Tennis | Taylor Fritz vs Alexander Zverev
Susan Mullane-USA TODAY Sports

The number 4 seed in the men’s singles tournament is German superstar Alexander Zverev. At only 21 years of age, the German is one of the most promising players in the competition. He will be playing his second round game against Taylor Fritz from the United States.

Taylor Fritz is only 20 years old and this is the furthest he has ever gotten at Wimbledon. He was very impressive in his opening round match as he came from one set down to beat Sonego from Italy. It has not been the best month for Taylor Fritz as he has struggled in all his tournaments but a deep run at Wimbledon will make up for everything. Fritz is the second youngest American to reach an ATP final and is promised to be a future star. While that is the case, he is up against a top player and it will be interesting to see how he competes against Alexander Zverev.

On the other side of the court, Alexander Zverev is looking very good. The German is in great form and he showed that as he won his opening round game in straight sets. This has been a very good year for Alexander Zverev as he has had success in both singles and doubles. It is very possible that Alexander Zverev can win at Wimbledon and the German will look to ensure that he ends this match quickly so he can remain fresh and rested for the later rounds of the competition.

All in all, I am predicting that Alexander Zverev will win this match. Taylor Fritz has great talent but at this moment of time, he is not good enough to beat Alexander Zverev. I think this will be a very one-sided match since Alexander Zverev is simply too strong. Looking at the odds, we are not getting a good enough price to wager on Alexander Zverev to win so I would avoid that bet. The best bet in the under 3.5 sets. This bet should win since I see Alexander Zverev winning in straight sets.
