Alexander Zverev v Frances Tiafoe Head to Head
This will be the seventh meeting between both players, with Zverev leading the head-to-head 5-1, with Tiafoe’s only win coming in the 2017 Cincinnati Masters in a decider.
Zverev Continues Good Run
It has been a consistent season for Alexander Zverev, winning titles at Acupulco and Madrid, as well as making the quarters at the Aussie Open and semis at the French.
While his Wimbledon run may have been less than optimal, things took a positive turn for him thereafter.
Zverev won the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, defeating Novak Djokovic en route and looked in ominous form winning the Cincinnati Masters defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev in the latter stages.
Zverev was on a 16 match winning streak heading into the USOpen semi-finals where he fell short against Novak Djokovic in a five set battle.
After a successful Laver Cup, Zverev returned to the circuit at Indian Wells and looked good for the title before losing out to Taylor Fritz in the quarter-finals after having been in a position of strength having had match points on his own serve.
The second seed German has had a mixed run this week, starting with a straight set win against Filip Krajinovic but then prevailing in tricky deciders against both Alex DeMinaur and Felix Auger-Aliassime to set up a semi-final encounter with rising Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz.
Alcaraz was on a good run having defeated Andy Murray and Matteo Berrettini this week, but it was clinical Zverev in the semis, resulting in a straight sets win for the number two seed and a spot in the title round match on Sunday.
Biggest Final Of Tiafoe’s Career
Frances Tiafoe maybe often regarded as inconsistent and unable to live up to the hype around him, but he has been pulling off some impactful results in recent times. The American did well to defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Wmbledon opener and then Canadian Denis Shapovalov at the Canadian Masters earlier this summer.
A good run at the US Open followed where he made the round of 16 defeating number five seed Andrey Rublev enroute, before falling to semi-finalist Felix Auger Aliassime.
The Indian Wells Masters saw him defeat Benoit Paire and Sebastian Korda convincingly before falling to Next Gen Pole Hubert Hurkacz. Tiafoe was also involved in one of the matches of the year in the opening round at Antwerp last week, where he lost in a 3hr 45 minute thriller to former world number one on a comeback, Andy Murray.
A stacked draw at Vienna here this week saw Tiafoe surprisingly having to play qualifiers. But, the American came through convincingly and then won a straight setter in his opener of the main draw against Serb Dusan Lajovic.
It has been a good week for Tiafoe who made a valiant comeback against Stefaos Tsitsipas in the second round here and followed it with an authoritative straight sets win over Diego Schwartzman in the quarter-finals.
Tiafoe was up against Italian Jannik Sinner in the semis who has been on an impressive run himself since the US Open, winning titles in Sofia and Antwerp as well as breaking into the top ten of the ATP rankings.
Sinner looked well placed for a win as he continued to solidify his quest for a spot at the Tour Finals in Turin winning the first set 6-3 and up 5-2 in the second. However, he was unable to serve out the match as Tiafoe upped the level of play and won five consecutive games in a row to win the set 7-5.
The American carried the momentum into the final set against a visibly rattled and fatigued Sinner, and broke the Italian’s serve twice as he closed the set 6-2 and booked a place in the biggest final of his career.
Zverev v Tiaoe Prediction and Tip
Tiafoe is undoubtedly in the biggest final of his career and has recorded some impressive wins this week. However, he is up against one of the best players on the tour today, also in splendid form.
Expect the strong Tiafoe run to end here this week; Zverev to win his fourth ATP title of the year in straight sets.
