Fritz – Johnson / ATP Indian Wells – The first Masters 1000 series will be played in American Indian Wells. Last year’s winner of this tournament was J.M. Del Potro, who defeated Federer in the final match. This season, the first favorite to win the title is N. Djokovic, but there are still many tennis players who can join the trophy. Analyzes from this tournament will start with a duel between two US tennis players, which is T. Fritz and S. Johnson.
Fritz is one of the younger American tennis players, of whom the domestic public expects a good result. It’s a very good young player who has not yet proved his undeniable talent in the field. Fritz’s best career rankings reached just two months ago when he was the 40th player in the world. By the start of the Indian Wells tournament, this rating is somewhat weaker, and this American player is currently taking the 46th position of the ATP rankings.Up to this point, Fritz achieved a relatively modest score of four victories and the same number of defeats. In the past four years, his professional career failed to win the ATP title, and he was close to that goal in 2016 when he played the finals of the Memphis tournament. Then in the final match better than him was K. Nishikori. From the results of this season, we will qualify for the quarter-finals of the Auckland tournament and lose in the third round of the Australian Open by R. Federer.
Johnson is seven years older than his current opponent, and he has played the best career tennis two years ago when he reached the 21st position on the ATP rankings. Since then, Jonson has recorded a small, but constant decline in the form, and that’s why he came to Indian Wells as the 38th player in the world. In his previous career, Johnson managed to win four ATP titles, two of which were from the last season from the Newport and Houston tournaments.This season, Johnson has not made a significant result yet, as is his current ratio of three victories and five defeats. He opened the season with three consecutive defeats that he experienced in Auckland, Australian Open and New York. Thus, his first win in this season, Johnson won only the tournament in Delray Beach, where he reached the quarter-finals in which he was stopped by R. Albot. The last tournament before Indian Wells was played in Acapulco, where he was already stopped in second round by S. Wawrinka.
