Frances Tiafoe vs Vasek Pospisil: Preview

Francis Tiafoe’s confidence would be sky high as he has already executed a monumental upset in the first round at Wimbledon 2021. Tiafoe went past third-seeded and French Open 2021 finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets. Tsitsipas clearly looked out of sorts and Tiafoe grabbed every opportunity presented to score a point.

Tsitsipas scored as many as 15 aces in comparison to Tiafoe’s 7. However, the American national won as many as 70% second serve points in comparison to Tsitsipas’ 50 which proved to be to be the difference in the game. Tiafoe came into Wimbledon after a moral shattering loss at the Eastbourne Open 2021.

The World No. 57 was knocked out in the very first round by Liam Broady in straight sets. However, the way he made a comeback on the grass-court left a lot of tennis experts surprised. On the other hand, Vasek Pospisil also played some top-quality tennis in the first round at Wimbledon.

He thrashed World No. 100 Roberto Carballés Baena in straights sets. Scoring as many as 18 aces, Pospisil showcased sheer dominance on the grass court and gave absolutely no chance to the Spanish of scripting a comeback.

Frances Tiafoe was tremendous in the previous game. He not only saved all seven break points against Tsitsipas but also converted four out of eight break points. However, he would be mindful that he can’t get carried away after winning the first-round against Tsitsipas.

At the same time, it would be fair to say that Pospisil also made life incredibly tough for his opponent in the first round. He has a 19-25 record on grass. All points considered, odds are slightly in the favor of Tiafoe. However, this does promise to be an excellent and nail-biting encounter.

Prediction: Frances Tiafoe to win in 4 tight-sets.
