Tennis Prediction of the Day Daniil Medvedev vs Alexander Zverev
Even though for Medvedev the stake of this match is only a financial one and Zverev still has a chance of qualifying, I expect a balanced and long-lasting match between the two, with long and agesive ball-to-ball exchanges behind the field.
With service as one of the main weapons, I bet on long sets, without too many breaks, also being high chances for the game to be decided in a decisive set.
Prediction Today: Over 22.5 games
Daniil Medvedev has no victory in this ATP Finals but he did not play at all, with both Tsitsipas and especially Nadal being able to win. And now he will surely struggle to win, one that in the right context can lead him to the semifinals. Medvedev serves well and generally makes a few double mistakes, having 0 with Tsitsipas and 2 with Nadal in an extremely long and tense match. Alexander Zverev has a good chance of reaching the semifinals, so he will be concentrated. Although in the summer he made many double mistakes, lately he is much more attentive to this chapter, here having 2 with Tsitsipas and 2 with Nadal. And in their last direct match, a month ago, there were 5 double mistakes, ie half of the line set here.
Bet Tips: Under 9.5 double errors in the match
