Total Set: 3

None of these players’ head-to-head encounters have gone at least one extra set. All of the matches were decided in straight sets.

On this occasion, we believe the clash will be quite equally matched because both have similar clay performances. Rublev and Zverev both have 15 wins on this surface. Based on these considerations, I believe we will enjoy three sets.

Rublev to Win

Andrey Rublev won the Monte Carlo Open. He also easily overcame Rublev in their prior meeting. The German tennis player struggled in the first round, losing a set to Alex Molcan.

Rublev became world number five in 2021 and has remained close to this position ever since due to his good results. Zverev completed last season inconsistently and has started this season similarly. Alexander Rublev will win again, is my second prediction.

Alexander Zverev

The last year has not been kind to the German tennis star, who has dropped from world number 2 to 19th in the ATP rankings. He has already won 28 matches this season after two victories at the Bastad Open.

He defeated Slovakian Alex Molcan in three sets in the first round. Subsequently, he had a better showing against Brazilian Thiago Moura Monteiro. On this occasion, Zverev converted a total of five break points and did not lose a single serve in the entire match.

Andrey Rublev

The 25-year-old made his debut with a convincing victory over Pavel Kotov. Rublev missed his opening serve in the first set, but subsequently converted two break points to win the set.

After losing one of his serves in the second phase, Andrey converted his third breakpoint of the match and finished with a tiebreak triumph. It’s worth noting that Rublev won 75% of his first serves.

Zverev vs Rublev Head to Head

For the past nine years, the two players have frequently faced off. Between 2016 and 2021, they played five matches, all of which Alexander Zverev won. The fact that he won all of his matches in straight sets was a highlight.

They met again this year, at the semi-finals in Dubai. Andrey Rublev got his revenge this time, winning in two sets. They previously met in the final of Cincinnati 2021, which Zverev won.
