TennisSection previews the 2023 Dallas Open as Taylor Fritz takes on Jack Sock in the Round of 16 on Thursday, February 9, 2023.
Will Taylor Fritz get the win? Will Jack Sock pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have an all-American matchup with some big hitting in store. Who will triumph and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2023 Dallas Open?
Taylor Fritz suffered a tough loss at the Australian Open, falling in an upset to Popyrin in 5 in the 2nd round. Despite this, Fritz is extremely consistent at the ATP level, and I don’t expect him to falter in this one. I expect a sharp Fritz who will show his top-10 prowess as he looks to take down his compatriot in Jack Sock and book himself a spot in the next round here at the 2023 Dallas Open.
Jack Sock took down Ilya Ivashka in 3 really tight sets in the first round, and unfortunately, it’s not going to get any easier for him as he takes on America’s No. 1 player in Taylor Fritz. If he wants to win this one, he’ll have to hope Taylor is off his game, otherwise, it could get ugly for Sock quickly as the American veteran looks to extend his stay at the 2023 Dallas Open.
Taylor Fritz and Jack Sock have met 5 times before, with Taylor Fritz leading the head to head 3-2. Sock took their first two meetings over 7 years ago, long before Fritz became the player he is today. Winning their next 3 meetings with relative ease, even their Round of 16 match at this very tournament last season, I have no doubt Fritz will clinch this one and book himself a place in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Dallas Open.
