Taylor Fritz vs Yibing Wu – Match Predictions
Yibing Wu is the next big hope of the Chinese tennis and will have a chance to play against a top 10 player, as he faces Taylor Fritz in the second round of the Atlanta Open.
Taylor Fritz -3.5
Fritz is not having a season as he wanted especially after the end of the clay court season. The American is on the verge of getting out of the Top 10 players on the tour and he is not about to let that happen. Fritz lost to Wu the last time these two met, but that will not be the case in Atlanta as Fritz will prove his quality and win this one by covering the -3.5 games spread.
Under 22.5 games
Wu has not been playing well lately and the win in the opening round in Atlanta was the first one after four straight losses. His confidence is not on the necessary level to play against a top 10 player, and Fritz will take full advantage of that and will win this match with under 22.5 games.
