TennisSection previews the 2022 Citi Open as Karen Khachanov takes on Dominik Koepfer in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022.
Will Karen Khachanov get the win? Will Dominik Koepfer pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a very dynamic matchup as two very different players clash. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Citi Open?
Karen Khachanov hasn’t been having too bad of a stretch this season, but he’s really having a hard time against the best players. Fortunately for him, Dominik Koepfer doesn’t quite meet that profile as of yet. On top of that, his consistent lefty game is an advantage for Khachanov, allowing him to rip balls from the back of the court without much of a worry as to what to do on defense. Let’s see what he can do here as he looks to advance to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Citi Open.
Dominik Koepfer needed 3 sets to advance to the Round of 32 coming up against Karen Khachanov. It’ll be a difficult fight ahead of him as he looks to really step it up a notch. Khachanov will be on the offense, and Koepfer will have to do his best to step into the court and not allow himself to be dictated, attempting to disrupt any offensive pattern of play that he can. Let’s see if he can pull off a very challenging win to advance here at the 2022 Citi Open.
Karen Khachanov and Dominik Koepfer have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. As already outlined, this is a pretty good matchup for Khachanov. Generally, any match where he’s not obligated to play on defense for a majority of the time is a good matchup for him, and I don’t see that being the case here. The court is quite slow, and will take away from the already lack of offensive variety the German is going to have. Let’s see what the 7th seed has in store for us as he looks to move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Citi Open.
