Taylor Fritz vs Jiri Lehecka – Match Predictions

Taylor Fritz to Win

It is difficult to see past Fritz in this meeting. The American impressed at the Sunshine Double with a quarter-final place at both the Indian Wells and Miami Open. He has brought that form to Monte Carlo, getting past Stan Wawrinka by saving each of the five breakpoints he allowed. It was smooth sailing as he converted two of the five to get past the veteran Swiss. Lehecka allowed 14 break-point opportunities in the previous rounds and was able to save 10 of these. Fritz’s conversion rate showcases he will make the most of these opportunities to continue his path forward.

2-0 to Taylor Fritz

Fritz was on song at both Indian Wells and Miami Open. His run was only impeded by men who themselves would lose out in the semi-finals. He likes playing in Monte Carlo where he earned three of his five wins on the clay court circuit. Lehecka has his hands full and looks unlikely to pose a problem for the American. Their last duel saw a straight-sets victory for Fritz and a similar outcome is expect given the breakpoints statistics he has displayed.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in Monte Carlo Masters.

Taylor Fritz

The top-ranked American tennis ace started his Monte Carlo Masters adventures on the right foot. He got past Stan Wawrinka in straight sets but did roll back the years to force a tiebreaker in the first set. Fritz will want to give a good account of his abilities here as three of his five wins on clay court came in this 1000 event. He has a chip on his shoulder after losing to Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz in the semifinals of the Indian Wells and Miami Open.

Jiri Lehecka

Lehecka has impressed in Monte Carlo, steamrolling past higher-ranked Emil Ruusuvuori and Grigor Dimitrov. The wins accumulated have not come without problems as Jiri allowed 14 breakpoints and found a way forward by saving them on 10 occasions. Fritz will not be as merciful as down on his luck Dimitrov and the Czech ace needs to up the game if he wishes to survive to the next round of the Monte Carlo Masters.
