The United Cup 2024 is set to witness an intense showdown as longstanding rivals Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev cross paths in a pivotal playoff match, reigniting their fierce competition on the global stage. Fans will be advised to brace themselves for a tennis spectacle as the duo are ready to add another chapter to their storied history and determine supremacy in this crucial group encounter.

Our favourite Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Alexander Zverev – match predictions

Tsitsipas returned to winning ways after a dismal run in the 2023 ATP Finals. He has a tough task on his hands in this United Cup fixture with Zverev brimming with confidence as he continues his injury comeback without any major issues.

Alexander Zverev to win @ 57/100 (1.57)

Zverev is the bookmakers’ favourite to triumph and with good reason. Despite his lopsided record against Tsitsipas, he is the one who impressed on the tour and will be aiming to turn the tables and clinch a vital victory. Considering Tsitsipas’s current fitness challenges which came up in his mixed doubles outing against Canada, we expect Zverev to run through him for his fifth victory against him.

Over 23.5 Games @ 1/1 (2.00)

The last four matches between Tsitsipas and Zverev have been in ATP 1000 events. Zverev has only won one of these meetings while the others have gone in the Greek maestro’s favour. Only one of these fixtures has seen less than 23 games and it was at the beginning of this recent journey of their matchups. While the German is the favourite, we do not expect Tsitsipas to be a pushover, who will be testing his limits with the Australian Open around the corner. Expect an intense clash, as we anticipate a hard-fought duel requiring more than 23.5 games to determine the triumphant player.

Tsitsipas vs Zverev odds

The bookmakers paint a compelling picture as Zverev emerges as the favourite with a 66.2% chance of securing victory, showcasing his impressive form and resilience throughout the tournament. On the opposing end, Tsitsipas faces the challenge with a 39.2% chance of winning, emphasizing the competitive nature of the encounter.
