Our favourite Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev – match predictions

Alcaraz’s easy draw at the US Open saw his defeat 61-ranked Matteo Arnaldi to claim a place in the quarter-finals. On the other hand, Zverev had to battle it out with 6th-ranked Jannik Sinner to set a date with the Spanish prodigy.

Alexander Zverev to win @ 16/5 (4.20)

Despite holding a positive win/loss record against Alcaraz, Zverev heads into this match as the underdog. He showcased his class against Sinner, triumphing in an epic five-setter and will be gunning to give a similar account of his abilities against the Spaniard. This will be their third meeting on the hard courts, with the German ace triumphing in their previous encounters. Given his resilience and annoyance at being labelled as a sideshow for another Djokovic vs Alcaraz epic at Flushing Meadows, we expect Zverev to spoil the party and end Alcaraz’s US Open title defence.

Over 36.5 Games @ 87/100 (1.87)

Zverev is entering this fixture after a 46-game battle with Sinner. On the other hand, Alcaraz only needed 28 games to dispatch Arnaldi. The Spaniard will have to adjust to the higher level competition and will be surprised by the German’s proficiency on Flushing Meadows’ courts. Their last meeting in a Grand Slam was at Roland Garros where Zverev triumphed in 43 games and we believe a similarly extended battle awaits fans as they meet again.
