The quarterfinals of the 2020 New York Open are here! Who will make it through to the semi-finals?
Reilly Opelka vs. Jason Jung:
Both players have played some incredible tennis to reach this point, especially Jung who beat Kevin Anderson in the first-round. Opelka is playing at home, he has an incredible serve, and for a big guy, he is able to move incredibly quickly around the court. Jung has already gotten further than he ever expected and I believe that he will end up losing this match because of his inexperience.
Pick: Reilly Opelka
Andreas Seppi vs. Jordan Thompson:
Andreas Seppi is beginning his 2020 campaign with yet another quarterfinal of a tournament. Seppi will now meet an opponent who he has already beaten twice this year. However, Thompson has played incredibly well this tournament and I believe he will not lose this time. Both their prior encounters were very tight and it was anyone's game. Expect Thompson to come out and leave it all on the court.
Pick: Jordan Thompson
Kyle Edmund vs. Soonwoo Kwon:
Kyle Edmund has finally found some form again, the Brit has struggled throughout 2019 not achieving the results he wanted. Edmund needs to focus on improving his game, but with what we have seen so far, it is not farfetched to believe he can get back to his normal level in 2020. Soonwoo Kwon has won the match of his lifetime, beating Milos Raonic. After that victory, I believe that Kwon will see a dip in his form as we see many times after someone wins such a big match, and with that I see Edmund using his experience and taking advantage.
Pick: Kyle Edmund
Miomir Kecmanovic vs. Ugo Humbert:
Both of these players have put on a show in New York and both deserve to be in the quarterfinals. But there can only be one winner. Humbert has already won one title this season, and he has been very solid and consistent on hard-courts. Kecmanovic is also a solid player, but when it comes to comparing these two, Humbert is much better and more experienced. Humbert will make it to the semi-finals.
Pick: Ugo Humbert
