TennisSection previews the 2022 Atlanta Open as Reilly Opelka takes on Ilya Ivashka in the Round of 16 on Wednesday, July 27th, 2022.
Will Reilly Opelka get the win? Will Ilya Ivashka pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a rising American facing a veteran of the ATP Tour. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open?
Reilly Opelka hasn’t had the best season so far, but his time is coming up as the North American swing heads underway. Ilya Ivashka is no easy first round opponent, but Opelka will be looking confident as he returns to the hard courts. Ivashka isn’t in the best form himself, but I most certainly expect a battle between these two anyhow as they clash for a quarterfinal spot at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
Ilya Ivashka has his work cut out for him here as he faces top seed Reilly Opelka in the Round of 16. He got a tough win against a relatively unknown opponent, so to take on Opelka won’t be easy. But Ivashka knows what he’s doing on a hard court and it will most certainly be a hard fought contest. In order to grab the win, he’ll need to focus on playing aggressively, and making sure Opelka can’t get any momentum with that booming serve. Let’s see what he can do as the two fight for a place in the final eight of the 2022 Atlanta Open.
Reilly Opelka and Ilya Ivashka have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. The two have never faced off before, and I don’t expect either player to cruise. I think Opelka is simply in better form and will really feel the hard courts well around this time of year, but I expect Ivashka to do his part and fight hard as the two clash for a spot in the quarterfinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
