Tommy Paul vs Lloyd Harris Prediction
Both players have a fairly strong pitch, so this meeting is unlikely to be quick. In the previous three matches, Harris made 47 aces. Making a break for such an opponent will be incredibly difficult. In this regard, we doubt the easy victory of Tommy Paul. Probably worth playing a positive head start on Lloyd.
Our prediction – Lloyd Harris to win
