Pablo Carreno Busta and Hubert Hurkacz would square off in the men's singles final of the 2022 Canada Open on Monday. The former reached his first ATP Masters 1000 final after beating Daniel Evans. On the other hand, Hurkacz dismissed fourth seed Casper Ruud in the semi-finals, qualifying for his second final at this stage. Here is the statistical preview.
At the Canada Open, Hurkacz claimed a three-set victory against Emil Ruusuvuori in the third round. He then claimed another three-set win to qualify for the quarter-final, beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-7(6), 6-2, 7-6(3). Another formidable victory propelled Hurkacz to the final. In the semi-finals, he came from behind against Ruud, having secured a three-set win (5-7, 6-3, 6-2).
Carreno stunned Matteo Berrettini in straight sets in the second round. The former then thrashed Holger Rune, Jannik Sinner, and Jack Draper in the next three rounds, respectively. Carreno has dropped only one set so far, in the semi-final against Evans.

Carreno Busta is vying to win his seventh ATP title. He is yet to clinch one in the ongoing season. Carreno Busta claimed a couple of titles in 2021 (Hamburg and Marbella: Both on clay). His last title on hard courts came in 2019 (Chengdu). Carreno Busta is set to play his third final of 2022 (Barcelona and ATP Cup).
