The American player beat Max Purcell from Australia in the previous round, with two close tie breaks that favoured Taylor Fritz. Next, the No. 9 in the ATP rankings will face Alexander Shevchenko, who recently eliminated Stan Wawrinka. Despite being favoured in the Basel Open odds, Fritz should take care of Shevchenko, who’s won the last three matches.

Our favourite Taylor Fritz vs Alexander Shevchenko predictions

The Basel Open 2023 features thrilling matchups and below are some tennis predictions about them.

Fritz to win 2-0 @ 11/20 (1.55)

My prediction for the Taylor Fritz vs Alexander Shevchenko match is that the American tennis player will win in two sets. Fritz has won twice as many matches as Shevchenko on hardcourt.

In four out of Shevchenko’s last six matches, he lost at least one set, indicating that his defence is vulnerable even against inferior opponents.

Over 20.5 games @ 21/20 (2.05)

Despite my initial prediction of a 2-set match, Fritz’s previous game lasted 26 games. Although Shevchenko has struggled against his recent opponents, I believe he will provide a tough challenge. Therefore, it is not unlikely to witness more than 20.5 games in this match.

Taylor Fritz vs Alexander Shevchenko odds

These are the most recent news updates regarding Fritz and Shevchenko. Additionally, we invite you to review our predictions for other upcoming tennis matches.

Taylor Fritz

Fritz boasts an impressive record of 53 wins and 22 losses. This season, he has triumphed in three consecutive tournaments, the latest being his victory at Atlanta just over two months ago.

However, his inactivity for nearly a week before the previous round caused him to lose some of his fitness. Consequently, he faced some difficulties in overcoming Max Purcell, as evidenced by the 7-6 7-6 scoreline.

Alexander Shevchenko

After successfully passing two qualifying rounds that seemed easy in theory, Shevchenko caused an upset by defeating one of the favourites among the Swiss crowd, Stan Wawrinka. Although Alexander was the visiting player, he took control of the match and secured a convincing 6-3 7-6 triumph.

Fritz vs Shevchenko Head to Head

At this time of year, it is not uncommon for some matches to be repeated, but Taylor Fritz and Alexander Shevchenko are scheduled to play each other for the first time at the Basel Open 2023.
