Tennis | Mischa Zverev vs Alexander Zverev
Susan Mullane-USA TODAY Sports

The Citi Open in Washington has reached the round of 16 stage where the world number 3, Alexander Zverev, will be in action. He will be playing his brother, Mischa Zverev, in this match and it is set to be a big occasion for the two players as they would both want to get the sibling bragging rights. Alexander Zverev and Mischa Zverev also play together in doubles tournaments so they will both know each other's game very well. This should be a great match between two competitive siblings.

Alexander Zverev has established himself as one of the top players in the world. The younger brother has been in incredible form this season as he has made many deep runs and won multiple ATP titles. A point of criticism for Alexander Zverev is that he has failed to impress in grand slam events and he will know that he must improve if he is to be considered as a great player. The US Open is only weeks away and I am sure that Alexander Zverev will want to get some wins under his belt heading into the grand slam event.

As Mischa Zverev is concerned, this will be a great chance to get a victory over his younger brother. Alexander is considered to be a much better tennis player and I am sure that Mischa will look to change that. This will be a tough match for Mischa Zverev as he is not as quick and skillful as his younger brother but I am expecting him to use his knowledge of Alexander’s game to his advantage.

This should be a very entertaining match with both players determined to win. While both players have been playing well, I think there will only be one winner and that will be Alexander Zverev. The younger brother is a much stronger player and I see him winning.
