Taylor Fritz vs. Alexei Popyrin: Preview
Fritz has had a successful season so far, winning titles at Indian Wells and Eastbourne and recording 29 wins from 40 games. When the American and Rafael Nadal met in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, the American had won eight matches in a row. Despite leading the Spaniard to a set by two, he lost in five sets. This will be the 24-year-old’s first appearance since that devastating defeat.
Although Alexei Popyrin has had respectable victories on the Challenger circuit, he has yet to establish himself on the main tour this year. He won the championship at the Bordeaux Challenger while advancing to the semifinals at the Ilkley Challenger. After early eliminations at the Wimbledon Championships, Nordea Open and Atlanta Open, the Australian took part in the Citi Open. After losing the first set of his opening round match against Wu Tung-lin of Taiwan, he advanced to the second round.
Fritz and Popyrin have never faced each other.
Taylor Fritz vs Alexei Popyrin: Prediction
Fritz is the overwhelming favorite to win this match. The American has had a successful season so far and a solid win rate on hard courts. Fritz complements his reliable serve with clean groundstrokes. He clocks the ball exceptionally well on either wing and has streamlined his game this season.
The Australian likes to tread carefully and start over. Thanks to his excellent footwork, he can gallop across the court and use his powerful forehand. He drives consistently around 130 mph, which is strong. Fritz cannot afford to be complacent when facing Popyrin. But if he plays anywhere near as well he should trump the young Australian.
Forecast: Fritz wins in straight sets.
