Alexander Zverev v Andrey Rublev Head to Head
The pair have played each other three times before, with Zverev winning on every occasion, firstly in Monaco in 2017, and again, a year later, in Beijing. Their most recent meeting came at the Shanghai Masters last year, the German winning in straight sets.
Zverev Trying to Reach First Melbourne Quarter-Final
For a man tipped as a prospective major winner, Zverev has a surprisingly poor record in Grand Slams, two quarter-finals in Paris the best he has managed to date.
After a very disappointing season last year, which saw him largely fail to capitalise on the potential he showed when winning the ATP finals at the end of 2018, the 22 year old German will be keen to get his career back on track, and a run deep into this tournament will be a major confidence booster for the season ahead.
Certainly it has been plain sailing for him so far in this tournament, with three consecutive three set victories under his belt. He began by defeating Marco Cecchinato of Italy, and then Egor Gerasimov of Belarus. In his most recent match on Saturday, he brushed aside the challenge of Fernando Verdasco of Spain in their third round match.
Rublev In the Best Form of His Budding Career
Rublev is in the form of his life. Having won his first career title at Umag in 2017, it took him another two years to claim his second, in Moscow last September. Yet, in less than a month this year, he has already doubled that number of titles, winning in both Doha and Adelaide last week.
Those victories have helped propel him to a new high world ranking of 16, and he has now won 15 singles matches in a row, in a sequence stretching back to last year.
That run includes the three matches he has won so far in Melbourne, although his opening match with the Australian wildcard Christopher O’Connell was not without its difficulties. He dropped the second set to love to the world 103, before rallying to take the next two.
Yuichi Sugita of Japan offered less of a challenge, and he was beaten in straight sets, but Rublev saved his best performance of the tournament so far for Saturday, knocking out the number 11 seed David Goffin, coming from a set down to defeat the Belgian.
Alexander Zverev v Andrey Rublev Predictions & Tips
Despite the fact that Zverev has won all of their previous encounters, Rublev must be in with a chance of upsetting the odds and reaching the quarter-finals here for the first time. He is in supreme form, and, although Zverev has yet to drop a set in Melbourne, he has not yet come across an opponent of the calibre of Rublev.
