BIG NEWS
Opelka Comes From Behind For First River Oaks Win
Despite losing the first set, No. 3 seed Reilly Opelka picked up his first career win at River Oaks after defeating fellow American Mitchell Krueger 3-6, 6-2, 6-4. Opelka extended his winning streak in Texas to five matches after winning his third career title in Dallas in February.
Three Former Champions Continue Quest For Another Title Thursday
Former champions Cristian Garin (2019), Steve Johnson (2018, 2017) and John Isner (2013) continue their journey for a repeat championship at River Oaks on Thursday. The defending champion Garin faces Australian Jordan Thompson not before 2 pm while Johnson and the No. 4 seed Isner go head-to-head in the last match of the night on Stadium Court. Johnson defeated Isner in the quarterfinals en route to his second consecutive title at River Oaks in 2018.

TIDBITS
Reilly Opelka is currently 5-0 in matches played in Texas this season.
– 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.
– Houston-born Gijs Brouwer (No. 361 ranking), 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.
