TennisSection previews the 2022 US Open as Matteo Berrettini takes on Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the Round of 16 on Sunday, September 4th, 2022.
Will Matteo Berrettini get the win? Will Alejandro Davidovich Fokina pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have the favorite in his quarter to move through to the semis taking on a talented challenge. Who will triumph and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2022 US Open?
Matteo Berrettini took down Andy Murray in an exciting affair, winning 6-4 6-4 6-7 6-3. While it was a tough match, Berrettini has played some of his best tennis since the grass, and is the clear favorite to move through to the semifinals in his quarter, but of course will first have to get past the likes of Alejandro Davidovich Fokina to have that chance. I really like this matchup for him, and ultimately I can’t see him losing here at the 2022 US Open.
Alejandro Davidovich Fokina took down Daniel Elahi Galan in 4 tricky sets, dismissing the Colombian who pulled the stunner on Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round. If he wants a shot against Matteo Berrettini here, he’s going to have to play very well, and hope Berrettini is off his rocker. I really doubt that scenario is coming into play though, as the Italian looks to stay firm and move through to the quarterfinals of the 2022 US Open.
Matteo Berrettini and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina have met once before, with Alejandro Davidovich Fokina leading the head to head 1-0. Their one meeting came on the clay in Monte-Carlo last season, and isn’t particularly relevant to me. Berrettini is a much better player on these quicker courts, and I expect his serve to keep on firing and for him to really lay the Spaniard out from the ground as well as he aims to book his place in the last eight at the 2022 US Open.
