Last season, this American athlete managed to break into the TOP-100. At the moment, he is placed on the 70th line of the ATP rating.
Firstly, Paul is a year older than Francine, respectively, he has more games on this coverage, and he also has a percentage of victories, but this is not so important, because Paul only recently broke into the APR tour, and before that he played with tennis players, which is not so difficult to replay, given that you are a talented player.
In 2020, this athlete proved to be just excellent. At the preparatory tournament before Adelaide, he reached the semifinals, where he lost to Harris, who simply surrendered to the final match, and lost in three sets with a plus or minus equal fight.
In Melbourne, he showed great tennis, beat Dimitrov in five sets and reached the third round, which is already very cool. True, in the third round we did not see any struggle from him, lost to Fucsovics 0-3 without a chance, although, of course, they expected at least one set in his performance, but oh well.
Paul is a promising, talented player who, probably for a year, has been developing, gaining momentum and, as you can see, has already burst into the Asia-Pacific tour and should progress further.
In the current campaign, Tommy defeated various rivals 8 times and was defeated three times. Last week, the 22-year-old US representative showed up for New York, but lost to Kechmanovich (4: 6,2: 6) in the first round of the competition. In Delray Beach, Paul in the 1/16 finals easily defeated Daniel Galan Riveros (6: 2.6: 4).
In the previous campaign, Frances was on the list of thirty strongest tennis players on the planet, but now he is only in 84th place in the ATP ranking.
Francis has a clear decline. This is obvious and hard to argue with. In Doha and Auckland at the start of 2020, he lost to Fuchovich and Imer Jr. in three sets, showing not the best tennis. It should also be noted that in Melbourne he took one set from Medvedev, which, in principle, is not so bad.
We’ll probably not take into account the defeat of Istomin at the Challenger, because we don’t know for what purpose Frances showed up and whether he needed him or not. In Dallas, by the way, he defeated stable, also gaining momentum, Nakashima, and this is already a small plus.
In the first round of the current competition, a black player fought with Emilio Gomez. One and a half hours it took the US representative to defeat the Ecuadorian rival. Tiafoe broke the opponent three times, once gave his serve and closed Gomez in two sets (7:6.6:2).

Paul vs Tiafoe Predictions
In our opinion, the black athlete is underestimated. Tiafoe has an excellent serve. In a previous match held as part of the current competition, Francis hit the first goal with 71% – a very good indicator.
Participants in the planned confrontation met twice (in 2015 and 2016), and Paul was defeated in both matches. Last season, Tiafoe flew out in this tournament in the first round, but in 2018, Francis won the league title here. It is unlikely that Tommy will be able to provide decent resistance to his compatriot.
- Our prediction: Frances Tiafoe Will Win.
