Lorenzo Sonego v Sam Querrey Head to Head

Sonego Hopes to Extend Head-to-Head Lead Over Querrey

In what could be termed a close-to-ideal build-up to launching a fresh bid for his maiden Grand Slam title, Sonego warmed up for the Australian Open with a decent quarter-final finish at the Sydney International.

Starting his news season off on a winning note, the rising Italian star fought past tricky Frenchman Hugo Gaston in three sets to set a last-16 clash with Sebastian Baez of Argentina. Riding high on confidence after the gutsy win over Gaston, the Italian, currently ranked 27th in singles and already with two titles against his name,  came up with a power-packed and clinical showing to cruise to a 6-2, 6-3 victory.

The win saw him draw the indefatigable Russian Aslan Karatsev in the quarter-finals. Down a break early in the opening set, Sonego couldn’t recover as the Russian won it by a runaway 6-2 margin.

Never one to die wondering in the heat of battle, Sonego came out swinging his rapier in the second set and his fightback was duly rewarded as he pocketed the set handsomely to take the match to a decider.

However, he ran out of steam in the final set as Karatsev trounced him 6-2 in the decider to close out a deserving three-set victory.

Setting his sights on the year’s first Grand Slam now, the Italian will open his campaign on Monday against American Sam Querrey. Though still soldiering on in the circuit, Querrey, for all intents and purpose, is past his prime years in singles and the Italian will fancy extending his head-to-head lead over the American to 2-0.

Querrey Eyes Unlikely Upset Against Sonego

A journeyman with 10 career titles to show for his 16 years in the singles circuit, Querrey will launch his new season with an opening-round clash with Lorenzo Sonego at the Australian Open.

Though in the twilight years of his career, the American, currently placed outside the top-100 in singles, is no longer the force he once was in this format. However, though his best years are behind him, Querrey would look to silence doubters and show that he can still pack a mean punch on a good tennis day.

But with the Italian significantly ahead of him in the rankings and 1-0 in the lead on the head-to-head count, Querrey will have to play out of his skins if he is to have any hope of taking down Sonego.

With age not on his side, the best chance for the 34-year-old American would be to trust his gun serve and keep the rallies short.

Sonego v Querrey Prediction and Tip

Sitting comfortably ahead in the rankings currently, Sonego will start as an overwhelming favorite in this opening-round tie. However, Querrey will be fueled by the motivation to progress to the second round of a Grand Slam.
