The 9th seed, Taylor Fritz, is set to begin his Roland Garros campaign against Michael Mmoh in Paris. But who will take the win and what markets are most appealing? Let’s take a look.
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Mmoh vs Fritz – Match Predictions
There’s always some added spice when two countrymen play each other in the biggest tournaments. And for this first-round match, it’s two Americans who will do battle on the clay. Of course, this match involves Fritz taking on Mmoh. On paper, it might seem like a bit of a mismatch, as Fritz is ranked 8th in the world while Mmoh is 123rd in the world. However, some extra pressure will be on Fritz’s shoulders here to get the job done.
Anyway, you’ll no doubt be hoping to see where to place your wagers for this match. So let me show you the two best markets now.
Fritz to Win 3-0
Like all of our tennis predictions today, the goal is to find valuable wagers for Roland Garros matches. Therefore, based on the odds, there is no point in backing Fritz to simply win. Instead, I feel it’s best to shoot for Fritz to win in straight sets. That’s because Fritz has a much better game than Mmoh on the whole.
Over 28.5 Games
Although I’m confident that Fritz can get the job done in straight sets, I feel Mmoh could make it tight in the opening set or two. As I stressed earlier, there’s always more tension when playing someone from your own country. So Mmoh could take advantage of this and make the match close in the opening sets.
Mmoh vs Fritz Preview
For a better understanding of where each of these guys are at with their tennis, I’ve provided a preview for both here.
Michael Mmoh Preview
At 123 in the world, Michael Mmoh is obviously not a top contender at Roland Garros. Additionally, he doesn’t love the clay, which makes his match against Fritz a huge challenge. And given that Mmoh has been absent from the tour since injuring himself in March, it’s all the more unlikely that he could cause an upset here.
Taylor Fritz Preview
Fritz doesn’t particularly like the clay either, but he’s performed well on it during the 2023 season. He has beaten top guys like Tsitsipas on clay this year, and he looks more comfortable on the surface than he did a few seasons ago. Of course, he’s also one of the top French Open seeds, so all signs point to a Fritz victory.
Mmoh vs Fritz Head to Head
Although these two players have been on the tour for quite a while, they’ve only played each other once. This was back in 2016, and Fritz took a straight-set win in that match. However, we cannot glean too much into this result as the game was played seven years ago on an indoor hard court. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how this game plays out.
