Fritz vs Sinner – Match Predictions
As some of you may remember, Taylor Fritz was the 2022 Indian Wells champion. He managed to win his first Masters 1000 event at this very tournament by beating Rafael Nadal in the 2022 final. So naturally, Fritz has good memories in Indian Wells, and he definitely plays well here. Furthermore, Fritz is number 5 in the world at the moment, while he is seeded 4th for this tournament.
As for Jannik Sinner, he is a formidable player too. The big-hitting Italian is ranked 13 in the world, and he has yet to lose a set en route to the quarter-finals in 2023. With this said, if you want to place a wager or two based on a couple of tennis predictions today, please see the predictions below.
Fritz to Win
Given that Fritz is playing great tennis at the moment, combined with the fact that he is the defending champion, I’m taking Fritz to win this one. Additionally, Fritz actually earned his 1-0 head-to-head record against Sinner by beating him at Indian Wells in 2021. So this shows that the conditions in Indian Wells suit Fritz when taking on Sinner.
Over 22.5 Games
Although I believe that Fritz will win this match, it has the potential to be a very close contest. In fact, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the match went to three sets. Should this happen, it’s essentially a guarantee that the match will have over 22.5 games. Then again, this is also possible if Fritz vs Sinner finishes in two close sets.
Fritz vs Sinner Preview
My Fritz vs Sinner predictions wouldn’t be comprehensive without a quick preview for each player ahead of this quarter-final. So let me dive into this now.
Taylor Fritz Preview
Taylor Fritz isn’t a top-five player for nothing. He has truly earned his spot among the best in the world due to big performances in Masters 1000 events and Grand Slams over the last 12 months. Of course, the title run in Indian Wells last year will give him a significant confidence boost when he takes on Sinner too.
Jannik Sinner Preview
While Sinner is outside of the top 10, he has the kind of game that means he can beat anyone on his day. With huge strikes on both the forehand and backhand wings, he could cause major problems for Fritz. Then again, he did lose to Fritz in their previous meeting in Indian Wells, in straight sets, I might add.
Fritz vs Sinner Head to Head
Taylor Fritz holds a 1-0 head-to-head advantage over Jannik Sinner. They played in Indian Wells back in 2021, and Fritz won the match 6-4 6-3. However, they’ve both evolved since that match, which makes this a very intriguing match to tune in for.
