THE LOWDOWN

STEFANOS TSITSIPAS

  • Stefanos Tsitsipas has made it through to the quarter-finals of the Madrid Open with little fuss in two straight-sets victories over Adrian Mannarino and Fernando Verdasco.
  • The Greek star won the Estoril Open in Portugal last week before turning his attentions to his second appearance at Madrid, improving massively on his 2018 first-round exit.
  • Tsitsipas came back from one set down to beat his Madrid Open quarter-final opponent Sascha Zverev at the same stage of last year’s Rogers Cup in Canada.

ALEXANDER ZVEREV

  • Alexander Zverev almost slipped up in his round of 16 game with Hubert Hurkacz after going a set down but then rallied to win the final two 6-3, 6-3.
  • The 22-year-old is reigning champion after his emphatic win over clay-specialist Dominic Thiem last year and has reached his third successive quarter-final at this competition.
  • Zverev beat his quarter-final opponent Stefanos Tsitsipas in their first ever meeting at the semi-final stage of the Citi Open in Washington D.C. last year.

THE PREDICTION

This match should have it all between two players ranked at 4th in the world, Zverev, and 8th, Tsitsipas, carrying the torch for tennis’ next generation of elite. Sascha Zverev is reigning champion but has struggled for form before this competition since his defeat to Nick Kyrgios in Mexico back in March. Meanwhile Stefanos Tsitsipas has already played 34 matches this year and comes off the back of an ATP title victory in Portugal. Zverev perhaps just edges the pick on previous showings at Madrid, but this match should go to a deciding set.
