Alexander Zverev v Lu Yen-hsun Head to Head

There have been two matches between Zverev and Yen-hsun before this and rather interestingly both have won one. Lu had defeated Zverev in a 2016 match at Toronto Masters while the German then won in Miami.

Zverev Starts off Confident

With two ATP titles already under his belt, Zverev will enter the first round at this Olympics with a lot of confidence. Especially given one of those titles came on the hard court surface of Acapulco and included a victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Even at the Australian Open played earlier, Zverev made it as far as the quarterfinals before the eventual winner Novak Djokovic took him down in four.

While clay is Zverev’s most preferred surface, at least from the point of his record, he hasn’t too badly on hard courts either. He has 159 wins to 83 defeats on that surface, with nine of his 15 titles also coming on hard courts.

So while Zverev didn’t have the best grass swing coming into this competition – he lost in the fourth round at Wimbledon – the German should have no worries against a player ranked 573rd in the world.

Yen-hsun’s Won Just One Match Since 2017

That’s correct. The Taipei player has barely played a lot of tennis but even when he has, Lu hasn’t won much.

Since his second round entry at the, coincidentally Tokyo Open in 2017, Lu has won a grand total of one match on the ATP circuit. That win came earlier this year in Miami where he won his opener against Sam Querrey.

His six other matches resulted in losses. Defeats in which Lu won just one set.

Which is why this is bit of a mismatch, and one that might have to be stopped if it was a boxing match. Question is if the sense of occasion, playing at the Olympics, could bring out the best in the 37-year-old veteran?

Zverev v Yen-hsun Prediction and Tip

These have to be the most lopsided odds for the entire first round with Zverev starting out 1/40 to win it. The better ones to look at is the games market, and we think even that could be an under 17.5 games given the nature of this contest.
