US OPEN Predictions: Day One

Day One — Match of the Day: Jack Sock (USA) v. Taylor Fritz (USA)

Taylor Fritz, the lanky 6ft 4in American teen, will make a strong first impression on fans at the US Open on Monday evening. So far this season, he has a 12-16 record (with quarter-finals in Atlanta, Acapulco and Memphis). Fritz has a big serve and a powerful forehand, but they pale in comparison to the current ‘King of the Forehand,’ fellow American Jack Sock. Sock will be making his first appearance on the courts after winning bronze and gold medals for doubles in Rio. Expect Sock to claim his territory as the great American hope.
