Third seed Ben Shelton will take on seventh seed Jordan Thompson in the quarterfinals of the Dallas Open 2024 on Saturday.

He entered the Dallas Open on the back of a disappointing third-round exit at the Australian Open 2024. The youngster breezed past Micheal Mmoh in his opening encounter 6-3, 6-3 and is one of the favorites to lift the title in Dallas.

Thompson entered the Dallas Open on the back of a second-round exit in Melbourne. He outclassed the likes of Adam Neff and Denis Kudla en route to the last eight. The Australian cruised past Kudla in the second round 6-1, 6-1.

Shelton and Thompson will face off in the quarterfinals of the Dallas Open on Friday. It will be a mouthwatering contest as both players possess the quality to put up a vigorous performance. Considering their recent results at the highest level, Shelton will be the favorite to make it through to the semi-final.

Shelton is making a significant impact on the men’s tour, reaching the last four at the US Open despite a rough season. His fiery serve and accurate forehand can cause problems for opponents, and he must be ready to make in-game adjustments and showcase his versatility.

Thompson, who started the year with a successful semifinal finish at the Brisbane International, will be confident in his chances of achieving a result in this bout. The Australian will be aware of the challenge that lies ahead and will need to put up a flawless performance to get a result.

Thompson’s well-rounded game will present a stern challenge for Shelton in the quarterfinals, but the American should be able to show some character and use his elite skill set to solve this riddle.

Pick: Shelton to win in straight sets.
