Taylor Fritz vs Frances Tiafoe: Preview
Taylor Fritz took out former World No. 1 Andy Murray in the first round of the ongoing Canadian Open to advance further. The American won the match 6-1, 6-3 to make a winning start as he looks to win his second Masters-1000 title of the season having won the Indian Wells Masters earlier this season. Fritz has been a good player on the hardcourts and is one of the home favourites for the 2022 US Open later this month.
Frances Tiafoe had to battle hard and deep to move into the second round. Up against Benjamin Bonzi, Tiafoe won the match 6-7(6), 7-5, 6-3 in a good comeback win. Tiafoe comes to Canada on the back of a semi-final finish in Atlanta followed by a quarter-final run in Washington where he lost to eventual champion Nick Kyrgios. Tiafoe continues to look for his maiden title for the season having reached just 1 final this season but ended up on the losing side against Sebastian Baez in Estoril.
The compatriots have met on 4 occasions on the Tour with Frances winning their first-ever meeting. Since then, all three wins have gone in favour of Taylor who leads the head-to-head 3-1.
Taylor Fritz vs Frances Tiafoe: Prediction
Tiafoe has a career hardcourt record of 127-95 while being 9-7 on the surface this year and having a 20-16 season record coming into the match.

Looking at these numbers and their recent form, Fritz looks like the one heading into the 3rd round.
Prediction: Taylor Fritz to win in three sets.
