The tennis predictions on Tennis-picks.net offer profitable daily predictions and previews with in depth analysis for both WTA and ATP matches.
Valencia resident, David Ferrer, will definitely fancy his chances, though Zverev has been the better player over the last 15 months or so. No matter how good the German is, facing Spain on the clay courts is one of the hardest tasks in the Davis Cup, and it will be interesting to see how the young Zverev handles the occasion.
David Ferrer Prediction
David Ferrer will play his first Davis Cup match since winning two singles rubbers against India in 2016, against Ramkumar Ramanathan and Saketh Myneni.
The former World #3 is currently on a 14-match winning run in the Davis Cup, with his last defeat coming against Gael Monfils in 2010. His overall W/L record in this competition stands at 27/4.
Except 2013, 2014 and 2017, David Ferrer has played at least one Davis Cup match every season since 2006. He was part of the squad that faced Great Britain in the first round earlier this season but did not play a match.
Alexander Zverev Pick
Alexander Zverev played a big part in Germany’s progression to the quarterfinal as he defeated Alex de Minaur in five sets and Nick Kyrgios in straight sets to seal the tie 3-1.
It was also the first time Zverev has managed to win two singles rubbers in a Davis Cup tie. Before 2018, his record in this competition stood at 1/3.
Only once in the previous seven years, Germany had reached the quarterfinal of the Davis Cup, which ended in a 2-3 defeat at the hands of France in 2014.
Neither of these players has played a match on the clay courts so far in 2018, and surprisingly, Alexander Zverev outperformed David Ferrer on the clay courts in 2017 (16/4 vs. 11/8).
This is the second consecutive Davis Cup away tie for Germany (first on clay, played on hard courts in Australia) while Spain hosted Great Britain at Marbella (clay) earlier in the season and will now move to Valencia (clay).
