Forecast for Fritz and Mannarino
A victory in the Delray Beach tournament will significantly strengthen the American’s seventh position in the ATP rankings and bring him closer to Nadal and Rublev. These. We have no doubts about Taylor’s motivation, no one has canceled the fight for the best hands when seeding at major tournaments. Besides, Fritz certainly wants to win his first individual title in 2023. Let’s not forget that in 2022 Fritz won three trophies. Well, Mannarino is not a weak opponent having beaten the American twice in his career, but Adrian’s career is now on the verge of collapse, that’s obvious. We believe Fritz will get a landslide victory over the veteran Frenchman on Saturday night.
The main prediction is an exact score of 2-0 for 1.60
