Fritz’s second Delray Beach tournament win was also won in straight sets, but it wasn’t easy. The duel with Mannarino lasted almost two hours, in the first set Taylor and Adrian played a tie-break, in which the Frenchman had a set, and the American won the second set 6:4. Fritz stats in this game: 8/1 Aces/Doubles, 74%/41% Serve Points, 26%/66% Returns, 29/19 Winners/Executors. Recall that Fritz is the first rocket of the competition and regardless of the result at the tournament in Delray Beach, Taylor will not move up in the ATP rankings, but will not drop below seventh place.

At the Australian Open, McKenzie advanced to the third round where he lost to Nishioka in three sets. McDonald then played for the national team in the Davis Cup, defeating Fomin in straight sets. In Dallas, he lost to Tiafoe in the second round, and at the Delray Beach tournament, he knocked out Daniel to a tie, got his revenge on Nishioka, and defeated Mmo in three matches. McKenzie’s rivals at Delray Beach were not at Fritz’s level, but overall McDonald is making a good impression at this tournament.

The score in Fritz vs. McDonald’s was 3-2 in Taylor’s favour, but Mackenzie left the last two personal meetings. It is worth noting that the boys’ paths crossed for the last time in November 2021, i.e. over a year ago.

Fritz has already won two fights at Delray Beach, both in straight sets, and this is already a trend. McDonald has experience beating Taylor, but previously Fritz was #1 in the US and top 10 in the world rankings. We believe that Taylor will continue his two-match winning streak and that the Americans’ matchup will not prove to be very drawn out. We offer the following Fritz-McDonald betting options:

The main prediction is an exact score of 2-0 for 1.85
