Tennis | Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Alexander Zverev
Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Greek youngster, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and German superstar, Alexander Zverev, have both reached the quarterfinals of the ATP Rogers Cup in Toronto. Both players have been exceptional this tournament and they will both feel that they are in good enough form to win this match and secure a spot in the last 4. This dynamic should ensure that we get a very competitive and hard-fought tennis match.

Stefanos Tsitsipas has had an incredible tournament as he eliminated Austrian superstar, Dominic Thiem, in the round of 32. The followed that win by defeating Serbian legend, Novak Djokovic, in the round of 16. These are two very impressive wins and it should mean that the Greek teenager is extremely high on confidence. Watching Stefanos Tsitsipas play, it can easily be seen that he is hitting the ball extremely well and when that is combined with his great speed and agility, it is a dangerous combination. This will be another big test for Stefanos Tsitsipas and he will need to put in another top display.

Alexander  Zverev, on the other hand, will look to end the Greek teenager's fairytale run. The German superstar has cruised to this point in the tournament having won both his matches in straight sets. This should be the first time that Alexander Zverev is challenged but considering how well the world number 3 is playing, he should not be worried about any player.

While Stefanos Tsitsipas has already established himself as a giant killer, I don’t think he will kill another giant. This will be the toughest opponent the Greek teenager has faced all tournament and I think the German will be too strong. I expect this to be a very close contest with Alexander Zverev showing his class and getting the win. Expect this match to go into the third set. The over 2.5 sets wager is paying well so that is the best bet for this match.

 

Pick:
Alexander Zverev
