It’s no surprise that Team USA are giving it their all to retain their United Cup title. Yet they must make it out of the group before they think about any title shots. On that note, my Taylor Fritz vs Alex de Minaur predictions presented here are of great relevance to their chances – just read on for full details.

Our favourite Taylor Fritz vs Alex de Minaur predictions

Although Taylor Fritz is the higher-ranked player of these two, they’ve had some very close battles in the past. In fact, de Minaur holds the lead over Fritz in the head-to-head department (4-3). Furthermore, he is playing in front of home fans in this match, which has led me to the Taylor Fritz vs Alex de Minaur predictions below:

Three total sets @ 11/10 (2.10)

Based on previous matches between these two guys, it seems logical to shoot for three total sets in this encounter. They’ve played seven times in total in their careers. Of these seven, six of them have been ‘best of three’ matches, and four of these six have gone the distance. Therefore, given the odds on offer, this is a value pick.   

Over 23.5 games @ 10/11 (1.91)

Of course, since my first Fritz vs de Minaur prediction is for the match to go three sets, this market is the perfect complement to the first wager. Assuming the match is a tight contest, which it should be, this market has a great shot of coming through.

Taylor Fritz vs Alex de Minaur odds

As per the moneyline odds, the probability of Fritz winning is 60%, while the chance of de Minaur winning is 45.50%.

Can Fritz keep the momentum going for Team USA?

After his performance against Cam Norrie, Fritz will be hoping to guide team USA towards a critical group stage victory. Yet how do the previews for these two guys stack up ahead of this match?

Taylor Fritz preview

It’s no secret that Taylor Fritz has a dangerous game. He has a big serve and a forehand that can cause issues for just about anyone. However, he can be vulnerable when facing guys who are as consistent and as plucky as de Minaur. Then again, Fritz is a top-10 player, so he will certainly have the belief that he can take down the Aussie here.

Alex de Minaur preview

I’m sure de Minaur would have loved to take down Cam Norrie in his United Cup 2024 opener, yet it wasn’t meant to be. He was taken out in three sets, which must make him even hungrier for a win against Fritz in this match. Additionally, de Minaur is ranked 12 in the world, just two spots behind Fritz. And as you know, he has beaten the American four times.

Fritz vs De Minaur head to head

The head-to-head for Fritz vs de Minaur makes for good reading – if you are on the side of the Aussies. Alex de Minaur has beaten Fritz on four separate occasions, although three of these four wins came in 2019 or earlier. Since 2021, however, it’s Fritz who has beaten de Minaur on three out of four occasions. 

And just to throw another spanner in the works, de Minaur won the previous encounter in 2023 – a three-set contest.
