Alexander Zverev world number 6 on hard reached the ¼ final in Montreal but lost from Karen Khachanov 3-6, 3-6 and then disappointed with his loss in Cincinnati in the 2nd round from Miomir Kecmanovic after Zverev won the first set but allow to be beaten. In the US Open, the German got himself in epic matches after beating in the 1st round Radu Albot 6-1, 6-3, 3-6, 4-6, 6-2 and then in the 2nd Frances Tiafoe 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 2-6, 6-3. It wasn’t easier for him in the 3rd round against Aljaz Bedene where he won in 4 sets but played 3 tiebreaks. In the round of 16, Zverev was eliminated by Diego Schwartzman. In Asia, he reached the semifinal in Beijing but lost from Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-7, 4-6 and then reached the final on the Shanghai Masters but was stopped to grab the trophy by Daniil Medvedev 4-6, 1-6.
Three times these two players played and Zverev won all of the matches. Fritz is in an awful form unlike the German who played in his latest tournaments his best tennis and that’s why I expect Alexander to win without losing a set. Tennis tips tonight: Alexander Zverev 2:0
