World No. 20 Taylor Fritz is a big favorite against world No. 99 Jaume Munar at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, and for good reason, even in their first career meeting.
While qualifier Munar is coming off an impressive upset victory over world No. 16 Pablo Carreno Busta, the 24-year-old Spaniard now takes on an excellent hard-court player in Fritz. Also 24, Fritz beat world No. 75 Kamil Majchrzak 6-1, 6-1 last round, has one of the best serves on the planet, and he continues to get better and better from the baseline. The 6'5" American also moves very well for a player his size. He really is becoming a complete player as he enters his prime, with injuries really being the only thing holding him back at this point.
