TennisSection previews the 2023 Acapulco Open as Taylor Fritz takes on Frances Tiafoe in the quarterfinal on Thursday, March 2, 2023.
Will Taylor Fritz get the win? Will Frances Tiafoe pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have the favorite on the top half taking on his flashy compatriot. Who will triumph and move through to the semifinals at the 2023 Acapulco Open?
Taylor Fritz scored an impressive win over Denis Shapovalov, taking him out 6-4 6-4, losing just one point on serve all match. As Fritz looks ahead to Frances Tiafoe, he’ll be feeling like the big favorite, but he knows what Tiafoe is capable of, and as such will be wary of his tactics, particularly how Tiafoe comes forward and looks to get out of those longer rallies. Fritz has been playing such consistent tennis this week though, and I expect him to pull out the win for a spot in the semifinals of the 2023 Acapulco Open.
Frances Tiafoe took out a spirited Feliciano Lopez in a tighter-than-expected match to book his place in the final eight. He won’t be excited to see Taylor Fritz as the man he must take on next, but he’ll certainly give it his all. If he wants a shot at the win, I think he’ll need to focus on his more aggressive-minded tactics, using drop shots and serve and volleying whenever it’s possible. Let’s see if he can pull out a win here as he looks to fight for a spot in the last four at the 2023 Acapulco Open.
Taylor Fritz and Frances Tiafoe have met six times before, with Taylor Fritz leading the head to head 5-1. The head-to-head certainly doesn’t look good for Tiafoe, losing their last five meetings and only winning once. Fritz may just be too solid at the moment with his pinpoint serving and baseline precision giving him the edge. Expect the world No. 5 to grab the win and advance to the semifinals here at the 2023 Acapulco Open.
