TennisSection previews the 2022 Metz Open as Lorenzo Sonego takes on Sebastian Korda in the quarterfinals on Friday, September 23rd, 2022.
Will Lorenzo Sonego get the win? Will Sebastian Korda pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where two young and talented opponents clash. Who will triumph and move through to the semifinals at the 2022 Metz Open?
Lorenzo Sonego took down Gilles Simon in a tight straight setter to set up a much tougher meeting coming up against Sebastian Korda. While he may be ranked higher, Korda is a far better hard court player, let alone on a quick indoor hard court like here in Metz. Korda has all the weapons to handle any tactic Sonego might bring to the court come Friday here at the 2022 Metz Open.
Sebastian Korda took down Lorenzo Musetti fairly easily, with a tight 2nd set needed to close it out. It’s a big win for the American, and I only expect him to go further here as he looks to take down Lorenzo Sonego for a place in the last four. If he wants to win this one, all he needs to do is maintain his current level, his brilliant attacking tennis will carry him to victory and into the semifinals of the 2022 Metz Open.
Lorenzo Sonego and Sebastian Korda have met 3 times before, with Lorenzo Sonego leading the head to head 2-1. In a really odd head to head in which Sonego won both their hard court meetings yet lost their sole clay court match, Korda will be looking to turn the tide here. Neither player is in particularly great form, but Korda has certainly gotten more notable wins of the two in the last months, and I expect him to do so again as he looks to move through to the final four at the 2022 Metz Open.
