World number three Alexander Zverev came back from two sets down to beat impressive youngster Sebastian Baez on Wednesday. 25-year-old Zverev made the semi-finals here last season before a five-set defeat to Stefanos Tsitsipas and he has lost to the Greek in two of their three semi-finals over the last few months on clay at the Monte-Carlo Open and Italian Open last time out. The German finished runner-up in Madrid, though, having beaten Tsitsipas in the semis on that occasion before losing heavily to Carlos Alcaraz. All this points to Zverev being way below the level he found for much of last season, where he won two Masters titles, an Olympic Gold Medal and the ATP Finals.
World number 75 Brandon Nakashima has a faint chance at the upset here based on his performance in Paris so far on his debut, with a five-set victory over Kamil Majchrzak in the first round backed up by an excellent straight-sets result over Tallon Griekspoor on Wednesday. Zverev beat Nakashima in four sets in their only previous meeting in the second round of the US Open on his way to the final that season and taking the German to win outright is the sensible call here. However, taking Nakashima to win outright in a small, inadvisable, one-off capacity could be the shrewd move of the round.
