Emil Ruusuvuori vs Vit Kopriva : Preview
Emil Ruusuvuori started his 2022 season on a good note with a semi-final finish at the ATP Melbourne Summer Set 1, where he lost to eventual champion Rafael Nadal. Although he lost in the first round of the Australian Open to 9th seed Felix Auger Aliassime, he managed to put up a fight and managed to stretch the match to the distance in a five-set thriller.
After making his debut in the ATP circuit last year, Vit Kopriva started his season by reaching the quarter-finals of the Bendigo Challenger tournament. He didn’t play in the main draw of the Australian Open, after he couldn’t get past the qualifying rounds.
Both the players can be tough to play against when they are on top of their game, and have already picked up a win against players ranked in the top-10. Ruusuvuori won against Alexander Zverev, whereas Kopriva won against Denis Shapovalov last year.
