Frances Tiafoe vs Dominic Stricker – Match Predictions
Frances Tiafoe recently entered the top 10 of the ATP rankings for the first time in his career and now is one of the dark horse favorites at Wimbledon.
Frances Tiafoe -3.5
Tiafoe is having a very good season so far and the feeling is that the best is yet to come from him. He cruised past Yibing Wu in the opening round and the draw could not be better for him, as a qualifier is waiting for him in the second round. Stricker is already living a dream and will have a sudden opportunity to make a big splash in the tennis world. However, the Swiss is not ready to beat a player like Tiafoe and the American will handle this by covering the -3.5 games spread.
First set under 10.5 games
Tiafoe will have to make a statement early on that he is here to win and do not let Stricker start believing that he has a chance. Tiafoe has a great first serve and more importantly moves well on the grass. He will put Stricker under pressure early on and the opening set will stay under 10.5 games.
