Tennis Prediction of the Day Dominic Thiem vs Alexander Zverev
Thiem is one of the most in-form players of the moment, and it seems hard to bet against him, especially after the quarterfinal duel.
However, there is a “curse” of victories against top players like Nadal or Djokovic, and this scenario is likely tomorrow.
Zverev has overcome the bad pass that he went through in the final part of last season, so now he looks like the imposing player again on the hard.
Alexander is unstoppable at work and I expect this aspect of the game to make a difference tomorrow.
