Alexander Zverev vs Daniil Medvedev – match predictions

As Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev go toe-to-toe with each other on Thursday, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Daniil Medvedev to come out on top

It may interest you to know that this will be the 17th clash between these players in just the last seven years. Alexander Zverev initially dominated this match-up, winning the first four skirmishes between these players. However, the German player has lost 10 of 12 meetings with Medvedev since then, including all of their last four encounters. Granted, Alexander Zverev has enjoyed some fine form these past few weeks. However, considering his recent struggles against today’s opponent, we are backing Daniil Medvedev to win this match.

At least 23 total games

We would like to point out that these players already met three times this year, and two of those clashes ended in maximum sets. That said, although Medvedev has dominated recent encounters between these players, he surrendered at least one set in four of his last six meetings with Alexander Zverev. Given how well the German has been playing lately, we believe that this match will go all the way to three sets, and should go over 22.5 games.

As it stands, the German player has eight wins in his last nine singles matches; it’ll be interesting to see if he can snap his losing streak against Daniil Medvedev today.

Daniil Medvedev

Being the number three seed, Daniil Medvedev didn’t feature in the first round of the Cincinnati Open. He played his first match against Lorenzo Musetti, defeating the Italian in straight sets. Medvedev will set his sights on a quarter-final spot, and he’ll fancy his chances against Alexander Zverev.
