THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
Last meeting:
David Ferrer beat Alexander Zverev 2-6, 7-5, 6-3

DAVID FERRER

  • 37-year old David Ferrer beat fellow Spaniard and friend Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 on Tuesday in the first round of the Madrid Open.
  • The veteran Spaniard has clinched 13 clay-court titles since turning professional in 2000, which is the third-highest of any active player.
  • The former world number three and 19-year professional has announced that he will retire from the ATP tour after the Madrid Open.

ALEXANDER ZVEREV

  • Alexander Zverev's last match ended in a 6-4, 5-7, 7-5 loss to 47th ranked Cristian Garin in the quarter finals of the Munich Open on Friday.
  • Zverev was victorious at the Madrid Open last year but form has averted him this season with a 13-8 record from the eight tournaments that he has competed in.
  • The German has not won consecutive matches since the Acapulco back in March where he reached the final and lost in two sets against Australian Nick Kyrgios.

THE PREDICTION

David Ferrer beat Sascha Zverev in Miami earlier this year, but the German had won the previous four meetings prior to that. Ferrer is currently ranked 144th in the world and the 37-year old will not have the energy to match Zverev, could take the German all the way as he brings the curtain down on Ferrer’s illustrious career.
