Emil Ruusuvuori vs Alexander Zverev – Match Predictions
With the most exciting matches being played at the BNP Paribas Open, we know you’re searching for the best value. That’s why we dig into every detail surrounding the best tennis players in the world. In this way, we offer you real data and pick objectively. To set the right bet for Emil Ruusuvuori vs Alexander Zverev, read our free predictions and tips for this match
Emil Ruusuvuori to Not Lose in Straight Sets
We would like to start by pointing out that Alexander Zverev recently recovered from an ankle injury, and still isn’t at 100 percent yet. Although the German player impressed at the Dubai event a couple of weeks ago, reaching the semi-final, we don’t think he’ll win this match in straight sets.
The most important reason for this is; the only other time these players met, Emil Ruusuvuori was an even bigger underdog than he is today, and he still defeated Zverev, surrendering just four games in the final two sets. With that in mind we believe that Ruusuvuori can, and should be able to take a set off Zverev.
Ruusuvuori to Cover + 3.5 Games
With our first prediction in mind, we are also taking Ruusuvuori to cover +3.5 games. The 23 year old defeated Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets a couple of days ago, and he’s yet to drop a set in this tournament. Emil Ruusuvuori is coming into this match with a lot of confidence, and we believe he’ll keep this match close enough to cover this line.
Emil Ruusuvuori vs Alexander Zverev Preview
How have these players fared so far in this tournament? Let’s take a look at their recent form.
Emil Ruusuvuori defeated Constant Lestienne and Roberto Bautista Agut in the previous two rounds of this competition. Interestingly, the 23 year old hasn’t surrendered a set so far. Ruusuvuori will have his work cut out for him as he takes on Alexander Zverev on Sunday. Can he withstand the former World number 2?
After his first round bye, Alexander Zverev squared off against Pedro Cachin in the second round of this tournament. As expected, it was business as usual for the German, as he took out his opponent in two short sets. Zverev will be eyeing a fourth round spot as he faces Ruusuvuori, and he’ll fancy his chances against the 23 year old.
