Alexander Zverev v Lloyd Harris Head to Head
Zverev is 2-0 against the Harris, beating the South African at Cologne-1 last year and in Cincinnati this year.
Zverev Ends Sinner’s Challenge
The world No. 4 extended his win streak to 15 matches as he knocked out the 13th seed Jannik Sinner in the fourth round of the U.S. Open on Monday.
The German, who captured the gold at the Tokyo games and won the title in Cincinnati, last lost in the fourth round of Wimbledon against Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Such has been the German’s dominance that in the 15-match streak, Zverev has dropped just three sets, one against Novak Djokovic in the Tokyo semifinal, another against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Cincinnati semifinal and a third against Jack Sock in the third round of the U.S. Open.
On Monday, Zverev struck 17 aces and 37 winners on his way to a 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (9-7) victory.
Serving at 5-6 in the third set, the fourth seed faced two set points at 15-40, but he managed to save both and send the set into a tiebreak. The Italian took a 4-6 lead in the tiebreak, but once again failed to convert either of the two set points. He had one more at 6-7 but Zverev was determined to finish it in three, and he eventually did, capitalising on the match point at 8-7.
While the third set was a bit of a stretch, Zverev had little problem in the first two, getting a break in each.
The 2020 U.S. Open runner-up had begun this year’s campaign with a straight sets win over America’s Sam Querrey in the first round and followed it up with another straight sets win against Albert Ramos-Vinolas. He was troubled by Jack Sock in the third round, but the American eventually retired with an injury while trailing one set to two.
Harris Outshines Opelka
Lloyd Harris out-aced Reilly Opelka in the battle of big-servers, overcoming a first-set deficit and reaching the quarterfinals of a major for the first time in his career.
The South African served 36 aces to Opelka’s 24 and struck 62 winners against the American’s 49 to take the two-hour-and-31-minute contest 6-7 (6-8), 6-4, 6-1, 6-3.
Converting six of 17 break points and saving one of two, Harris won 136 of the 238 points in the match. He also kept the unforced errors in check, making just 16 of them in the entire match.
Harris, who won two matches at a Grand Slam for the first time at the Australian Open this year, was a finalist in Dubai this year, but just like his only other final in Adelaide last year, he couldn’t deliver the finishing touch.
He has enjoyed great success at the Flushing Meadows this year, defeating three seeded players en route the last eight. Beginning with a five-set win over 25th seed Karen Khachanov, Harris raced past the Ernesto Escobedo in round 2.
He continued his impressive run in the third round, upsetting seventh seed Denis Shapovalov in straight sets and then knocked out the 22nd seed Opelka on Monday. Next up is the fourth seed, can he keep the winning run going?
Zverev v Harris Prediction and Tip
Zverev hasn’t lost to Harris yet, but given the form that the World No. 46 has displayed in this tournament, he will make things difficult for the German.
Expect Zverev to keep the streak going but he may need more than three sets to accomplish that.
