Zverev to Win 2-0

In the last three years the careers of the two players have gone in opposite directions. While Zverev has established himself as an elite player, Thiem has been relegated out of the top 100 of the ATP rankings and only recently re-entered.

The German player has almost twice as many wins as his next opponent. We prefer Alexander to win in 2 sets, taking into account that in the last 6 years Dominic played only 5 times on grass and lost 4 times.

Under 22.5 Total Games  

The only head-to-head in the last 3 years ended 6-3 6-4. 3 of Zverev’s 5 wins at the French Open have come in straight sets, which is remarkable considering that at the Grand Slam they have to win three sets for each match. We expect this match to be short and to be resolved in less than 22.5 games.

Take a look at a great Alexander Zverev vs Dominic Thiem preview, and take note of more tennis matches predictions

Alexander Zverev

The German tennis player had an inconsistent start to the season, which improved in the clay court tournaments. Zverev went from a negative record to 21 wins and 15 losses.

Zverev confirmed his great form at the recent Roland Garros, where he won 5 times to reach the semi-finals. At this stage, he was completely outclassed by the Norwegian Casper Ruud, who won in straight sets. Little by little, the 26-year-old is regaining his style of play of the previous year when he was world number 2.

Dominic Thiem

The veteran tennis player has not been performing well in recent months, in fact in the clay court season he finished with a record of 12 wins and 12 losses. So far the 29-year-old has 12 wins and 16 losses.

Recently, Thiem had a brief appearance at the Perugia Challenger, where he was knocked out without winning a single game. Dominic started by winning the first set against Stefano Travaglia, but the Italian turned the score around to knock out the Austrian.

Zverev vs Thiem Head to Head

They had their first meeting 8 years ago and since then they have played each other a total of 11 times. Both have had the opportunity to play against each other on different types of surfaces, but the first time they will face each other on a grass court will be at the Halle Open Open 2023.

Two years ago they last met at the Mutua Madrid Open. In that year, Thiem was world number 3 but his career was in decline due to constant injuries. The Austrian tennis player leads the series with 8 wins to 3 for the German player.
