Djokovic vs Zverev: prediction for the US Open match
On September 10, Novak Djokovic goes against Alexander Zverev in the US Open semifinal. What to expect from the opponents? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Djokovicdoesn't look entirely convincing at the current US Open. It is rare to see the Serbian tennis player lose a set, but he already lost four at this tournament. Djokovic played four sets against Holger Rune (6-1, 6-7, 6-2, 6-1), Kei Nishikori (6-7, 6-3, 6-3, 6-2), Jenson Brooksby (1-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2), and Matteo Berrettini (5-7, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2). His only three-set win was over Tallon Griekspoor (6-2, 6-3, 6-2).
This is the 12th US Open semifinal in Djokovic's career. He has won this tournament three times.
Zverev is phenomenal this year, especially since he won the gold medal at the Olympics. He is very confident and is rightfully considered one of the main contenders for the trophy. So far, Zverev's most difficult match at the US Open was against Jack Sock.
The German tennis player lost the first set but managed to pull himself together and won the following two sets. Then Sock got injured and withdrew from the competition. In his other matches of this US Open, Zverev outplayed Sam Querrey (6-4, 7-5, 6-2), Albert Ramos Vinolas (6-1, 6-0, 6-3), Jannik Sinner (6-4, 6-4, 7-6), and Lloyd Harris (7-6, 6-3, 6-4).
Zverev has played 2 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
In 3 of Djokovic's last 5 matches, under 9,5 games were played in the first set.
Zverev has defeated Djokovic four times. The most recent victory of the German over Djokovic happened at the Olympics in Tokyo. Zverev won the semifinal match, and then later - the Olympic gold. Both Djokovic and Zverev are in great form, and the match between them promises to be extremely interesting and intense.
Our prediction - total over 37 games.
