TennisSection previews the 2023 Dallas Open as Frances Tiafoe takes on Mackenzie McDonald in the second round on Wednesday, February 8, 2023.
Will Frances Tiafoe get the win? Will Mackenzie McDonald pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have two flashy Americans facing off. Who will triumph and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2023 Dallas Open?
Frances Tiafoe has been on the rise for the last months, making his first major semifinal and having great results elsewhere. He’s got a really complete game and can produce some seriously good tennis, and I expect nothing less as he takes on Mackenzie McDonald. Though his opponent will put up a fight, I expect Tiafoe to grab the win and move through to the quarterfinals of the 2023 Dallas Open.
Mackenzie McDonald got an extremely eye-catching win over Rafael Nadal at this year’s Australian Open. Despite the circumstances around the injury, it no doubt helped McDonald’s confidence. Although he fell to Nishioka in straight sets the next round, McDonald can produce some great tennis and it should be interesting to see what he can do coming up against Frances Tiafoe here at the 2023 Dallas Open.
Frances Tiafoe and Mackenzie McDonald have met twice before, with the head to head being level at 1-1. They haven’t played in years, and their matches really aren’t a good indicator of this matchup considering Tiafoe is a much different player, although both have improved. I expect an exciting match with some great shotmaking but Tiafoe should come out on top and book his spot in the last eight at the 2023 Dallas Open.
