Jakub Mensik vs Taylor Fritz prediction and odds: US Open 2023

Jakub Mensik vs Taylor Fritz prediction and odds: US Open 2023

Jakub Mensik, amazingly, has already won five matches to set up this clash with Taylor Fritz. He came through qualifying to challenge the 9th seed in this third-round match. With that said, it could be a one-sided contest in this one, and I’ve shared my tennis predictions today for the upcoming match below.

Our favourite Jakub Mensik vs Taylor Fritz predictions

It’s no surprise to see that Taylor Fritz is the overwhelming favourite to win this match. The Czech qualifier is ranked 206 compared to Fritz’s ranking of 9, which is an enormous difference. And with such a difference, it’s necessary to be more creative with the ATP US Open 2023 predictions for this one to find value. On that note, I’ve found the following two markets that you should consider betting on for this contest:

Fritz to win 3-0 @ 13/20 (1.65)

With the huge difference in level between these two guys, there is no value in simply taking Fritz to win. Therefore, I’ve switched to the set betting markets, and I’m going for Fritz to win 3-0 in this match. These odds are far more competitive, and such an outcome is quite likely.

Fritz -7.5 games handicap @ 11/10 (2.10)

You wouldn’t normally get such an extreme handicap at this stage in the tournament. But again, you wouldn’t usually get a top-10 player taking on a qualifier either. And since Fritz has lost just 10 games in 6 sets of tennis this year, this market is a potential goldmine!

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.

It’s always good to learn a bit more about the players before placing any bets. Therefore, I’d advise reading these quick previews:

Jakub Mensik preview

Not much is known about Jakub Mensik at this level, which is perfectly logical. After all, the guy is ranked outside of the top 200 in the world – not someone you expect to see in the third round of a Grand Slam. Yet nothing can be taken away from his achievements here, as he has beaten two decent players to make the third round. But Fritz is in a different league compared to his previous opponents.

Taylor Fritz preview

Fritz has been nothing short of ruthless in his opening two matches. He has destroyed both Steve Johnson and Varillas to reach the third round. And because he has been so efficient in these opening two rounds, he will be feeling both fresh and confident going into this one. Yet interestingly, if Fritz wins this contest, this will be his best performance ever at the US Open.

Mensik vs Fritz head to head

Unsurprisingly, Fritz and Mensik have never played each other on the ATP Tour. Then again, this is to be expected since Fritz is 25 years old while Mensik is just 17. Additionally, they wouldn’t usually play the same level of tournaments due to the difference in rankings.
