TennisSection previews the 2022 Atlanta Open as Frances Tiafoe takes on Taro Daniel in the Round of 16 on Wednesday, July 27th, 2022.
Will Frances Tiafoe get the win? Will Taro Daniel pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a crowd favorite taking on a dangerous opponent. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open?
Frances Tiafoe hasn’t had the best season, struggling to create a name for himself amongst the regular candidates for titles. However, he’ll really be pleased to be back in America for the hard court swing, as the 2nd half of the year is definitely more in his lane. Taro Daniel will be a really tough opponent, but simply from the way the crowd will support him and the way in which his game adapts to the hard courts, I fully expect Tiafoe to take out Daniel and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
Taro Daniel took down Sebastian Korda in 3 sets after dropping the 1st set 1-6, he’ll be looking to continue to spoil the party for the Americans as he looks ahead to Frances Tiafoe. If he wants to take this one, he will have to keep a very stable game, while really pushing at the weaknesses of Tiafoe. The issue is, when Tiafoe is on, he has no holes in his game, the hole that’s usually there is that he often isn’t on. If Daniel can take advantage of a weaker Tiafoe, I fully expect him to have a shot in this match as the two face off for a spot in the final eight at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
Frances Tiafoe and Taro Daniel have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Taro Daniel plays a very consistent game, but he isn’t necessarily a repellent to Tiafoe. Tiafoe is very aggressive, and Daniel needs to not only remain stable and consistent, but also look to counterpunch and make Tiafoe try to bite off more than he can chew. Let’s see what these two can do as they fight for a place in the quarterfinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
