Taylor Fritz vs.Shintaro Mochizuki Match Predictions

Both players have a strong rally game from the baseline. However, Taylor Fritz has an extremely hard and powerful serve, and his height is an added advantage for his winners. Shintaro will have to play carefully against the defending champion, who will look to replicate the same this year as well. It will be an easy match for the top-seeded player in the tournament. Taylor Fritz will be motivated to win his fourth title of the season as well.
