Indian Wells 2022: Lorenzo Musetti Vs Reilly Opelka Match Prediction, Head-To-Head, Preview And Livestream

In the second round of the BNP Paribas Open 2022, Reilly Opelka and Lorenzo Musetti will compete. They are scheduled to compete on Sunday at 1:50 a.m on STADIUM 3.

Musetti has been inconsistent this year, despite being one of the tour’s rising stars. He started the season with a three-match losing streak until reaching the quarterfinals in Pune. The 20-year-old followed that up with a run to the quarterfinals in Rotterdam. He then went on to lose to Novak Djokovic in Dubai after that. However, after defeating Gombos (6-7(3) 6-2 6-4) in the Rubber 5 on the 5th of March, Musetti began his run at Indian Wells by defeating Marcos Giron in the first round.

Opelka, who is ranked 17th in the world, will begin his season at Indian Wells knowing that he is in the kind of form that may see him go far into the draw. At the very least, he’s progressed further than his previous best of the third round at this competition. He claimed the ATP 250 event in Dallas and then advanced to the final at Delray Beach, defeating John Isner, Adrian Mannarino, and Jenson Brooksby in the process. As of now, the 24-year-old is slated to begin his Indian Wells 2022 campaign against Musetti.
