Alexander Zverev has not yet won in the new season. In the first round of the Australian Open on January 21, he will play with Marco Cecchinato. What are the chances of success for the representative of Germany? – check out our prediction

Marco Cecchinato

Cecchinato is not happy with the results in the new season. Perhaps this is due to the fact that now all the games are held on hard, while the Italian feels more confident on clay courts. This season, Marco had three fights in which he won only one victory – in the first round of the tournament in Auckland, the Italian defeated Argentinean representative Leandro Mayer in three sets (7-6, 6-7, 7-6).

Alexander Zverev

Zverev also can not boast of special achievements in the new year – three defeats in three games. The representative of Germany failed all three matches in the ATP Cup. In the opening round of the team competition in Australia, Alexander lost to Alex De Minaur (6-4, 6-7, 2-6), then there were defeats in two sets from Stefanos Tsitsipas (1-6, 4-6) and Denis Shapovalov (2- 6, 2-6).

Marco Cecchinato vs Alexander Zverev Prediction

Alexander Zverev unsuccessfully started the new season – in three matches he suffered three defeats. The representative of Germany did not succeed much in the opening games of the season, especially often there were problems with the first serve. Perhaps, Open Zverev will be much better prepared for the start to the Australian, but the German tennis player, who is not particularly psychologically resilient, will definitely experience some excitement in the first match at a major tournament, which could play into the hands of Ceccinato.

  • Our prediction – Marco Cecchinato to win.
