Our favourite Rinky Hijikata vs Frances Tiafoe – match predictions

Both Rinky and Frances required a deciding set for a date with destiny. The Australian ace defeated Zhizhen Zhang while the American ace dug deep to get the better of Adrian Mannarino.

3-0 to Frances Tiafoe @ 87/100 (1.87)

Rinky’s impressive run at the US Open underscores his potential and determination to make a mark on the tennis circuit. In Tiafoe, he faced the toughest task of his journey in Flushing Meadows. Not only is the American ace coming in his own, he is also a crowd favourite. The world number 10 defeated the 35-ranked Mannarino 3-1 but should impose himself against the Australian 110-ranked ace. Based on this, we expect a straight-sets victory for Tiafoe.

Under 32.5 Games @ 1/1 (2.00)

Rinky’s lack of focus can be a problem but when on the song, he can give anyone a difficult time as Zhang and Fucsovics will attest to. We expect Tiafoe to claim a straight sets victory but it will not come without complications. He has only been involved in a single tiebreaker thus far and triumphed in it. However, he has all the tools at his disposal to push through and with the support of the crowd should triumph. Based on this, we expect a swift execution by Tiafoe and the match should finish with under 32.5 games.
