Aslan Karatsev vs. Frances Tiafoe: Match Preview

American World No.14 Frances Tiafoe will try to avenge his first-round exit in the Shanghai Masters with a decent performance in the Japan Open. The American star is not having a very good year after the epic run in the 2022 US Open, where he made one of the greatest victories of his career over the Spanish great Rafael Nadal.

He was expected to make a deeper run in this year’s US Open as well, but Ben Shelton had different plans this time. If he can grab the maximum points in the coming tournaments, an appearance in the ATP finals at Turin will be a possible task. Currently ranked at 14, the American 25-year-old will be trying whatever possible to get inside the top 10 rankings in the near future.

The Russian star Aslan Karatsev is not having the best of the years as he has not a big mark in any of the big tournaments this year. He also has a poor record against the Americans in general and his latest loss was against the American youngster Ben Shelton in the US Open. Karatsev also had a first-round exit in the latest tournament in Shanghai and will be trying to get a good result, at least here in Japan.

The 2021 Australian Open semi-finalist Aslan Karatsev never had a convincing game post his dream 2021 first part. The 30-year-old is yet to even go past the third round in any of the other Grand Slam tournaments.

The Big Foe, on the other hand, has had his best season in 2022 and will be trying to get some positive results in the later part of the current season to end it on a higher note. Considering the current form, the first round between these two will be a tight one, though the American has a 2-0 head-to-head advantage.

Prediction: Frances Tiafoe to win in three sets.
