Alexander Zverev needs a clear win

In his second match of the tournament, Alexander Zverev put on a huge fight against Daniil Medvedev. However, the German fell just short and suffered his fifth consecutive defeat against the Russian. Notably, Zverev lost the first set after losing his serve once. Then in the second set, both players held their serves, as Zverev managed to tie the score after winning the tiebreaker. 

In the third set, it was another neck-and-neck battle. This time, the World number three Zverev and despite hitting 23 winners couldn’t win the crucial points and lost the tiebreaker 8-6. Surely, Zverev will enter the match against Hurkacz with the intention to win. Also, it is important not to lose a set as that can have its toll on deciding the player who will qualify for the next round.

Hubert Hurkacz must regroup to claim his first win

Two defeats in two matches concluded Hubert Hurkacz’s journey in the Nitto ATP Tour Finals. Still, the Pole will play to win and finish the tournament with a victory in his first appearance at the Finals. However, after a fine display in his opening match where he lost to Medvedev 2-1, Hurkacz went down to Sinner in his second match. And with that form, it is difficult to trouble Zverev.

In fact, the world number nine had a very poor performance in terms of his service game. To point out, Hurkacz won just 58% of the points on his first serve and 31% off his second. That allowed Sinner to break the Pole’s serve four times in the match and cruise to a relatively easy win. Hence, if Hurkacz wants to leave Turin on a high note, he must regroup and find back the form he had in his first match.

Alexander Zverev vs Hubert Hurkacz Key Points

  • In his last match, Zverev lost his serve just once
  • Zverev hit 48 winners in his match against Medvedev
  • Hurkacz lost his serve four times in the tournament so far
  • In his two matches, Hurkacz made 31 unforced errors

Alexander Zverev vs Hubert Hurkacz Prediction

Obviously, Alexander Zverev is the favorite to win this match with the bookies. Clearly, the German’s performance in the last match despite losing is enough to come into this match and expect a victory. 

On the other hand, Hurkacz could not repeat his first set display against Medvedev. Hence, the Pole lost to Sinner because of his high number of unforced errors. 

Considering their form and recent matches, Zverev is definitely the better player at the moment. We might see some resilience from Hurkacz but we don’t think it will be enough to win this match.

Since the odds for a Zverev win is very low at 1.22, we will back the total games and predict to see over 20.5 games. Also for our second prediction, we will back Kurkacz to win under 11.5 games.
