Alexey Zakharov

A tennis player from Russia is 19 years old. Now Alexey is in 6 positions from his personal record. He started playing for adults in 2017. In 2018, the Russian for the first time reached the final of the futures, last year he managed to win 2 titles.

In 2019, Zakharov played challengers several times, but couldn’t win more than 1 match, he didn’t go beyond 2 rounds. Trophies were conquered on the ground and hard.

In 2020, he won 10 times in 14 games. Zakharov began the season on the Challenger in the USA, where he lost in round 2, then played in futures three times, but failed to go beyond 2 rounds, after which Alex won the title in the hall, he excelled at the tournament in Aktobe, in the final he outplayed in three parties of another Russian Evgenii Tiurnev.

In Nur-Sultan, Alexey play for the first time. In the 1st round, he was frankly lucky with his opponent, where Zakharov was opposed by a little-known local tennis player Daniil Ozernoy, who was able to take only 4 games from the favorite.

Yannick Maden

An experienced German tennis player is 30 years old. He already managed to visit a hundred, because he was the 96th number in the world ranking. Maden has been playing a lot of matches since 2014. Now Yannik is at 149 positions in the world ranking table. Recently, the German has slowed down a little.

Maden showed good results in the first half of last year, Yannick played in the finals of the challengers, went from preliminary selection to 2 laps in the major in Paris.

In 2020, a 30-year-old athlete went to court 13 times and got 6 wins, couldn’t qualify for the base in Melbourne, lost there in the 2nd qualifying round, lost 250 at the start in Pune, in Rotterdam he lost one step away from going to the main draw to Mikhail Kukushkin, then moved to the Challengers, Maden played in the quarter finals at his home tournament, then was defeated by Gaston at the start of the Challenger in Poe.

Zakharov vs Maden Predictions

The Russian is still lacking experience. He needs to play with strong opponents. The courts in Nur-Sultan are far from the fastest, which will play into the hands of Yannick Maden, because the German, although he loves to play in the halls, but prefers long rallies on the back line. Zakharov will have a hard time. I believe that the underdog will lose without any chance, it’s significantly inferior in class to its opponent, so the total under than 21.5 will be a logical bet.

  • Our prediction: Yannick Maden will win total under 21.5.
