Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev: Preview
What Novak Djokovic playing tennis on the court since the last 2 years is scary sometimes. He’s almost perfect and is ticking every box to claim himself as the greatest of all time. Statistically, he shares that with Federer and Nadal but many would argue that he really is GOAT- in every respect. He had one of the most dominant seasons in tennis history – where he won three Grand Slams and was just one match away from completing the schedule.
While he dominated more than 5 sets, many were able to penetrate his defense in a match that lasted 3 sets. In addition to the majors, he won only 2 titles this year – Belgrade and Bercy. But this week in Turin, he still hasn’t dropped a set. He defeated Casper Ruud in the first match and blew the past away Andrey Rublev in his next match to secure a place in the semi-finals. His results in the third game against Cameron Norrie are irrelevant as he has already topped his group.
In the midst of a spectacular year, a significant loss at the Tokyo Olympics will haunt him. The loss comes at the hand of Alexander Zverev– his opponent in the semi-finals. Zverev is probably the most consistent player this season after Djokovic. The German has reached the semi-finals in three grand slams and has won two masters titles – Madrid and Cincinnati. He also won an Olympic gold medal in Tokyo.
In Turin this week, he beat Matteo Berrettini in his first match and then lost to Daniil Medvedev in a three-set thriller. He then overcame Hubert Hurkacz in straight sets of 6-2,6-4 to date Djokovic.
Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev: Head to head
This will be the 11th meeting between the duo. Djokovic leads H2H 7-3. They last met at the US Open earlier this year, where Djokovic won in five sets.
Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev: Prediction
Like the last 2 meetings, this meeting is also expected to be a hit and will most likely come down to the gap. Fast courts will accommodate Djokovic’s movement but will also add extra support to Zverev’s serve. The German will definitely want his serve up against Djokovic – the all-time great comeback. Expect lots of long rallies to go Djokovic’s way while Zverev will win short rallies. In the end, Djokovic will once again have enough underdogs to overtake Zverev.
Guess: Djokovic won in three sets.
