THE PREDICTION

This will be a very interesting match between two of the USA’s next generation with the head-to-head record so far finely poised at 2-1 to Taylor Fritz, though Reilly Opelka won their last encounter. Both players featured at last week’s St. Petersburg Open, with the 6”11 Opelka faring the far better as he reached the quarter-finals and beat the reigning champion Daniil Medvedev in the process. Fritz, on the other hand, lost a combative three-set first round match to Cameron Norrie and has been underwhelming as the world number 29 since the restart of the season. Considering he was the last player to win this fixture and his better recent form, Opelka looks good for the victory here in what should be a tight match.
