Day 4 at the ATP event in Santiago will see the conclusion of the round of 16, with the most anticipated match being between two Chileans: Christian Garin vs Alejandro Tabilo. As has been the norm all week, there are no clear favorites and tight, well-contested matches are expected this Thursday.

ATP Santiago Day 4 Predictions

Pedro Martinez vs Jaume Munar

Head-to-head: Martinez 3-1 Munar

Both players have been struggling this season, in fact neither has yet managed to string consecutive wins in 2022 yet. Although Martinez does have the edge in head-to-head, Munar is generally the better, more solid player and will be slightly favored to prevail here in what is expected to be a very long, grueling match, full of long, exciting rallies.

Thiago Seyboth Wild vs Yannick Hanfmann

Head-to-head: Hanfmann 1-1 Wild

Seyboth Wild has struggled a lot since winning the title at this very venue in 2020 as a 19-year-old and Hanfmann rightfully starts as a favorite here. However, Seyboth Wild clearly enjoys playing in this court and will be desperate to have a good week knowing that his ranking rides on it as the points of his 2020 title will drop: that might just inspire him to pull through here.

Miomir Kecmanovic vs Matheus Pucinelli de Almeida

Head-to-head: first meeting

Almeida had an amazing performance in the first round against Holger Rune, scoring an impressive upset and showing signs that he might become an ATP mainstay in the future. If he keeps his form up, he’ll certain trouble Kecmanovic, but at this stage the Serb will probably have a bit too much experience for the young Brazilian.

Cristian Garin vs Alejandro Tabilo

Head-to-head: Garin 1-0 Tabilo

Last year in Santiago, Garin easily beat Tabilo en route to his sixth (and last to date) ATP title (all on clay), but things are very different now: Tabilo has improved a lot and Garin didn’t progress quite as much as expected and has been struggling lately, in fact he lost his opening matches at both Cordoba and Rio. Still, he’ll be desperate to defend his title from last year and might still have the edge on his compatriot at this stage.
Prediction: Garin in 3
