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, July 19th, 2022.
Will Diego Schwartzman get the win? Will Emil Ruusuvuori pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have one of the strongest clay courters on the ATP Tour taking on a promising talent. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Hamburg Open?
Diego Schwartzman suffered a very unfortunate loss to PCB at the Bastad Open 6-0 6-1, but thankfully for him, Emil Ruusuvuori also lost in the first round of the same tournament. With Scwhartzman’s clay court prowess and mental toughness, I expect him to fight back hard and make a showing in the first round here. He doesn’t have an easy opponent ahead, but I expect him to take him down and move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Hamburg Open.
Emil Ruusuvuori suffered a loss to Dominic Thiem in Bastad, which, on paper looks like a very excusable loss, that was Thiem’s first match win on the ATP Tour in over 430 days. Ruusuvuori has a big game, exactly the kind of thing that can trouble Diego Schwartzman, but Schwartzman is an incredible mover, and with the clay on his side, I expect him to counter the advances of Emil and book his place in the last 16 at the 2022 Hamburg Open.
Diego Schwartzman and Emil Ruusuvuori have met once before, with Diego Schwartzman leading the head to head 1-0.Their one meeting came in Indian Wells this year, with Schwartzman taking him out in 3 sets. Indian Wells is a slow surface, but most certainly a better one for Ruusuvuori. Schwartzman will take full advantage of the surface as he aims to nullify the power of Ruusuvuori and book himself a place in the next round at the 2022 Hamburg Open.
