Alexander Zverev and Christopher Eubanks meet in the second round of the 2023 tennis Geneva Open. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Alexander Zverev Betting Preview
Alexander Zverev is coming off a fourth round exit in Rome, where he lost to Daniil Medvedev in straight sets. Zverev has split his last 12 matches overall, and he’s not as trustworthy as he’s been in the past, but he has shown flashes on clay this month. Also, Zverev won this tournament back in 2019, so there’s some history on these courts. Zverev has lost his opening match 3 times since Doha back in February. Zverev has split his last 8 matches on clay court.
Christopher EubanksBetting Preview
Christopher Eubanks is coming off a straight set win over Benoit Paire that took 22 games to decide. In the victory, Eubanks won 83 percent of his first serve points and 52 percent of his second serve points. Eubanks won 73 percent of his total service points and converted on 3 of his 4 break points. Eubanks got 66 percent of his first serves in play and hit 3 aces. Eubanks has won 6 of his last 8 matches overall, and he’s inside the top-100 for the first time in his career. Including challenger play, Eubanks has a chance to win at least 2 matches for the fifth straight tournament. Eubanks has lost 6 of his last 9 matches on clay court.
There’s no match history between these 2 players.
Eubanks is enjoying his best stretch of his tennis career, so the confidence should be high. Eubanks also just beat a quality player in Paire. Zverev has also been hit or miss this year, so anything can happen. All that said, Zverev should win this match for obvious reasons, and he has success in this tournament which includes a title. I’ll take Zverev in straight sets to shave the price. No excuses for the German.
