There’s no match history between these two players.
This should be a fun match with the way both guys are racking up the free points. Cressy has a fighting chance if he can continue to get 15-plus aces. The difference here for me is the experience in big matches, as Fritz has a clear edge in pressure situations. Heck, Fritz won this tournament a few years ago, which doesn’t hurt.
Give me Fritz to win his second title of the year.
