Our favourite Taylor Fritz vs Sebastian Baez predictions

Taylor Fritz loves to play indoor tournaments and can make a lot of noise this week in Paris.

Taylor Fritz 2-0 @ 3/5 (1.60)

Fritz could not even ask for a better opponent in the opening round in Paris. He has absolutely dominated Baez in their previous two matches, and there is no way the Argentinian will stand any chance in this match. Baez prefers playing on clay courts, and even though he has been very active on hard this season, the level of play is still not there. Fritz will take control of this match early on and close it in straight sets.

First set under 8.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)

We will go with a little higher odds for this match since we have enough arguments for that. Looking back at the previous two matches between Fritz and Baez, the Argentinian has won a total of five games and has never won more than two in a single set. Fritz will show up ready in Paris and will make a statement with a dominant win not allowing Baez more than a couple of games in the opening set.

Taylor Fritz vs Sebastian Baez odds
