Lorenzo Sonego vs Frances Tiafoe – Match Predictions

Frances Tiafoe to Win 1st Set

Both Sonego and Toagoe will want to start the match on the right football. The Italian lost the first round against Daniel Evans but rallied back to win 1-2. Tiafoe was similarly made to work by Yosuke Watanuki to book his place, however, he lost the first set on a tiebreaker. The American will also have revenge on his mind and given his better pedigree and ability to grind on games, we expect him to claim the first set.

Over 22.5 Games

Tiafoe’s two sets against Watanuki saw 26 games. Another set followed as the score was tied 1-1 after this haul. Sonego saw 19 games after the first two sets against Evans. Eight more games had to be played before a winner was announced. Both players are competitive and it looks likely that they will force each other into deep waters and extra time, giving us more than 22.5 games in their battle.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Frances Tiafoe Preview

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

Lorenzo Sonego

The Italian is ranked 59 in the ATP rankings and beckons at improving his standing with a solid run at the Hard Rock Stadium. He was found napping by Daniel Evans on numerous occasions in the previous round. However, it was his resolve that allowed him to progress, saving 12 of the 13 breakpoints he accrued. Sonego will be ill-advised to relax against the consistent Tiafoe, who uses his serve and powerful ground strokes to put his rivals into submission.

Frances Tiafoe

At 25, Tiafoe is starting to come into his own. He has started to go deeper into competitions and it seems only a matter of time that he will be able to add to his solitary silverware haul. He was made to work hard by Watanuki, being broken down thrice, omce in each set of their duel. Tiafoe grunt it out against the Japanese ace and would have ironed out his mistakes in his mind to give a better account of his abilities against Sonego.
