TennisSection previews the 2022 Metz Open as David Goffin takes on Simon in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, September 20th, 2022.
Will David Goffin get the win? Will Simon pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have the Belgian looking to find his way back to form as the Frenchman draws his career to a close. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Metz Open?
David Goffin has had some encouraging moments this season, winning a title and playing some incredible matches, almost taking out Nadal in Madrid and reaching the quarterfinals where he lost out to Norrie in an epic 5 setter. But after those events, his level seemingly dropped once more, so it’s difficult to judge exactly how well he’ll be able to play here. Based on the levels of both players though, I think Goffin will be able to take down Simon to book his spot in the Round of 16 at the 2022 Metz Open.
Gilles Simon is looking to end his career quite soon, and this match against David Goffin won’t make it any easier to grab a couple wins before he does so. In order to win this match, Simon will have to draw on not only the crowd, but on the inconsistency of Goffin lately, and hope to really extend the rallies but not allow Goffin to attack him and pull him off the court. Let’s see if he has what it takes to pull this upset off here at the 2022 Metz Open.
David Goffin and Simon have met five times before, with David Goffin leading the head to head 3-2. Simon had the better of Goffin earlier in his career, but as the years went by and Goffin’s rise continued, the Belgian dispatched of Simon quite easily in their last 2 encounters. While I don’t expect a similar result in this match, I still expect for Goffin to pull this one out at the 2022 Metz Open.
