Monte Carlo Masters 2022: Taylor Fritz Vs Marin Cilic Match Prediction, Head-To-Head, Preview And Livestream 

10th seed Talor Fritz will face off against the 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic in the 2nd round of the Monte Carlo Masters on Wednesday. Having finished as the runner-up in St. Petersburg last year, along with five other semifinal appearances, the American has taken his game a notch higher this season. Fritz snapped Rafael Nadal’s 20-match winning streak to lift the biggest trophy of his career at the Indian Wells Masters last month. However, he is yet to find his footing on clay this season as he was tested by World No. 430 Lucas Catarina in the first round of the Monte-Carlo Masters.

World No. 22 Cilic, meanwhile, had a fabulous end to the 2021 season. Following his runner-up finish in Moscow, he went one step better to clinch the title in St. Petersburg. The 33-year-old Croat also guided his nation to the Davis Cup Finals. Cilic carried that momentum into the new season, reaching the semifinals in his first couple of events at Adelaide. After a bit of a slump, a return to clay helped him get back to his rhythm as he pummeled Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-2, 6-2 to start his Monte-Carlo Masters campaign on Monday.

Taylor Fritz Vs Marin Cilic Match Prediction: Who Will Win This Match?

Although Taylor Fritz is the higher-ranked player in this clash and has had a better season, his performance on Tuesday didn’t inspire much confidence. Fritz is still trying to make the transition from hardcourt to clay and so far, it’s been a struggle for the American. Cilic, has the upper hand at the moment as he played brilliant first-strike tennis against Tsonga in the first round, winning 86% of first-serve points. If he can keep up his aggressive level and serve well, he will likely beat Fritz.

Prediction: Cilic to win in straight sets.
