Frances Tiafoe vs Marton Fucsovics – Match Predictions

Frances Tiafoe to Win

The Hungarian is considered the more dangerous competitor on grass due to his stronger track record on this surface. However, Frances Tiafoe has shown newfound consistency at the top level and has been delivering consistent results over the past ten months. Therefore, Tiafoe is the slight favourite heading into this semifinal clash. He also outclassed Fucsovics in their last meeting and will fancy his chances against a rival who has played five matches in Stuttgart to the two ties he has been on the court. Given fitness concerns and better recent form, we are backing Tiafoe to triumph against Fucsovics and avenge the defeat of compatriot Taylor Fritz.

Over 21.5 Games

Tiafoe overcame the challenge of Jiri Lehecka in 22 games and needed 34 games to overcome the challenge of Lorenzo Musetti. Fucsovics has also been found wanting in matches against Denis Shapovalov and Yibing Wu, needing three sets 58 games to set a date with Fritz. Against the second-seed American, the match came to a conclusion in his favour in 22 games. With both players needing at least 22 games to get over their recent rivals, we are backing a similar long-drawn affair that sees Over 21.5 Games to give a result.

Frances Tiafoe vs Marton Fucsovics Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Stuttgart Open.

Frances Tiafoe

Tiafoe had a challenging first set in the quarterfinal match against Lorenzo Musetti. However, he managed to recover and win the match in three sets, with a score of 6-7, 7-6, 6-2. This is a significant achievement for Tiafoe, as it is his best performance on grass, a surface where he has not had much success in the past. Before arriving in Stuttgart, he had lost both of his previous quarterfinal matches on grass and had only won 22 matches on this surface throughout his career.

Marton Fucsovics

In his recent match at ATP Stuttgart, he won in straight sets against second seed Taylor Fritz, with a score of 6-4, 7-5. This victory is his best result of the season so far. In the past six months, he had lost all four matches against top-10 players. However, in this match against Fritz, Fucsovics improved significantly and faced only one breakpoint. This is a big step forward considering his struggles with serving this season, where he had given his opponents over 150 chances to break his serve in previous matches.
