On Friday, the third round of the 2022 ATP Washington Open will feature First place seed Andrey Rublev playing Maxime Cressy.
With a 6-4, 6-2 victory against Jack Draper, world No. 8 Andrey Rublev is off to a fast start in the Citi Open 2022. With a record of 32-11, the 24-year-old Russian has almost secured his spot in the top 10. The season has been fantastic for the 24-year-old Russian. The three ATP titles he won at Open 13, Dubai Tennis Championships, and Serbia Open are among his career highlights. Rublev also competed in the French Open quarterfinals, demonstrating his incredible ability to perform admirably on any surface. His plans appear to be in line with his US Open preparations. With Holger Rune and Taylor Fritz/Karen Khachanov as his anticipated competitors, the bracket in Washington is essentially wide open for him.
Maxime Cressy, the 13th seed, also had a bye into the second round when the competition began. He overcame seasoned American Jack Sock 4-6, 6-4, 6-0 in his opening encounter. The 25-year-confidence old’s will definitely increase as a result of that victory, who entered the competition following an impressive grass swing. Maxime beat the likes of John Isner and Alexander Bublik to win in Newport after finishing second in Eastbourne. He finished second in the Melbourne 250 earlier in the season, a performance he accomplished as a qualifier. Due to these successes, Cressy has risen to position #32 in the rankings. His record is still 19-16, partly as a result of the terrible clay season he had.
Andrey Rublev and Maxime Cressy will face each other in the third round of the 2022 Citi open on Friday, August 5. The ATP 500 competition is scheduled to start from August 1 and end on August 7 this year.
The 2022 Citi Open will see six rounds of action excluding the qualifiers. These include the round of 64, round of 32, round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final. The tournament is scheduled to commence on August 1 and conclude on August 8 this year.
