Alexander Zverev v Daniel Altmaier Head to Head
The players have never met on the tour before.
Zverev Strong Title Contender
World number three Alexander Zverev comes into the Aussie Open as one of the top three title contenders, alongside Daniil Medvedev and Novak Djokovic (if he is allowed to play, given all the current controversy around his vaccine status and visa).
2021 was another good year for Zverev, who won the ATP Masters 1000 titles in Madrid and Cincinnati, ATP 500 titles at Acupulco and Vienna and ended the year with his second ATP Tour Finals title defeating the two top ranked players in the world Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev en route.
It was not the best of ATP Cup outings by Zverev’ standards to begin 2022. Although he won the group stage matches against Cameron Norrie and Taylor Fritz, Zverev fell short against Felix Auger- Aliassime and Germany was unable to move past the group stages.
Zverev is yet to win a major and many of the tennis pundits believe this is the year for him to get the slam tally going. He will be hoping to get the count started here in Melbourne itself.
Altmaier Hopes To Challenge Compatriot
Daniel Altmaier was a notable first-time winner on the ATP Challenger Tour last season.
He won the title on home soil in Braunscheiwg, and further added two more trophies to his cabinet in Luedenscheid and Puerto Vallarta.
It was a season of shoulder and abdominal issues for the young German as he looked to repeat the wonders of his 2020 French Open as a qualifier defeating the likes of Feliciano Lopez, Jan-Lennard Struff and Matteo Berrettini en route the round of 16.
Ranked 84th in the world at the moment, it was not the best of starts to 2022 for Altmaier, who lost in the opening round at both Melbourne and Sydney ATP 250s ahead of the Australian Open next week.
The German will hope to resurrect his form in order to provide a challenge to his higher ranked countryman Zverev in the opener.
Zverev v Altmaier Prediction and Tip
Little known Altmaier will have his hands full when he meets Zverev in the opener. A clinical Zverev win in straight sets should be on the cards.
