TennisSection previews the 2022 Kitzbuhel Open as Cristian Garin takes on Federico Coria in the Round of 32 on Monday, July 25th, 2022.
Will Cristian Garin get the win? Will Federico Coria pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have two underrated clay courters coming to a clash. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Kitzbuhel Open?
Cristian Garin had a pretty successful Wimbledon, reaching the quarterfinals for a 2nd consecutive year. Now as he heads back to the clay, he’ll still be in his element as a master of both surfaces. Federico Coria will not be an easy opponent, but as probably one of the top 20 clay courters in the world right now, I expect him to take it in the end as he aims to move through at the 2022 Kitzbuhel Open.
Federico Coria hasn’t had too successful of a season, not really pulling off many notable wins, but certainly still a player who can hold his own on the surface. Cristian Gain will be a very tough opponent for him, but he won’t have zero chance here. He has a very solid game to disrupt the style of Garin and I most certainly expect him to make it a battle as he aims to move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Kitzbuhel Open.
Cristian Garin and Federico Coria have met three times before, with Federico Coria leading the head to head 2-1. All 3 meetings have come on clay, with Coria winning the latter 2, and their only meeting this year in clinical fashion. Garin was having a bit of a rough patch at the time, so I expect the regrouped version of him to fight back and level the playing field at 2-2 with a good win here to book himself a spot in the Round of 16 at the 2022 Kitzbuhel Open.
