Taylor Fritz vs Fabian Marozsan prediction and odds: Australian Open 2024

A fantastic match is on the cards in the 2024 Australian Open men’s singles tonight. As you can see, it’s Fritz vs Marozsan in round three, and this will be the first time they’ve ever played. Of course, if you’re looking for tennis predictions today for this game – I’ve got you covered below.

Our favourite Taylor Fritz vs Fabian Marozsan predictions

If you’ve checked out the list of Australian Open seeds this year, you’ll know that Taylor Fritz is right up there with the best. He is the 12th seed, while Fabian Marozsan is not seeded in the men’s singles since he is ranked 67 in the world. 

However, don’t let this large ranking difference fool you, for the Hungarian can play some serious tennis, which brings me to my predictions for this contest:

Over 38.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)

On paper, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Fritz should steamroll his way into the fourth round of the 2024 Australian Open here. But Fabian Marozsan is a dangerous player, as proven by wins against the likes of Carlos Alcaraz in the past. Additionally, he has beaten Marin Cilic and Francisco Cerundolo to set up this match, so I feel this could be at least a four or even a five-set encounter.

Marozsan to win set – yes @ 10/21 (1.48)

Based on my thoughts that this match could extend beyond a simple 3-0 scoreline, I figured that the ‘to win a set’ markets should be addressed. And as it happens, the odds for Fabian Marozsan to win a set are quite appealing given his realistic chances of taking at least one set from the American.

Taylor Fritz vs Fabian Marozsan odds

Based on the latest moneyline odds, Fritz’s probability of victory here is 76.90% while the chance of Marozsan winning is 28.60%.

Fritz or Marozsan to reach the fourth round of the 2024 Australian Open?

Since my Fritz vs Marozsan predictions have now been covered, let’s look at each player in a little more detail.

Taylor Fritz preview

Taylor Fritz is ranked 12 in the world right now, and he certainly has the game to be competing for Grand Slams. However, it just hasn’t quite happened for him as of yet. Of course, this should motivate him to do well in these tournaments, and he certainly looked confident in his second-round thrashing of Hugo Gaston.

Fabian Marozsan preview

Marozsan is very much a ‘new kid on the block’ in Grand Slam events. In fact, he went out in the first round of qualifying last year, which shows how rapid his improvements have been over the last 12 months. As for his performances this year, he has played very well to take out Cilic in four sets followed by Cerundolo in straight sets.

Fritz vs Marozsan head to head

Since Marozsan is still so new to tournaments of this level, unsurprisingly, these two have never met in an ATP event before. Therefore, the head-to-head is 0-0.
