Both players have put in excellent performances to find themselves in the semi-finals here. Taylor Fritz takes on Andrey Rublev in the first of the semi-finals at ATP Monte-Carlo in a match that will be live streamed from around 12:30pm UK time.
Rublev is the highest seeded player left in the draw and did well to see off a Jan-Lennard Struff that had been playing excellent tennis this week. The Russian is good on clay courts, but a title here at Monte-Carlo would be a massive feather in his cap.
Taylor Fritz is making a brilliant start to his clay court season. Traditionally, Americans don’t fare well on the red clay, mainly as a result of a lack of exposure to the surface in their development. However, there is no reason why Fritz can’t buck that trend as he has excellent stroke production, especially on the backhand side, and he has point-ending power.
Fritz leads this head to head 4-2, but the pair have never met on clay before. Previous data from clay would suggest that Rublev should have the advantage here. He retains an above 80% hold percentage on clay, whereas Fritz’s drops to 75%, albeit this week Fritz is holding at 90%. From observing Fritz against Tsitsipas I like his chances here against Rublev, the American’s movement appears to be really good and he looks ready to take another step forward.
