Fritz vs Tsitsipas: prediction for the Australian Open match
Taylor Fritz goes against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round of the 2022 Australian Open. Who will progress to the quarter-finals of the major? Our prediction is in the article below.
Taylor Fritz has had very difficult opponents at the current tournament, but he has been fantastic and deservedly reached the last 16. This is his best result at the Australian Open so far. In previous matches, the American tennis player defeated Maximilian Marterer (7-6, 6-3, 6-2), Frances Tiafoe (6-4, 6-3, 7-6) and Roberto Bautista Agut (6-0, 3-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3).
Stefanos Tsitsipas has been gaining momentum and improving his performance with every single match. However, he was lucky with the draw and hasn't faced very difficult opponents so far. In the first round match, Tsitsipas closed Mikael Ymer in straight sets (6-2, 6-4, 6-3), then he outplayed a clay court specialist Sebastian Baez (7-6, 6-7, 6-3, 6-4) and defeated Benoit Paire (6-3, 7-5, 6-7, 6-4).
Last year, the Greek athlete reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
Fritz played 3 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
In 4 of Tsitsipas' last 5 matches, more than 9 games were played in the first set.
Fritz is having an amazing start to the tour. He has hit an impressive 56 aces at the current tournament. We believe that the American has a good chance to outplay Tsitsipas, whom he has defeated twice before. We suggest taking a risk and betting on Taylor Fritz in this fixture.
