Taylor Fritz and Stefano Travaglia will meet on the court in the 1/32 final of Masters in Rome. The American has not yet had playing practice on clay this year, will he be able to quickly adapt to viscous courts?
Fritz is only 22 years old, but his career is like a roller coaster. Already at the age of 17, the tennis player played in the ATP series tournaments and rapidly moved up the ranking. But for some reason I decided to start a family at such a young age. When his child was born at the age of 19, the American pushed tennis into the background, so he not only lost a lot of positions in the ranking, but also began to regress. However, Taylor still managed to pull himself together and every season he performs only more stable. Moreover, at the moment the representative of the United States occupies the 25th line in the ranking and began to compete in prestigious competitions.
Fritz builds the game by serving: if the first ball passes regularly, he wins his games without a fight and in one breath. Recently, the American has become more confident in rallies, as he forces himself to run after balls. But it is still many times more stable in an attacking manner, when it can dominate the court and play the game. If from the forehand Taylor easily holds the ball and sharpens it, then from the backhand he makes a lot of unforced mistakes. Last season, for the first time in his career, the American played more than 20 matches on clay, while demonstrating that he is competitive on viscous courts.

Travaglia spent his entire career at ITF tournaments and Challengers. In addition, the tennis player could not make his debut in the top 100. However, last season, the Italian finally plucked up the courage and began to try his hand at the ATP tour (and this at 28 years old). The tennis player cannot boast of some incredible success, but he is gaining experience, opposing serious rivals, and currently occupies 87th place in the ranking. The dedication of the Italian should also be noted, since in recent years he has played an average of 80 matches per season.
As much as Travaglia tries to improve his performance on fast courts, he still gravitates towards profile ground. The Italian is able to carry out protracted rallies without much effort, switch from defense to attacking actions with lightning speed and has in his arsenal a huge arsenal of strikes, from cut to shortened. The key aspect in Stefano’s game is serving (even on clay, he effortlessly shoots about 10 aces per match).
Analysis of the fight
The tennis players have already met this season on the court, then the match was played on hard, and Travaglia won two sets. Now their fight will take place on sticky ground, where Fritz, although he added, still performs with differences. Both tennis players have a cannon feed, so most of their games will win without a fight. In rallies, Travaglia looks preferable, he not only moves quickly around the court and takes out difficult balls, but is also able to act aggressively, go to the net and quickly complete rallies. So today we’ll see a hard fight.
I do not recommend placing bets on the outcome in this match, as the chances of passing to the next stage are approximately equal. I suggest using a low total over (20.5). I think this is a gift from the bookmakers.
