Wimbledon 2024 is marching on steadily, and the big names are heading closer to week two with each passing round. As for my tennis predictions today, I’ve covered Alcaraz vs Tiafoe in the men’s singles. It should be a great game, and I’ve got my tips below.

Our favourite Carlos Alcaraz vs Frances Tiafoe predictions

Seed number 3, Carlos Alcaraz, has set up a third-round clash against the 29th seed, Frances Tiafoe. Interestingly, these guys are tied at 1-1 in the head-to-head department, and their last Grand Slam encounter was a thriller. However, this is the first time they’ve met on grass, and I’ve given my two cents for this match below:

Tiafoe to win a set @ 5/4 (2.25)

Tiafoe has looked more confident on the grass at Wimbledon this year. Furthermore, he took Alcaraz to five sets in their New York meeting back in 2022. So he will no doubt have the belief he can take a set, and I think he will if he serves well. 

Over 33.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)

Assuming Tiafoe takes a set from the Spaniard, I see no reason this match cannot go beyond the 33.5 games mark. I say this because Alcaraz will no doubt raise his game in an effort to take down the American in this match. But if he loses a set, this market has a very good chance.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Frances Tiafoe odds

As per the latest odds, Alcaraz has a 94.10% chance of winning this match while Tiafoe has just an 11.10% probability.

Prepare for flashy tennis in Alcaraz vs Tiafoe

You’ve got my predictions lined up, so now, let’s switch the focus to a couple of quick previews.

Carlos Alcaraz preview

As the defending champion, Carlos Alcaraz is obviously expected to take out Tiafoe in this third-round battle. But he has lost to Tiafoe in the past, and their one and only Grand Slam meeting resulted in a thrilling five-set contest. Then again, Alcaraz usually raises his level significantly once he moves deeper into these tournaments.

Frances Tiafoe preview

Tiafoe fought hard to come through his first-round match at Wimbledon 2024. He went the distance and overcame a two-set deficit before taking out Coric more convincingly in his second-round match. In that game, he served well, attacked well with his forehand, and showed us why he is still one of the top players in the world.

Alcaraz vs Tiafoe head to head

As it stands, Alcaraz has one win over Tiafoe while the American has one win against the current world number three. This puts the head-to-head records at 1-1, and we’ve got yet another Grand Slam contest to look forward to between these two. And while I expect Alcaraz to move to 2-1 against Tiafoe when all is said and done, I don’t think it will be a walk in the park.
