Frances Tiafoe vs Andy Murray Prediction
Andy Murray is trying hard to get back to his former status on the Tour as one of the leading players. But the former world number one is failing big time. In fact, he has not got past the round of 16 of any tournament he played in 2020 and 2021.
Similarly, Tiafoe is not able to find the form he was in 2018 in which the American enjoyed his best season. Nonetheless, Tiafoe’s results are better than Murray’s and that is why the bookies find the American a slight favorite. Tiafoe’s win has odds of 1.80 while Murray’s is 2.00 at Vbet.
In conclusion, we don’t think it will be easy for both players. In the only H2H, Murray won in three sets last year. Hence we think we might see a similar scenario of many games played.
