Gael Monfils is coming into the match after a dominating straight-sets victory over Alexander Bublik in the second round of the Australian Open 2022. At the previous attempt in the tournament in 2021, the Frenchman lost to Emil Ruusuvuori. The Frenchman then reached the second round of the French Open 2021 too, eventually losing to Mikael Ymer. The veteran was last seen at the ATP-500  Adelaide International 1 2022 as he went on to win the tournament, making a strong start to the season despite his injury struggles over the past couple of years.

Gael Monfils has had an excellent resurgence in recent times. The seasoned Frenchman would be the favourite going into the class fresh off a first title of the new year and a comprehensive victory in the new round. The World No.31 would look to make it further into the tournament with a win in this match. Meanwhile, despite being the underdog, Garin shouldn’t be underestimated as he has a dogged mentality, as shown in his first round win.
