Christian Garin remains unstoppable at the ATP in Munich and now aims for the top 10

The national tennis player is having his best moment in Europe. There are already two consecutive quarter-final tournaments. In the quarter-finals, he will meet Alexander Zverev, world number five.

Christian Garin (106th) wins again in Germany and is already among the top eight at the ATP in Munich. A result that allows him to match what he achieved last year in this event and reach two consecutive tournaments, reaching the quarter-finals. From now on, his rival will be Alexander Zverev, world number five.

This match will undoubtedly be a key moment in the season for Garin, who is eager to reach his second consecutive semi-final on the circuit after a complex start to the season, where he was injured and where was unable to shine during the South American tour one of the most historically favorable times of the year.

But all that was left behind. The Chilean is shining in Europe and after reaching the semi-finals in Estoril two weeks ago, he is now repeating his high level in Munich, a tournament he already won in 2019. To achieve this, he will have to beat the one of the best tennis players of the moment. The German has just done semi-finals at the Australian Open and the Miami Open, while last week in Monte Carlo he reached the round of 16.

Currently, the record between the two tennis players is equal, with one victory for each. The last time was at the Masters 1000 in Rome in 2022, where the German beat him in straight sets. Of course, the most memorable memory of the two is undoubtedly their meeting in the quarter-finals of Munich 2019, where the former world number 17 was the one who shook the fist. As already mentioned, in this edition, Garin would end up being champion.

There are also great hopes for the great tennis presented in Germany. During his visit to Bavaria, he beat Koepfer (54th) in the first round and the American Alex Michelsen (70th) in the round of 16. This last duel, played this Thursday and with a result 6-7, 6-2 and 6-1 in favor of the northerner.

The result also allows him to match what was done in 2023 in this same tournament, so he will not lose ATP points for next week. Excellent news, because if we consider what was achieved in Estoril, Gago has already defended the 180 points he reached last season on clay. Very positive figures, if you think that He still has to compete in at least one 250 category event and probably qualifying in Madrid and Rome. . At the moment he is still also in the qualifications of Roland Garros, but this will be defined in the coming weeks, since he is currently six away from entering the main draw of the French Grand Slam.
