Alexander Zverev v David Ferrer Head to Head
These two players have featured in a match against each other on seven different occasions and Zverev leads the head to head 4-2. Their last meeting was as recently as in the Hopman Cup in January, which Zverev won but not before a fighting Ferrer showed those very qualities has made him the kind of player he is.
He fought hard before going down in a final set tie-breaker
Ferrer’s wins over Zverev came in their first two meetings, at Hamburg on clay and Beijing on hard courts while since then the Zverev’s won four in a row.
Three-match Run since Australian Open for Zverev
Having made the fourth round at the Australian Open earlier before been taken out surprisingly by Milos Raonic, Zverev has shrugged off that loss to win three more in a row.
This included two Davis Cup victories against Hungary before he defeated Alexei Popyrin in the first round here at the Mexican Open.
Zverev has been tipped to be one the Next Gen players to watch out and if you ask some of the experts, he has been said to have the wherewithal to become the first player outside the Big Three to win one of the Grand Slam titles.
The German’s issue is is poor form during these best-of-five tournaments, with the German having never made the semi-finals at any Grand Slam. It could be quite different in such a competition though.
Fighting Ferrer Battles Last Few Months
While his game hasn’t remained what it was worth at one point, the fighting spirit hasn’t dwindled one bit. There hasn’t been any letting up from the opposition but Ferrer still has a reasonable record this season, winning five and lost just three encounter.
He comes into this opening round with a 7-6, 7-6 first round win over Tennys Sandgren after he had accumulated a 4-3 win-loss record before that match.
Can his tenacity outlast the impetuousness of youth?
