The second round of ATP Grand Slam at Wimbledon. There we have an interesting and exciting game on our hands as two of the most improved players this season will face off against each other. To have more insights on this ATP Jan-Lennard Struff vs Taylor Fritz please check out the preview below.
The German has climbed to his best career result by reaching 33rd rank while being 29 years old. He’s been having an impressive run on clay and played well on hard as well but nobody expected him to start on grass that strong as well. Struff had only won 11 matches out of 22 on grass before entering the first tournament on this ground this season. He debuted at Stuttgart on grass this year and he’s reached the semi-final already and has a record of 5 wins and 2 loses this season so far. Struff has actually improved a lot on this all-around game and is a player that’s hard to deal with to anyone. Struff had no problems at the opening round where he defeated Radu Albot in straight sets.
If Struff wants to get past Fritz tomorrow he will have to show something similar what we’ve seen from him previously.
We’ve written a lot about Taylor this season and he’s just not planning to stop surprising us. Only being 21 years old he’s reached his best ranking this season at 31st and has been playing great tennis so far. Fritz was always a good player on fast grounds but hadn’t been considered as a great player on grass but here we are. After an early exit at Hertogenbosch and Halle where he fell short against Bautista and Coric, Fritz has stepped up at Eastbourne by winning a title and haven’t looked back since then while stomping Berdych in straight sets at the first round of Wimbledon as well. It seems like everything is working well for a young man and it’s hard to see any bigger weaknesses in his game so far. Tomorrow will be a great test to really start putting him higher in all of the expert’s lists.
