TennisSection previews the 2022 Metz Open as Aslan Karatsev takes on Lorenzo Sonego in the Round of 32 on Monday, September 19th, 2022.
Will Aslan Karatsev get the win? Will Lorenzo Sonego pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have two big hitters facing off. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Metz Open?
Aslan Karatsev hasn’t been having the best time lately, having really fallen off from him level in early 2021, and even early 2022. While that may just be a consequence of his generally spotty history on the tour and his aggressive gamestyle, he’s still done well enough to remain inside the top 40 players on tour. Lorenzo Sonego is a great chance for him to catch some momentum as he looks to move on to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Metz Open.
Lorenzo Sonego has also had quite the rough patch since his seemingly very high level in Rome last season, and this match will present quite a few challenges for him. I don’t love his game on a surface like this, and against Karatsev’s serving and first-strike tennis, it’ll be a tough go of things for the Italian if he wants a shot at the last 16 here at the 2022 Metz Open.
Aslan Karatsev and Lorenzo Sonego have met three times before, with Aslan Karatsev leading the head to head 3-0. To further backup Karatsev’s chances here, the head to head will really fuel his confidence. While they played some 3 setters, ultimately, the matchup for Sonego just really isn’t favorable here as Karatsev is looking for some momentum to kick off a comeback to his top gear at the 2022 Metz Open.
