Alexander Zverev v David Goffin Head to Head
The two players have met twice, with Zverev winning both times in the final set. However, both meetings were on clay, at Munich and Monte Carlo respectively.
Zverev Increasing In Confidence With Return to Form
Alexander Zverev was tipped as the possible leader of the pack among the ‘Next Gen’ of players earmarked to take over the mantle from Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. With three Masters 1000 under his belt, as well as the ATP Tour Final winner in 2018, and ranked world number three at the time, Zverev was noted as one to look out for in 2019.
2019 has been a disappointing year for Zverev with a string Alexander Zverev has had a string of disappointing early round losses in 2019, through the hard court and clay season.
A victory at the ATP 250 in Geneva and a quarterfinal performance at the French Open with a loss to Novak Djokovic, Zverev has looked to be getting back to form and ready for the grass season. Despite an early first round loss to Dustin Brown on the grass at Stuttgart last week, Zverev has won 10 out of his last 12 matches and looked more reassured with every passing match.
Zverev who has performed well at Halle in the past has put in two convincing performance against Robin Haase and Steve Johnson resulting in straight set victories. Zverev’s next opponent is Belgian David Goffin
A convincing performance in the first round here at Halle, with a straight sets win against Dutchman Robin Haase (who has troubled Zverev in the past), will be an added boost to his confidence, as he hopes for a deep run this week.
Goffin Looking for Resurgence on the Circuit
David Goffin was ranked 7th in the world after being a finalist at the ATP year end finals in London in 2017, a tournament where he beat both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The last year and a half or so for Goffin has been a mix of recurring injuries, time off from the game and disappointing early losses at tournaments, resulting in him being ranked number 30 at the moment.
The Belgian is an offensive baseliner with strong groundstrokes off both wings, a good return of serve and a solid double handed backhand. He has also reached the round of 16 or better at all four majors.
Goffin is in the process of resurging his career post injuries in search of more consistent results. He has had two good wins in the tournament already against Guido Pella and Radu Albot, but the challengers get sterner here on.
Zverev v Goffin Predictions & Tips
The matches have been a battle of groundstrokes and rallies, given both their strengths at the baseline. However, the matchup should be different on the grass- with Zverev’s powerful game and serve coming more into play. Goffin has looked good this week and has the array of strokes to keep Zverev at bay. However, on grass, and with recently acquired confidence again, Zverev will start as favorite. Expect Zverev to win a good three set battle.
