Yannick Hanfmann vs Taylor Fritz – Match Predictions

Taylor Fritz to Win

While Hanfmann is outside the ATP top 100, he has the ability to cause Fritz problems. The German’s playing style suits clay court and he has already three wins under his belt. On the other hand, Fritz is confident in his abilities after deep runs on the European clay court events. While he will be wary of Hanfmann’s abilities, especially after suffering a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Zhizhen Zhang in the fourth round of the Madrid Open, Fritz should have enough in the tank to claim a victory.

Over 21.5 Games

Both Hanfmann and Fritz possess aggressive playing styles and are strong on their serves. They will force the issue in this duel and we will likely see plenty of long, hard-fought rallies in this match. Moreover, they have had trouble finishing off their rivals in recent weeks, going deep in sets and deciding the fates of their affairs with slight margins in their favour. Based on these factors, we are confident in suggesting that the match is likely to go the distance and see over 21.5 games.

Yannick Hanfmann vs Taylor Fritz Preview

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

Yannick Hanfmann

The German is a veteran on the court and has shown in the past to trouble rivals far above his rankings. Primarily a baseline player, his tendency to take the ball early and hit it hard has helped him get out of trouble in recent matches. This was on display in his last match against Nicolas Jarry, where he won 80% of his first-serve points. He generated heavy topspin against the Chilean and will make sure to give Fritz cause for concern with his ability to control the ball on the slow surface.

Taylor Fritz

The American professional tennis player is known for his aggressive baseline game. Coupled with his powerful serve and forehand, he is a dangerous opponent on the ATP tour. His ability to dictate rallies with groundstrokes has helped him on the European swing, marching to the semi-final of the Monte Carlo Masters and third-round appearances in Munich and Madrid. He will have similar designs in the Italian Open but will have to be wary of the German rival who possesses similar skills.
