2022 US Open: Galan vs Fokina, 3rd Round
Daniel Elahi Galan vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will be at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, USA, on an outdoor hard court.
Daniel Elahi Galan vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will be televised live on the Amazon Prime Video app on Smart TVs.
World number 94 Daniel Elahi Galan is enjoying the best week of his career so far after stunning Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round,
reaching the third round of the US Open for a first time with a five-set marathon match against Jordan Thompson.
The Colombian will set a new career-high ATP world ranking of around 74th no matter the outcome here but he has nothing to lose in this fascinating first meeting with Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
Both players would prefer to face each other on clay but Fokina also played out a five-set thriller to overcome Marton Fucsovics & he should be the favourite here on overall form this season.
The Spaniard is no stranger to a five-set slog so it could be worth a one-off on that option but otherwise back ADF to win at least two sets as the likelier of two capable victors.
