Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev – Match Predictions

Alacaraz dominated Zverev last year in the final and he is the favorite to win again since the German is still not in his best shape after the ankle injury.

Carlos Alcaraz -4.5

Carlos Alcaraz is the best player on the tour at the moment and he is having the support of the home crowd in Madrid. His confidence is sky-high and Zverev will stand no chance in this match. The German has beaten Alcaraz in the past numerous times, but simply their current form is on a totally different level. Zverev will not be able to keep on the pace with Alcaraz during the entire match and the Spaniard will win by covering the -4.5 games spread.

Over 21.5 games

Zverev has an excellent serve and he will need to have high percentage of first serve to stay long in this match. Zverev is aware that his chance of winning long points are slim so he will try to hold his serve which he will be able to do at least in one set. Despite the fact that Alcaraz will probably dominate, Zverev will put up a fight and take the match over 21.5 games.
