Spread the love

Day 4, round of 16 action in Stockholm features a highly anticipated matchup between Andy Murray and Jannik Sinner, we also have predictions for matches featuring Dan Evans and Denis Shapovalov. Which players will make it into the quarterfinals as the ATP season winds down?

Pedro Martinez vs Frances Tiafoe

Martinez was a quarterfinalist in Moscow, he edged Emil Ruusuvuori in three sets in the opening round. Tiafoe beat Swedish player Elias Ymer in the opening round. Tiafoe was the finalist in Vienna and on this surface should have the upper hand against Martinez, the American looks well positioned to play his best on indoor hard courts. Tiafoe in 2

Marton Fucsovics vs Botic Van de Zandschulp

Van de Zandschulp reached a career high ranking of #61 this week, he was a semifinalist in St. Petersburg and won his opening round match in Stockholm with ease. Fucsovics also had an easy round 1 win, and was a quarterfinalist in Antwerp. Fucsovics has matched his best career season on the ATP Tour this year, but on this surface Van de Zandschulp’s upwards momentum looks to continue. I expect the Dutch player to serve well and find a way to earn this win. Van de Zandschulp in 3

Tommy Paul vs Taylor Fritz

Fritz just won when they met on indoor hard in St. Petersburg, the h2h overall is 2-2. Fritz is in great form, he beat Egor Gerasimov after reaching the quarterfinals in Paris, the Indian Wells semifinal and the St. Petersburg final came in the weeks prior to that as well, those results helping propel Fritz to a career high ranking inside the top 25. Paul beat Leo Borg in the opening round, and qualified for Paris, but he’s a level below Fritz right now, the higher ranked American looks well positioned to win this match and advance forward in this draw. Fritz in 2

Jannik Sinner vs Andy Murray

Murray has struggled to sustain momentum on the ATP Tour this season, winning this match would put him into his first quarterfinal since Metz a few weeks ago, but he’s a serious underdog to Sinner, who won Sofia and Antwerp, and reached the semifinals in Vienna recently. A first match exit in Paris aside, Sinner is in better form and should be refreshed, while Murray’s win over Viktor Durasovic in round 1 isn’t much of a statement form wise. Sinner’s time is now, while Murray’s moment seems to have passed. Sinner in 2
