TennisSection previews the 2023 Dallas Open as Jack Sock takes on Ilya Ivashka in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, February 7, 2023.
Will Jack Sock get the win? Will Ilya Ivashka pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a home favorite taking on a tricky opponent. Who will triumph and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2023 Dallas Open?
Jack Sock hasn’t been playing that much tennis lately, and as it stands I do think he’s one of the most underrated players on the tour. At his best he can produce a seriously high level, and I expect him to do so in this match, despite his fitness issues and lack of match play. Ilya Ivashka also has a high top gear, but he isn’t the most consistent and it’s difficult to predict what we’ll get from him here at the 2023 Dallas Open.
Ilya Ivashka is the favorite coming into this one, but Sock is a good pick to pull an upset here. When he plays, he produces a challenge for his opponent, and it usually doesn’t matter who that is. Especially considering that we’re in America, it’ll be the perfect conditions for Sock who looks to get himself a win this season and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2023 Dallas Open.
Jack Sock and Ilya Ivashka have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s an intriguing matchup, with both players having the ability to redline at any moment, but I will take Sock in these conditions, I think from what he showed last season he still has the ability to crush the ball and to pull off the upset win here at the 2023 Dallas Open.
