Alexander Zverev v Juan Ignacio Londero Head to Head
The pair have never met before.
Zverev, Current World Ranking under Threat
Zverev has long been tipped as the next player to win a major title, especially after he won the ATP Finals in London last November. However, the world number three has had a very underwhelming year so far, apart from Acapulco, where he lost in the final to Nick Kyrgios.
Instead, most of the tournaments he has entered this year have seen him consistently fail to justify his seeding, and there have been too many early exits from events on his record – Indian Wells, Miami, Marrakesh, Monte Carlo, and Barcelona are just recent examples.
Back on home soil and playing in an event which he has won for the past two years, he desperately needs a run deep into this tournament, not only to give him a boost of much needed confidence, but also to gain points to protect his world ranking of three, which is under threat from Roger Federer and Dominic Thiem.
Londero, Maiden Title Winner in Cordoba
The world number 80, Londero, has gone one better than Zverev this year in that he has actually win a trophy, the Cordoba Open in February, which he entered as a wildcard. That was his first ever ATP senior title, and saw him reach a career high ranking of 64.
Nothing the 25 year old has done before, or since, in 2019 has matched that level of achievement. He did not qualify for the main draws in either Indian Wells or Miami, and was beaten in the first round in both Monte Carlo and Barcelona.
However, he did give himself a confidence boost in Munich on Tuesday by beating German wildcard Maximilian Marterer in the first round, despite dropping the second set.
Zverev v Londero Predictions & Tips
Zverev will start odds-on favourite at 4/25, whilst Londero is priced at 209/50. The German has been in poor form of late but, playing in an event which he has won for the past two years, and in front of his home fans, should have far too much for his Argentine opponent.
