Who is Francisco Cerundolo? Everything you need to know about Andy Murray's 2022 US Open opponent

Francisco Cerundolo will take on the popular Brit Andy Murray on Monday in the first round of the 2022 US Open.

The Argentine player entered the attention of tennis casuals earlier this season when he faced Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in the summer, and he takes on another of tennis' biggest names this week.

But who is Francisco Cerundolo? Here is everything you need to know about the Argentinian tennis star.

Who is Francisco Cerundolo?

Francisco Cerundolo has been in the form of his career over the course of the last twelve months, climbing his way to No.27 in the World Rankings, a career-high for the 24-year-old Argentine.

Cerundolo went one better than his Buenos Aires 2021 final defeat to fellow countryman Diego Schwartzman earlier this year, beating Sebastian Baez in straight sets in the final of the Bastad tournament in Sweden to take his first-ever career title.

The 24-year-old was beaten in straight sets by Brazilian Thiago Monteiro at the French Open earlier this year (6-3, 6-4, 6-3) and struggled to make an impression against the legendary Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon earlier in the summer, so will hope to go well at the US Open on Monday.

British tennis fans will be able to watch the 2022 US Open Grand Slam via Amazon Prime Video, with the streaming platform serving as the UK's exclusive broadcaster this summer.
