German tennis superstar Alexander Zverev is set to play at the 2020 Australian Open at Melbourne Park. Zverev will begin his tournament against Marco Cecchinato from Italy.
Marco Cecchinato has had a poor start to the 2020 season. Cecchinato began his season at the Qatar Open where he was eliminated during the opening round. Marco Cecchinato also played at the Auckland Open where he lost during the second round. The Australian Open has always been a tough tournament for Marco Cecchinato as he has never made it past the opening round. This is expected to be a difficult match for Marco Cecchinato as he is playing against the number 7 seed.
On the other side of the coin, Alexander Zverev also had a very poor start to the tournament. Zverev started his season at the ATP Cup where he lost all 3 matches and that resulted in Team Germany being eliminated during the opening round. Zverev is an outstanding player and he has shown that over the past few years. Since the start of 2016, Zverev has won 11 titles including the ATP Finals in 2018. The Grand Slams have been a weakness for Alexander Zverev but there are big hopes on the German winning a major title in 2020. Alexander Zverev made the fourth round of the Australian Open in 2019 and he will be hoping to make a deeper run this season.
This will be the first time that Alexander Zverev and Marco Cecchinato will be playing each other at an ATP event.
Marco Cecchinato is a solid player but I see him losing this match. Neither Marco Cecchinato nor Alexander Zverev have had good starts to 2020 but Zverev is the stronger player and he is expected to bounce back stronger. I am expecting Marco Cecchinato to win a set but Zverev should be good enough to win the match.
