Danilo Petrovic vs. Alexander Zverev - 2020 Adria Tour
Saturday, June 20 2020
Alexander Zverev meets Danilo Petrovic on the second weekend of the 2020 Adria Tour. Will Zverev have solved his serve issues, or will Danilo Petrovic be able to upset a top 10 player? This is going to be an exciting matchup nonetheless and here is our pick.
Alexander Zverev was highly impressive last weekend at the Adria Tour, except for on his serve. Zverev seems to be continuously struggling to find consistency on his serve and he serves up a lot of double faults. Zverev allows opponents to gain momentum in matches when his serve is not strong and this is an issue. However, when the ball is in play, Zverev is a machine and he is hard to break down. If Zverev found consistency in his serve, he is going to be unstoppable, but for nowadays he is not as dangerous as the Big 3. Zverev can potentially be the best player in the game if he is able to perform on his serve.
Danilo Petrovic is a local Croatian player who is getting an opportunity to play against some of the best players in the world here at the Adria Tour. Petrovic is more of a challenger level player and this is going to be a big step up in competition for him. However, you can never underestimate lower-ranked players as they have nothing to lose and everything to give. Petrovic has no pressure coming into this match and he will just want to have fun. This will allow Petrovic to play freely and this could pose a threat to Zverev and other players.
This is going to be the first meeting between both players and unfortunately for Petrovic, this is going to be a one-way encounter. Although Petrovic has nothing to lose, I don't think he has the game style to beat Alexander Zverev. Zverev came close to beating Novak Djokovic last weekend at the Adria Tour, and I do not see him losing to Danilo Petrovic. Petrovic might see some opportunities to take on the Zverev serve, but when it comes to baseline rallies there is only one winner.
Alexander Zverev to win.
