HOUSTON/STARNBERG, April 7, 2022
Despite losing the first set, No. 3 seed Reilly Opelka picked up his first career win at the Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship at River Oaks, after defeating fellow US-American Mitchell Krueger 3-6, 6-2, 6-4. Opelka extended his winning streak in Texas to five matches after claiming his third career title in Dallas in February.
* Reilly Opelka is currently 5-0 in matches played in Texas this season.
* US-American Michael Mmoh became the first US Clay lucky loser to reach the quarterfinals in the Open Era. Mmoh, who replaced No. 1 seed Casper Ruud after he withdrew (wisdom tooth), is only the fifth lucky loser in tournament history to win a match.
* Nick Kyrgios made his second River Oaks quarterfinals. It is his second time reaching the final eight in his last three events.
* World No. 361 and Houston-born Gijs Brouwer, who is representing the Netherlands, became the lowest-ranked quarterfinalist on the ATP Tour in 2022. He is competing in his first-ever ATP Tour main draw.
