We offer a prediction for the match on January 7, in which Alexander Zverev will play with Denis Shapovalov. Will a German tennis player manage to win his first match in the ATP Cup? – read in our prediction.
Zverev has not yet won a single match in this tournament. First, Alexander lost to Alex De Minaur (6-4, 6-7, 2-6), and then was destroyed by Stefanos Tsitsipas (1-6, 4-6). The German tennis player has big problems with the pitch. She does not fly with him, and he is too often mistaken. For example, in a confrontation with De Minaur, Zverev made 14 double mistakes, and in a match with Shapovalov – ten.
It seems that the representative of Germany is not ready for the new season. He wants to win, but he doesn’t succeed. Because of this, he even obmateril his father in the last fight.
Shapovalov is still demonstrating a good game. In the first match, Denis defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas (7-6, 7-6), but after that he could not cope with Alex De Minaur (7-6, 4-6, 2-6).
The Canadian game is also difficult to call ideal. He makes many mistakes. For example, in two matches Shapovalov made 11 doubles. This is slightly less than that of Zverev, but still a player of this level should not be so wrong.
Statistics and personal meetings
- In personal meetings, the score is 3-1 in favor of Zverev.
- Last year, on a hard Shapovalov beat the German in three sets.
Zverev vs Shapovalov Prediction
This time we take a chance and try to play the victory of Zverev. In the first match, Alexander looked pretty good, but was psychologically broken by the stands. If he demonstrates the same game, then he will have a chance to win.
You can play with Shapovalov. His game is imperfect. He lost his serve five times in the confrontation with De Minaur. In addition, the Canadian also makes many double mistakes. Given the history of personal meetings, we believe that Zverev will still win his first victory in these competitions.
