Alex Molcan vs Federico Coria head to head
The pair have never played together. It is the first game between the 24-year-old Slovak and the Argentine, who is six years his senior.
Molcan defeats the Fifth Seed
Molcan, who finished second in Marrakech last month, has made it into the last eight in Lyon without dropping a set.
He began his campaign with a match against wildcard Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, who was playing his penultimate tournament as a pro before finally giving up his racquet after next week’s French Open.
That earned him a second-round match against number five seed Karen Khachanov, one of the men currently playing under the neutral flag.
The first set was dominated by serve up to the point where Molcan Khachanov broke. Another break and he took the first set.
When Khachanov dropped serve midway through the second set, it looked like the match was about to be over. However, he managed to earn a break of his own to put it in the tiebreak. However, Molcan proved to be the stronger player that day and was able to claim his place in the quarterfinals.
Coria disturbs Carreno Busta
Like Molcan, Coria achieved his best recent result in Marrakech, where he reached the semi-finals before losing to eventual winner David Goffin.
He started his campaign in Lyon with a match against the German Daniel Altmaier and defeated the world number 54. in three sentences.
In doing so, he faced world No. 2 and No. 17 Pablo Carreno-Busta of Spain, the youngest runners-up in Barcelona.
The serve dominated the first set to the extent that only one break point was created on either side of the net by the 12th setth Game. At this point, Carreno-Busta, who remained on set, offered Coria an opportunity which he gratefully accepted.
The Spaniard recovered by breaking Coria in the opening game of the second set. But he couldn’t hold his advantage and was broken alternately and then again.
That gave Coria a chance to serve for the match, which he didn’t turn down.
Molcan v Coria prediction and tip
Although both men upset the seed in the second round, Molcan will start as a favorite due to his higher placement and better recent form on clay.
The ATP Lyon Open 2022 will take place from May 16th to 21st. You can watch and bet on these games here. Get your latest premium tennis predictions here.
