Andrey Rublev and Daniel Evans are scheduled to face one another in the round of 32 of the 2022 Canadian Open on Thursday, August 11.
Daniel Evans, 32, began his Canadian Open campaign in Montreal by defeating Filip Krajinovic 6-2, 1-6, 6-0. The British player, who is now ranked World No. 39, has had a good start to the US Open swing and now looks to build on it. His most recent tournament was in Washington, where he advanced to the quarterfinals before losing to eventual champion Yoshihito Nishioka. This run, along with a Challenger title in Nottingham and a semifinal appearance in the Sydney International, is one of his season’s highlights. Daniel had lost early in other tournaments, which explains his 16-17 record this season. For what it’s worth, Evans prefers hard courts over any other surface.
Andrey Rublev, world No. 8, is 35-12 and has a bye into round two of this year’s Canadian Open. His most recent tournament was in Washington, where he reached the semifinals before falling to Nishioka in straight sets. However, that single defeat does not detract from Andrey’s otherwise spectacular year. The 24-year-old Russian won the Open 13, Dubai Tennis Championships, and Serbia Open, as well as reaching the finals of several major tournaments such as the French Open, Indian Wells Masters, and Madrid Open. He also has a strong record against the tour’s elite players, making him even more dangerous.
The 2022 edition of the Canadian Open is set to begin from August 8 and go on until August 15. The men’s final is scheduled to be on August 15 and the women’s one is set to be held on August 14. There will be six rounds of play in the main draw excluding the qualifiers.
