Our favourite Tommy Paul vs Arthur Fils – match predictions

Paul is the 12th seed at Shanghai Masters and lived up to his billing in his 2-0 victory over Sebastian Ofner. He has a tough task on his hands as the burgeoning Fils arrives after a stright-set slam over Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.

2-1 to Tommy Paul @ 3/1 (4.00)

Tommy is the overwhelming favourite to triumph in this meeting and with good reason. He has been impressive in the 2023 campaign but will be wary of Fils, who has earned wins over higher-ranked rivals himself. Both arrived in Shanghai after a string of losses in the Laver Cup and Davis Cup but impressed with their straight-set victories in the last round. We anticipate sets to be exchanged but Paul came out on top in the end with a 2-1 result.

Over 22.5 Games @ 9/10 (1.90)

Paul was efficient in his victory over Ofner, only needing 15 games to overcome the Austrian ace. Fils was in a similar mood, getting past the 25-ranked Davidovich Fokina in 20 games. His prior meeting with Pavel Kotov had a similar conclusion, seeing only 17 games. With the duo not letting up and being at their best, we expect very few mistakes to be made and the match to go the distance. This will likely see over 22.5 games bing played at a minimum and we are going with this selection to find a winner.

Tommy Paul vs Arthur Fils odds
