Default Taylor Harry Fritz

Might as well start a thread for him.

Taylor Harry Fritz
Age:17 (28 Oct 1997)
Height: 6-4+ (was said to be 6-3 last year)
Plays: Right Handed (Double Handed Backhand)

Current Junior Ranking: 13
Current ATP Ranking: 1132

Probably our best 1997 prospect. Won the Osaka Mayor's Cup - World Super Junior Tennis Championships in October, made semifinals of Wimbledon this year. Received qualifying wc into the USO (Men) so the USTA obviously thinks very highly of him. Some of our fellow twitter friends who saw him at the open said he kinda reminded them of Sampras (with a two handed backhand). Taylor has a big serve, forehand, and a decent backhand that can do damage crosscourt. He might have the biggest serve of all of our prospects. Served 133 mph at Jr Wimbledon as a 16yo. His best surface is hard court (likes grass). Like most Californians, doesn't have a lot of experience on clay (weakest surface).

He is from a tennis family. His mom (Kathy May) is a former Top 10 pro and his dad (Guy Fritz) also played professionally. Guy is his main coach.

A little bit about his family background.

Quote:
Taylor Fritz comes from tennis royalty and a true tennis dynasty. Taylor’s maternal grandfather had a drive and lifelong passion to support tennis in every and any fashion needed. David May was a scion to the Wilbur May fortune of the May company department stores. David could talk tennis all day. All night. And well you get it. He loved it. He Had a passion for watching , playing or developing talent. He loved Lovey cause she brought him stats and interviews from the U.S. Open. He loved Global Chick because she shared his passion as well he loved Tory Fretz ,Who doesn’t.

He loved all of his daughters Anita and Kathy May. Anita was a fierce competitor. Kathy May was a top Tenner. Alicia May had a nice career. Tommie played a little , not sure about Amanda and not sure who we forgot. Tony Trabert was around the family court often as was the amazing Pancho Segura and Gene Malin.

Let’s talk about Taylor. We know he is still growing. We know he wins sportsmanship awards. We know Marty Mulligan has him wearing FILA. We know Amy has him using HEAD rackets and Solinco supplies some string. We know Taylor hasn’t even begun honing his skills. He is a green rookie . He came thru qualies out in Roehampton. He really has worked his way thru all his matches in this event with great skill and resilience. .

His dad guy Fritz coached at the college of the desert and worked with the very talented Abe Hewko. ( currently in college , Boise ?BSU. You’ll hear about him some day )

Good luck to Taylor, hope he can finish the year inside the top 10. Will be tough though since all the major upcoming events are on clay.

XXVIII Yucatan Cup

R1 Taylor FRITZ (USA) [2] 6-3 6-2 Benjamin SIGOUIN (CAN)
R2 Taylor FRITZ (USA) [2] 6-0 6-2 Agustin SACCO (ARG)
R3 Taylor FRITZ (USA) [2] 6-4 5-7 7-5 Lucas KOELLE (BRA)
QF Taylor FRITZ (USA) [2] 6-3 4-6 6-4 Ulises BLANCH (USA)
SF Taylor FRITZ (USA) [2] vs Mikael YMER (SWE) [4]

By reaching the semis, he should move up to No.12 in the ranking. Also into the semis of the doubles with Rublev.

I'm not a fan of his shirt biting habit but it is easy to identify him on the stream when there are no close-up cameras.

Some pictures from early in the week.

Even with a loss tomorrow, Fritz will move up to #10 in the rankings, and he's effectively 8th in the world since both Tiafoe and Kamil Majchrzak will fall below him before the end of the year due to the fact that they aren't playing the Eddie Herr or Orange Bowl. Kozlov will lose a lot of points as well if he goes out early at the Orange Bowl.

Opportunities for others to get points with Kozlov, Tiafoe, and Fritz not playing the Eddie Herr.

I just want Taylor to finish inside the top 10 so he can be eligible for JE --> freeing some USTA wildcards for other players

No worries. Opelka, Blumberg, Paul, et al. will pick up those points.

At what events do top-10 juniors receive exemptions?

Fritz def. Rublev 6-4, 6-3! On red clay!

I didn't watch every point, and the quality of the stream wasn't great, but Fritz looked super sharp. Very few errors. I'm not sure any junior would have beaten him tonight.

Edit: Fritz avenged losses to Rublev in the third round of the U.S. Open and the SF of Roehampton.
