Andrey Rublev to win @ 19/20 (1.95)
A good case can be made for Alexander Zverev. He won the Chengdu Open just last month, and has 12 wins in his last 17 matches heading into this clash. However, it’s worth mentioning that the German player came into this tournament on the back of three consecutive losses.
Moreover, Zverev has faced Andrey Rublev eight times on the court; and while he won five of those encounters, recent clashes between these players have mostly been in Rublev’s favour. The Russian player won three of the last four skirmishes between these two. Considering Rublev won seven of his last eight matches, we believe he’ll emerge victorious at the end of this match.
Two total sets @ 4/7 (1.57)
We’ve established that these players previously met eight times. It may interest you to know that all of those clashes ended in minimum sets. That said, these players have both been involved in a lot of two-setters lately.
On one hand, seven of Andrey Rublev’s last eight matches ended in two sets. Likewise, Alexander Zverev is coming off five consecutive two-setters. All things considered, whoever wins this match should do so in straight sets.
