They have never met at the tour level, however, Pospisil won their only meeting at the Challenger level in 2017.

Tiafoe Stuns Tsitsipas

Unseeded American Frances Tiafoe caused the biggest upset on day one at Wimbledon, defeating third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the opening round on Monday.

Saving all seven break points that he faced, Tiafoe converted four of eight break points to beat the 2021 French Open runner-up 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 in two hours and two minutes.

Tiafoe was well prepared for the grass court major having spent a lot of time on the surface this year. The World No. 57 won five matches in arow to win his first Challenger title on grass in Nottingham. He then featured at Queen’s, defeating Aljaz Bedene and Viktor Troicki in the first two rounds before falling to Denis Shapovalov in the quarterfinals.

Tiafoe also played at Eastbourne, but made a first-round exit after a defeat to Britain’s Liam Broady.

In contrast, Tsitsipas had not played since his French Open final loss to Novak Djokovic and was playing his first grass court match of the year on Monday.

Both players had 22 unforced errors in the match, but Tiafoe struck 43 winners, eight more than his opponent.

Tiafoe was out-aced by the Greek though, as Tsitsipas served 15 aces against the American’s seven.

The 2018 Delray Beach Open champion, Tiafoe improved to 13-12 this year. He reached the quarterfinals at Delray Beach this year and the fourth round of the Miami Open.

This is the 23-year-old’s fourth main draw appearance at Wimbledon, and he got knocked out in the first round just once, in 2019. He reached the second round on debut in 2017 and the third round in 2018.

Pospisil too Strong for Carballes Baena

Facing Tiafoe in the second round will be Canada’s Vasek Pospisil, who dispatched Spain’s Roberto Carballes Baena in the opening round on Monday.

In what was a dominating performance, Pospisil struck 18 aces and 50 winners to beat the World No. 100, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3.

The Canadian converted five of 12 break points and saved four of five to wrap up the contest in an hour and 44 minutes.

The 31-year-old, who was a quarterfinalist at Eastbourne last week, improved to 4-6 this year. Two of his previous three defeats were at Eastbourne and the third was a win over Christopher O’ Connell in Doha.

A three-time finalist on the tour, Pospisil reached two of those finals in 2020 (in Montpellier and Sofia), but he is yet to win a title, having lost all three of the finals.

The 6’4″ Canadian right-hander, who won the Wimbledon doubles title with Jack Sock in 2014, was a quarterfinalist in the men’s singles event in 2015. Since that run, Pospisil had faced four consecutive first round defeats at the All England Club before ending that run in 2021.

Overall, Pospisil has a 19-25 record on grass and will look to keep the momentum going in the next round.

Tiafoe v Pospisil Prediction and Tip

Tiafoe will be high on confidence after overpowering the World No. 4 on Monday. And he will be the favourite to progress to the next round.
