Tiafoe vs Kwon Prediction

Kwon has benefited greatly from his ability to baseline and his flat groundstrokes throughout the competition. He might not have enough weapons at his disposal to defeat Tiafoe, though. If he wants to stand a chance of making it to the title match, he will have to step up and take some chances. Expect Tiafoe to defeat the South Korean and go to the final given his current form and skill.
