Alexander Zverev v Stefanos Tsitsipas Tiafoe Head to Head
Zverev, Defending Champion Needs to Find His Form
Despite reaching the final in Acapulco, Zverev has largely had a year to forget, and has now lost his coveted world number three ranking after his failure to defend his title in Munich last week. Now looking to defend a second title in successive weeks, the German desperately needs to find some form here in Spain, and made a good start by bringing an end to the storied career of David Ferrer in the second round.
However, he was made to work very much harder in the third round by Hubert Hurkacz of Poland, and had to come from a set down to win the match, and it was his ability to cope better with the big points that saw him through in the end.
Tsitsipas Looking to Extend His Winning Streak
Following his run in Portugal, he has won his two matches so far in Madrid in straight sets, easing past Adrian Mannarino of France, and then Fernando Verdasco of Spain on Thursday. That win drew him level with Daniil Medvedev’s record of singles wins this year, and he will be looking to extend that run on Friday.
Zverev v Tsitsipas Predictions & Tips
This match is very hard to call: Zverev is priced at 49/50, with the Greek is 23/25 according to the bookmakers. The German is the defending champion, but Tsitsipas is really the man in form out of the two. It has all the makings of a classic encounter, but Tsitsipas must be favoured to make the semi-finals here.
Tip: Tsitsipas to win in three sets: 13/4 (888Sport)
