Last season, apparently, was a turning point for Frances Tiafoe. This year, the tennis player showed that he is able to play on equal terms with absolutely any opponent, including those from the top ten.

Francis’ main achievement was reaching the semi-finals of the US Open. In the fourth round match, the American won a landslide victory over Rafael Nadal, and in the next match he won against Andrey Rublev.

In the semi-finals, Tiafoe lost to Carlos Alcaraz, who was on the verge of defeat in the fourth set. In addition, in the fall, Tiafoe reached the final in Tokyo and the quarter-finals at the Masters in Paris.

Tomas Machac

Tomas Machac, meanwhile, finished the year in the top 100 – at the moment, the tennis player from the Czech Republic occupies 97th place in the ATP rankings.

Last season, Tomas played mainly on the Challengers, trying to climb as high as possible. But at the same time, the tennis player managed to play some good matches at the ATP level.

At the beginning of the year, the Czech tennis player qualified and won one match in the main draw of the Australian Open. In Marseille and at the Masters in Indian Wells, Mahach reached the second round.

Much in this match will depend on Tiafoe and his current playing condition. The American played pretty well last season – he played in two finals and reached the semi-finals at the US Open for the first time in his career.

We expect that Francis will be able to demonstrate a quality game in Australia.

Prediction for this meeting: Tiafoe to win with a handicap (-4) of the game.

Total under 22 games.
