One of the most anticipated quarter-finals of the men’s singles in the Italian Open is about to unfold. My tennis predictions today will focus on this match, of course, but will it be Zverev or Fritz who reaches the semi-final? Find out below.

Our favourite Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz predictions

In my opinion, Zverev is one of the best in the world on clay when he’s feeling it. Now, I wouldn’t say the same for Fritz, but he’s been as consistent as they come this season on the red dirt. Furthermore, he’s looked solid throughout the 2024 Italian Open, which is why I’ve come up with the following predictions for this clash:

Fritz to win @ 13/10 (2.30)

As the underdog, I see real value in picking Taylor Fritz to beat Zverev here. He has dispatched three great players to reach the quarter-finals already. And while Zverev has also looked decent, he’s certainly vulnerable against a player like Fritz.

Three total sets @ 11/10 (2.10)

To be perfectly honest, this match could go either way. However, I’ve picked Fritz based on his overall form this season, as well as his individual performances in Rome to reach this point. But there is every chance that this one could go the distance too, and with the odds associated with this market, I’m covering this one as my second pick.

Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz odds

The latest odds confirm that Zverev has a 64.50% chance here, while Fritz has a 43.50% probability of coming out on top in this match. 

Can Fritz even the score against Zverev in Rome?

Now you’ve had a chance to digest my predictions for this game, let me move on to discuss each of these guys before this game begins.

Alexander Zverev preview

Zverev is a truly great clay court player, but his form has been up and down during the 2024 clay court swing. In fact, when he’s played someone as highly ranked as Fritz, he has usually finished second best. But he has looked better in Rome compared with the previous Masters 1000 clay court events, to his credit.

Taylor Fritz preview

After making the semi-finals of the Madrid Open, Fritz came to the Italian capital and backed up that run in style. He dispatched Fognini and Korda in straight sets on the clay this week, and he beat a quality player in the form of Dimitrov in round four. Because of this, he certainly looks like a man on a mission, and he’s beaten Zverev three times before.

Zverev vs Fritz head to head

As it stands, Zverev has a very slight lead over Fritz in the head-to-head department. He has a 4-3 advantage over the American, yet they’ve never played on clay. Additionally, Fritz destroyed Zverev in their most recent meeting in 2023, which could carry some weight coming into this match.
