Alexander Zverev v Daniil Medvedev Head to Head

The pair have played each other five times before, with Zverev leading their head to head series by four matches to one. However, whilst the Zverev wins all came in previous years, Medvedev did win their solitary meeting this year, in the final of the Shanghai Masters.

Zverev, Brought Back to Earth by Tsitsipas

Defending champion Zverev began the defence of his title with a highly impressive win over Rafael Nadal in straight sets on Monday night.

Yet hopes that he was rediscovering the form that had earned him the biggest title of his career to date in this event last year, were dealt a setback when he was convincingly beaten by the number six seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece on Wednesday.

Zverev began the match in the same vein that he had shown against Nadal, serving big and looking to put pressure on the Greek serve. He had chances to break in the fifth game of the first set, but, after a long struggle, Tsitsipas managed to hold.

Three games later he faltered on his own serve, and produced several loose shots which his opponent was able to capitalise on, forcing the break. Tsitsipas then clinched the set with ease, winning eleven out of the last thirteen points.

Any hopes of a fightback in the second set were dashed when he lost his opening service game, and then again surrendered his serve four games later, as his younger opponent wrapped up the match, booking his own semi-final place into the bargain.

However, all is not lost for the German. If he can beat Medvedev, he can still progress to the semi-final of the event at the expense of Nadal, whatever the Spaniard does in his final match, because of his better head-to-hear record.

Medvedev Might Leave London with Regrets

A dark horse for the title here before the tournament started, Medvedev now can no longer reach the knock-out stages having suffered two defeats in his opening two matches. And he will leave London thinking about what might have been, because the outcome of both games could have been very different.

On Monday, he lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas for the first time, in a match that had only one break of serve in it throughout, but which the Greek edged by being the more aggressive on the big points.

It was his defeat to Rafael Nadal on Wednesday afternoon though that is likely to cause him sleepless nights during the winter break. Medvedev took the first set on a tie-break, only for the Spaniard to fight back in the second to level the match. However, at the start of the third set, the Russian appeared in total control establishing first a 4-0 and then a 5-1 lead. And, in the next game, he forced a match point, only to Nadal to save it with a brilliant drop shot.

From that point on the tables turned, Nadal rediscovered his force, and winners came from both the forehand and backhand side with an ease that had been totally lacking before. When it went to a tie-break again, there could be only one winner.

Zverev v Medvedev Predictions & Tips

Medvedev is the slight favourite to win this match at 13/15, whilst Zverev is priced at 22/23. The Russian will want to go home with at least one win under his belt, but Zverev has more to play for, and still has a chance of defending his title. That motivation may be enough for him to produce the same level of tennis he showed in his match with Nadal.
