Have you checked out the latest details for Frances Tiafoe’s next match? The entertaining American is going up against Jordan Thompson in the Houston Open tonight, and it promises to be a great game. Of course, I’ve given my predictions for the game below, so do read on for a full overview.

Our favourite Jordan Thompson vs Frances Tiafoe predictions

As I like to do for important matches, I’ve provided a selection of tennis predictions today for the upcoming quarter-final between Tiafoe and Thompson. These two have played twice before, but not since 2019. So there’s clearly a fair length of time that has passed since they did battle. 

Regardless, I’ve looked at various factors to establish the following predictions for this encounter:

Tiafoe to win @ 8/15 (1.53)

I know that Frances Tiafoe hasn’t had the best season so far. But he is still the defending champion at the Houston Open, and this may bring back good memories and help him rediscover his best tennis. Additionally, he had a tight three-set win over Duckworth in the last round, which should boost his confidence.

Thompson +3.5 games handicap @ 8/13 (1.62)

I believe that Tiafoe will win this match in front of his home fans. However, Thompson is having a great season, hence he is the 6th seed for this event. He will obviously fancy his chances because of that, and he has a decent clay court game, which is why I think this is a good market to cover.

Jordan Thompson vs Frances Tiafoe odds

The latest odds for this game demonstrate a 42.10% probability of a win for Thompson and a 65.20% chance of a win for Tiafoe.

Will Tiafoe continue his march to defend his Houston Open crown?

Before things kick off later tonight, let me give you some more details for both players.

Jordan Thompson preview

Thanks to a string of great results in the last few months, Jordan Thompson is ranked 33 in the world. He’s taken out some big names too, which is why he won’t be intimidated by the prospect of facing Tiafoe on American soil. Additionally, he’s played one extra match to reach the quarters, which could give him that much-needed boost.

Frances Tiafoe preview

As mentioned earlier, Frances Tiafoe is the defending champion at this event. He will be desperate to retain his points for that reason, and I believe this is his opportunity to recover from somewhat of a slump in 2024. Given that he’s played one less match than Thompson to reach this stage, he should be fresher than the Aussie too.

Thompson vs Tiafoe head to head

The head-to-head between these two stands at 1-1. However, with both matches taking place back in 2019, I can’t really say that this has any bearing on the potential outcome tonight. That said, one of these guys will have bragging rights over the other when all is said and done.
