We propose a prediction for the Australian Open match on January 23 in the NBA. On this day, Taylor Fritz will fight with Kevin Anderson. Will the American manage to fight the South African? – read in our prediction
Fritz came to Melbourne to defend his last year’s third round. Then he showed a good game, but in the 1/16 finals he was stopped by Roger Federer. This year he also has a difficult tournament grid. After defeating Tallon Griekspoor (6-3, 6-3, 6-3), he will meet with Kevin Anderson.
It is worth noting that before the Australian Open, the US representative did not speak well. From the beginning of the year he played four fights, and beat only Viktor Durasovich. In other matches, Taylor lost to Alexander Bublik, Stefano Travagli and Karen Khachanov.
Due to an injury in 2019, Anderson played very little. As a result, Kevin flew out of the first hundred of the rating and fell to 122nd line. This season, the representative of South Africa will try to fix everything and the first results are already there. First, in the Asia Pacific Cup, the South African resisted Novak Djokovic (7-6, 7-6), and then defeated Chris Garin (6-3, 6-0) and Benoit Pera (2-6, 7-6, 7-6). But in Melbourne, Anderson encountered difficulties, since it was not easy to pass Ilya Ivashka (6-4, 2-6, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6).
In 2019, Kevin took off in the second round of AO, losing to Francis Tiafo.
Statistics and personal meetings

Taylor Fritz vs Kevin Anderson Game Prediction
With the exception of the last match, Anderson is doing pretty well this year. But Fritz so far defeats only those players who are outside the first hundred of the rating. It is unlikely that the American will be able to defeat the South African. Perhaps he will resist, but the final victory should go to Kevin.
- Our prediction is Kevin Anderson’s victory
