Juncheng Shang vs Frances Tiafoe – Match Predictions

The North American is competing in his first competition as one of the world’s top ten players. The young Chinese player will try to surprise his opponent like he did in the previous round against another American. Take a look at the top Citi Open 2023 betting tips and also tennis predictions today.

Tiafoe to Win 2-0

Considering Tiafoe’s performance in the second round of the Citi Open 2023, I expect him to win this match in straight sets again. Tiafoe won 8 of his last 10 matches, 6 of them in straight sets. Shang usually loses in the second round or earlier, which increases the odds of him losing.

Under 22.5 Total Games

In the previous round, Frances Tiafoe had a tough duel against Karatsev, in fact, there were a total of 26 games. The American tennis player is in one of his best moments, so I think he will not have so many problems beating the 18-year-old. So it won’t be strange at all if there are less than 22.5 games in this match.

Juncheng Shang

The 18-year-old has a decent record of 25 wins and 15 losses, but he lost in the first round of the most important tournaments. Shang advanced past the second round of a tournament twice, both times in Challenger tournaments.

The Chinese tennis player has gradually gained points to enhance his rating; if he continues to win, he will most likely be in the top 100 next year.

Frances Tiafoe

After reaching the third round at Wimbledon, the 25-year-old finally entered the top 10 of the ATP rankings. He has since taken a week off and returned to the Citi Open courts in search of a better result than last season when he reached the quarterfinals.

In the preliminary round, Tiafoe knocked out Aslan Karatsev, although it was not easy. The American player won in straight sets but each set was defined in tiebreaks. Neither of the two players converted breakpoints.

Shang vs Tiafoe Head to Head

This is not the first time that Juncheng Shang and Frances Tiafoe have faced each other. When the season started we saw them face each other in the second round of the Australian Open. There, Tiafoe won in straight sets and converted a total of five break points.
