Reilly Opelka v Taro Daniel Head to Head
This will be the second meeting between Opelka and Daniel, with Opelka currently leading the H2H 1-0. Their last meeting occurred on the hard courts of Sydney in 2019, with Opelka winning 6-7(5) 6-4 6-4.
Opelka Impressive on the Hard Courts
Opelka reached a career high of 19 less than a month ago, and currently sits at 24th in the live rankings. The American possesses a 19-18 W/L ratio for the year, with 13 of these wins coming on hard courts.
The 24-year-old impressed on the hard courts of Toronto in August making it all the way to the final. He scored some impressive wins along the way defeating Kyrgios, Dimitrov, Harris, Bautista Agut and Tsitsipas along the way, falling at the final to Medvedev in the final 6-4 6-3.
Opelka carried his form to the US Open reaching the 4th round, defeating Kwon, Musetti, and Basilashvili all in straight sets before losing to Harris in 4 sets.
Opelka also managed to make a deep run on the clay courts of Rome, reaching the last 4 before taking an expected defeat to Nadal 6-4 6-4. This run included getting the better off Gasquet, Musetti, Karatsev, and Delbonis without dropping a set.
Daniel Seeking Hard Court Wins
Daniel has managed to muster just 7 wins on hard courts this year, in comparison to 21 wins on clay courts, displaying the acrylic is not his favourite surface.
Nonetheless, Daniel has reached 4 semi-finals this year including one on the ATP circuit. In Belgrade, the 28-year-old reached the last 4 and made the most of his Lucky Loser opportunity after losing to Mager in the final round of qualifying. Daniels defeated Sousa, Millman, and Delbonis before losing to Berrettini in three sets.
Daniel has successfully reached the last 4 in Sultan, Oeiras, and Lyon, but failing to reach the final hurdle on all 3 occasions. Lyon was his most recent semi-final run, losing to Ymer 6-4 6-2 after defeating Collarini, Fratangelo, and Altmaier prior.
Opelka v Daniel Prediction and Tip
This will likely be a tough battle for both players, however, Opelka will likely advance to the next round due to his solid serving which will make it incredibly difficult for Daniel to create break point opportunities.
