Alexander Zverev: Team form, news and statistics
Alexander Zverev is a 23-year-old German, ranked 7th in the ATP.
And Zverev is one of the best tennis players in the world and an athlete already constantly present in the top 10 ATP.
He is still extremely young but already has three Masters titles, coming after his first grand slam final, at the US Open.
There he showed that he is not yet 100% mentally prepared, in the tie-break of the decisive set serving terribly, but he has a long time in which he can improve this aspect.
In 2019 he has the final in Acapulco, the quarterfinals in Munich, the quarterfinals in Madrid, the title in Geneva, the quarterfinals at Roland Garros, the quarterfinals in Halle, the semifinals in Hamburg, the quarterfinals in Montreal, the semifinals in Beijing, final in Shanghai and semifinals in the ATP Finals.
And in 2020 he has a semifinal at the Australian Open and a final at the US Open.
So Alexander did well in both grand slams, a positive thing considering that until this year he was struggling to get through the early stages of such tournaments.
After the US Open he took a break, now being at his first slag tournament of the season.
– 7-5 6-2 6-4 with Novak (92nd place ATP), winning 84% of the ball with the first serve, 57% with the second, offering 2 break points (1 saved)
– 2-6 6-4 7-6 4-6 6-4 with Herbert (78th place ATP), winning 71% balls with the first serve, 42% with the second, offering 14 break points (7 saved)
Marco Cecchinato: Team form, news and statistics
Marco Cecchinato is a 28-year-old Italian, ranked 110 ATP.
And Cecchinato has reached an age where he can perform, reaching sports maturity.
His problem is that he is extremely fickle, a player who was up to 16th place in the world, who has a semifinal right here, but who seems lost in many months of the season, a tennis player who can always access a very good level of play. who seems unable to concentrate on tennis.
But now he is in that top form again, so he can get here in the second week.
In 2019 he has the semifinals in Doha, the title in Buenos Aires, the semifinals in Munich and the semifinals in the Szczecin challenger.
And in 2020 he has the final at the Punta del Este challenger and the quarterfinals at the Todi challenger.
Lately its shape is growing. At the US Open he lost in the first round to Harris, without taking a set, but in Rome he reached the second round, passing Kyle Edmund until he clearly lost to Filip Krajinovic.
– 7-6 6-4 6-0 with de Minaur (28th place ATP), winning 62% balls with the first service, 52% with the second, offering 8 break points (4 saved)
– 6-3 6-2 5-7 6-2 with Londero (69th place ATP), winning 74% balls with the first service, 54% with the second, offering 7 break points (4 saved)

Tennis Prediction of the Day Alexander Zverev vs Marco Cecchinato
Alexander Zverev is a top tennis player, coming after his first grand slam final, being defeated by Thiem at the US Open.
Here he is on his first slag tour since then, taking a break, looking pretty bad. If Novak passed in a minimum of sets, with Herbert he needed 5 innings, being generally modest, especially on his own service. Marco Cecchinato is an interesting athlete.
He only once made it through the first round of grand slam tournaments, but then he made it to the semifinals, right here. Now he is in top form again, passing the qualifiers without losing a set, then passing 3-0 by De Minaur, taking a set even to zero.
So I think that Marco can take the set even now, my prognosis going on this idea at a rate offered by Betano.
Prediction Today: Marco Cecchinato wins at least one set
