Taro Daniel vs Alexander Zverev – Match Predictions

As Taro Daniel and Alexander Zverev take the court on Friday, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Taro Daniel to Win at Least One Set

Alexander Zverev’s last match came at the Indian Wells Open round of 16, where he held his own against Daniil Medvedev in a three-hour marathon. The German has done really well considering he recently recovered from a major injury. However, it’s fair to point out that Zverev surrendered at least one set in three of his last four matches. On the other hand, Taro Daniel has been on an impressive run these past couple of months, winning nine of his last 11 singles matches. Bearing in mind that the Japanese player won at least one set in 10 of his last 11 matches, we are fairly confident that he won’t go down in straight sets today.

Over 21.5 Total Games

Our next prediction for this match is on the over/under games market. We would like to point out that Taro Daniel’s matches tend to go all the way to three sets. To be fair, his first round opponent in this competition had to retire due to an injury; but prior to that, he had played out three-setters in four of his previous five matches. In the same vein, Alexander Zverev is coming off back-to-back three-setters; and considering nine of his last 10 singles matches went over 21.5 games, we should expect the same today.

Taro Daniel vs Alexander Zverev Preview

Our Taro Daniel vs Alexander Zverev predictions have been established; and on that note, we would like to look at their recent performances.

Taro Daniel

After his impressive run at the Indian Wells Open, which saw him reach the round of 16 as a qualifier, Taro Daniel received a wild card into the Miami Open main draw. The Japanese player took on Arthur Rinderknech in the first round, but that match was cut short after his opponent sustained an injury. It’s fair to point out that Daniel has won nine of 11 matches prior to this fixture, and he’ll fancy his chances against Alexander Zverev.

Alexander Zverev

On the other hand, Zverev did not feature in the first round of this tournament. The former World number 2 has had a fairly good run of form recently, winning five of his last seven singles matches. Zverev will set his sights on a place in the third round as he faces Taro Daniel; it’ll be interesting to see how he’ll match-up against the Japanese player.

Taro Daniel vs Alexander Zverev Head to Head

Although both players are over 25, and have been on tour for a very long time, this will be their first meeting.
