Summary:

Both Frances Tiafoe and Sebastian Baez will have a chance to win their first tournament of the year when they meet in the ATP Estoril final

Details:

Frances Tiafoe is currently 29th in the ATP rankings with his highest ranking being one spot higher. He is 24-years-old and was one of the most promising players a couple of years back but has yet to fulfil his potential.

Tiafoe is 11-7 for the season with 7-2 on clay and 4-5 on hard surfaces.

In Estoril, he played three sets in each of the previous four matches. Tiafoe saved three match points in the semifinal match against Sebastian Korda to win 4-6, 7-6 and 6-4. Previously in Estoril, the American went past the Monte Carlo finalist Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, Nuno Borges and Dusan Lajovic.

Last week, Tiafoe lost in the second round in Barcelona to Felix Auger Aliassime 7-5 and 6-4 after defeating Hugo Dellien in the opening round.

Tiafoe’s best result before reaching the Estoril final this season came in Houston and Miami where he reached the third round.

Sebastian Baez is currently 59th in the ATP rankings which is his career-best.

The 21-year-old Argentinian is 21-13 for the season with 15-6 on clay and 5-7 on hard surface.

Baez is coming off a 6-3, 6-7 and 6-0 semifinal win over veteran Albert Ramos Vinollas. Previously, Baez needed three sets to go past Richard Gasquet and Marin Cilic after he defeated Joao Sousa in straight sets in the opening round

Last week in Barcelona, Baez lost in the opening round, 7-5 and 7-5 against Lorenzo Musetti.

His best result so far in the season is the final in Santiago where he lost to Pedro Martinez by 4-6, 6-4 and 6-4.

Key facts

  • Frances Tiafoe is playing for the fourth time in Estoril. He made it to the final match in his first appearance back in 2018 when he lost 6-4 and 6-4 to Joao Sousa
  • This is the first appearance for Sebastian Baez in Estoril
  • This will be the first match between Frances Tiafoe and Sebastian Baez

This will be an interesting match in which both players will search for their first title of the season and a unique opportunity to win one in Europe. Tiafoe is two years older than Baez and much more experienced but the Argentinian has played more games on clay court which Tiafoe prefers hard surface. Both players have played long matches during the tournament, with Tiafoe going through four three sets matches while Baez had a straight set win in only one. Both players will have their ups and downs in the final and details will make the difference. In that kind of scenario, Tiafoe, who has a decent chance of winning this game, will definitely be close enough to cover the offered spread of +3.5 games for a nice odd of -169.
