THE PREDICTION

This should be a really winnable first fixture at the Italian Open for Alexander Zverev as he comes to Rome off the back of an incredible title-winning campaign at the Madrid Open but the German must settle quickly. World number six Zverev has been known to lose concentration from tournament to tournament before, especially after a title win, so 27-year-old Hugo Dellien would do well to come out all guns blazing on Wednesday if he is to snatch a career win. The Bolivian played well to come back from a set down against Adrian Mannarino on Monday but despite the chance of a Zverev slip-up this is realistically too high a challenge for him. A Zverev win outright would be a solid pick indeed but the 23-year-old should be winning this in straight sets all day long.
