Alexander Zverev v Dominic Thiem Head to Head

The pair have played each other seven times before, with Thiem leading their head-to-head series by five matches to two. Their last two matches both came last year though – Zverev winning the final in Madrid, whilst Thiem was victorious in the quarter-final at Roland Garros.

Zverev Ended Nadal’s Hopes with Defeat of Medvedev

Defending champion Zverev has chosen this event again to find his best form, after struggling to find his best form for much of the year. He began his campaign at the O2 Arena with a highly impressive straight sets win against the number one seed, Rafael Nadal on Tuesday, dominating the match with his serve, and playing with a level of intensity that the Spaniard just could not match.

His momentum though was checked in his next match with the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, and it was the number six seed though he secured an early advantage and then consolidated it to seal a comparatively easy victory.

That meant that, to progress, he needed to beat the number four seed Daniil Medvedev of Russia on Friday night. A solitary break enabled him to clinch the first set, and them, with no further breaks, it went to a tie-break in the second. Zverev finally secured a mini-break and clinched the match, in the process eliminating Nadal from the tournament.

Thiem, First Man into the Semi-Finals

Austrian Thiem, the number five seed was the first man to book his place in the semi-finals by beating two of the “Big Three” in the form of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. He upset Federer in straight sets with a controlled display of hitting, and then, in arguably the match of the tournament so far, came from behind to edge out Djokovic in a three setter, decided in a tie-break.

Perhaps the effort of those two matches took its toll in the third group match on Thursday, as he was beaten in straight sets by the Italian Matteo Berrettini , who had already been knocked out of the event by that stage.

Thiem’s supporters will be hoping their man was just conserving his energy for the knock-out stages.

Zverev v Thiem Predictions & Tips

Thiem has the superior head-to-head record and is the highest seeded player, so will start as the marginal favourite to win this match at 13/15, whilst Zverev is priced at 1/1.

However, the German has a special affinity for this event and, having won it last year, has produced two of his best performances of 2019 this week as he looks to defend his crown. Having found form tight at the last, he must have another good chance of another final appearance.
