Milos Raonic vs Frances Tiafoe – Match Predictions

Frances Tiafoe is coming off a disappointing week in Washington where he had to play multiple matches in one day. However, he is ready to go in Toronto and is the favorite to win against Milos Raonic in the opening round.

Frances Tiafoe to win

Tiafoe recently made it to the top 10 of the ATP rankings for the first time in his career which speaks enough of his form. The American is ready for another deep US Open run and winning matches in Toronto will give him the needed confidence. Milos Raonic is still trying to get in full shape after missing almost two years and will have no chance in this match. The Canadian still serves well but will not be able to threat Tiafoe who moves very well.

Over 22.5 games

Regardless of the form Raonic is in, it is a fact that the Candian still has one of the best serves on the tour and that will keep him in this match. Tiafoe will have no problem holding to his serve and this will go easily over 22.5 games in total.
