Taylor Fritz

After a disappointing campaign in the Australian Open, Taylor Fritz has come back strongly in the Dallas Open. The home favorite has defeated two other compatriots in the tournament thus far.

Fritz received a bye into the second round where he faced Jack Sock. The world No. 8 was made to work hard by Sock. However, Fritz came out victorious in two sets 7-6 (7-5), 6-4. In the quarterfinals, Fritz took on 7th seed Marcos Giron. Fritz won a closely-contested first set before losing the second set. The decisive third set went Fritz’s way as he made it to the semifinals. He had a win percentage of 81 on the first serve and that held him in good stead in the encounter.

Wu Yibing

It has been a memorable campaign thus far for Wu Yibing. He became the first Chinese man to reach an ATP semifinal since 1995.

Wu Yibing

Yibing defeated Michael Mmoh in the round of 32 in three sets. The 23-year-old followed it up with a huge upset win against 3rd seed Denis Shapovalov.

Yibing managed to convert three out of three break points in the encounter.
