Stockholm Open 2021: Frances Tiafoe vs. Tommy Paul Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Stockholm Open as Frances Tiafoe takes on Tommy Paul in the semifinals on Friday, November 12th, 2021.

Will Frances Tiafoe get the win? Will Tommy Paul pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have two top Americans coming to a head. Who will move on to the final of the 2021 Stockholm Open?

Frances Tiafoe got a solid win over Dan Evans to set up yet another tough meeting as he takes on Tommy Paul. He dropped the first set 6-1, and then oddly won the next two in similar fashion taking both sets 6-1 as well. In order to take down Tommy Paul, he will have to play aggressively. This should be no problem for Tiafoe, as playing aggressively is his favorite type of style. He has way more weapons than Paul and is much more effective on quicker surfaces, I expect him to continue his aggressive level of play as he aims to take down Paul and head through to the final at the 2021 Stockholm Open.

Tommy Paul pulled off the upset over Murray in a very surprising win, taking him down in 3 sets. Murray had gotten a fantastic win just before, so for Paul to take him down is definitely making a statement. However, he has Frances Tiafoe in front of him, an opponent who is not a great matchup for him considering that Tiafoe plays a hyper-aggressive game, almost all of his shots are weapons that he uses to just continuously attack opponents. Paul will struggle to defend against that and create his own opportunities to make inroads in the points, let’s see if Paul can push Tiafoe as he hopes to pull off back to back to back upsets as he looks ahead to the final of the 2021 Stockholm Open.

Frances Tiafoe and Tommy Paul have met once before, with Frances Tiafoe leading the head to head 1-0. Their one meeting came at the Delray Beach Open in 2020, with Tiafoe winning in two tight sets. I expect this match to go differently, while the winner will likely be the same in Frances Tiafoe, he will definitely struggle, as he has not been consistent this tournament in terms of his level while Paul has, also having taken on tougher opponents to get here. I expect Tifaoe to ultimately clinch it out and get the win as he aims to fight for the title come Saturday at the 2021 Stockholm Open.
