2022 DALLAS OPEN MAIN DRAW COMPETITION CONTINUES

Second Round Singles Matches Begin Wednesday

 

DALLAS, Feb. 8, 2022 – The first round of the main draw for the 2022 Dallas Open continued Tuesday at the Styslinger/Altec Tennis Complex on the campus of SMU. Only two matches remain to complete the first round of the singles draw, with second round matches beginning on Wednesday.

 

No. 7 seed Marcos Giron defeated Tennys Sandgren in the first match of the day in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. It was Giron’s first win over Sandgren in three career meetings. Giron will now face Liam Broady in the second round, since the 28-year-old Brit defeated Germany’s Peter Gojowczyk in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4 in a match that lasted only 58 minutes. Broady landed 42-of-53 first serves, which led to winning 74 percent of his first serve points.

 

Jordan Thompson defeated Feliciano Lopez, 7-5, 6-3. Thompson saved all three of the break points he faced, and he’s now beaten Lopez in each of their three meetings.

 

Austrian qualifier Jurij Rodionov beat No. 6 seed Maxime Cressy, 7-6(3), 4-6, 6-1 in a match that lasted two hours and 13 minutes. Rodionov won a back-and-forth battle with an impressive third set. Cressy had 20 aces in the match, snapping his eight-match winning streak in ATP round one matches.

 

German qualifier Cedrik-Marcel Stebe defeated American Denis Kudla, 7-6(7), 3-6, 6-3. Stebe won 88 percent (30/34) of his first serve points, including 15 aces. Each player saved five-of-eight break points in the match.

 

Wildcard and American Jack Sock defeated Germany’s Oscar Otte, 6-4, 6-4. Sock won 87 percent (33/38) of his first serve points and will take on No. 1 seed Taylor Fritz in the second round.

 

SMU senior Caleb Chakravarthi made his ATP Tour debut this evening, dropping the match against Canadian qualifier Vasek Pospisil, 6-1, 6-0 in 57 minutes. Pospisil won 88 percent (21/24) of his first serve points, including seven aces.

 

In the final match of the evening, Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka defeated USA’s Mitchell Krueger in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. Nishoka will play the winner of Wednesday’s noon match between Adrian Mannarino and Steve Johnson.

 

Doubles Draw Update
