Fritz has so far put together a great season. He made his maiden appearance in the fourth round of a Grand Slam at the Australian Open, when he was defeated by Stefanos Tsitsipas in five sets. He later advanced to the Dallas Open quarterfinals. After that, Fritz lost in the second round of the Mexican Open. He bounced back by winning the Indian Wells Open, the biggest championship of his career. Rafael Nadal’s 20-match winning streak was ended by the American, who upset him in the championship match.

Fritz had to play a shorter clay season due to an injury, and he finished it off by losing in the second round of the French Open. He won Eastbourne International, his second championship of the year, during the grass-court swing. The 24-year-old improved upon his previous Grand Slam showing by making it to Wimbledon’s quarterfinals before losing to Nadal in a nail-biting five-set match. Fritz recently competed at the Citi Open, but the heat and humidity combined with his lack of fitness forced him to leave his match in the third round.

Andy Murray lost in the opening round of the Melbourne Summer Set to begin the year. He showed no signs of being affected by the setback by placing second at the Sydney Tennis Classic the following week. In the second round of the Australian Open, Taro Daniel shocked the British player. Murray then failed to advance past the second round in any of his following five competitions.

The previous World No. 1 then immediately entered the grass-court swing. In his first competition, Murray advanced to the semifinals of a Challenger event. The following week in the Stuttgart Open, he lost to Matteo Berrettini in his second final of the year. The Citi Open was Murray’s most recent tournament. Mikael Ymer sent him packing in the first round itself, winning in three sets.

Despite some unfavorable outcomes, Murray has displayed some great performances this year. Maintaining his level throughout a competition, and occasionally even a match, has proven difficult. The Brit, who continues to be among the best returners on the tour, is capable of neutralizing Fritz’s serve.

Murray’s record this season versus the top 20 players is 2-6. Fritz should be able to repel any threat from the former World No. 1 if he’s totally healthy. But the British player still has a chance to win; he can never be completely written off. Their outcomes indicate that the 24-year-old has the advantage.

Prediction: Fritz to win in 3 sets.
