Frances Tiafoe vs Wu Yibing – Match Predictions

As these players go toe-to-toe with each other for the first time, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Frances Tiafoe to Cover -5.5 Games

We would like to point out that Wu Yibing hasn’t enjoyed his best form ahead of this tournament. The Chinese player is coming into this match on the back of three consecutive losses; he also lost five of his last six matches. In contrast, Frances Tiafoe won the Stuttgart Open title on this surface just two weeks ago; he has five wins in six matches ahead of this competition. Taking both players’ recent form into account, we believe that Frances Tiafoe will win this match comfortably enough to cover -5.5 games.

Over 37.5 Total Games

At 37.5, the over/under line seems a bit low, especially considering this is a best-of-three tournament. It may interest you to know that this match could end in straight sets, and still go above this line. Moreover, while we expect Tiafoe to win, it’s fair to point out that he surrendered at least one set in three of his last five matches. Keeping in mind that seven of Tiafoe’s last eight singles matches went above the projected total, we are taking the over 37.5 games option.
