Djokovic vs. Zverev: is it worth believing in the underdog?

Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev will meet in one of the matches on February 5 at the ATP Cup. Will the German tennis player be able to fight the first racket of the world? Read in our prediction.

Novak Djokovic

At this ATP Cup, Djokovic has already managed to bring one victory to his team. In the first match, Novak outplayed Denis Shapovalov (7-5, 7-5). Despite some difficulties, in general, the Serb played stably. The Canadian did not have a single opportunity for a break, whereas the Balkan took his chance fully. 

It is worth noting that in 2020 Djokovic won all his matches here. Then, by the way, he lost one game to Shapovalov. This time "Nole" played much better.

In addition to the victory over the Canadian, the Serb also has one win at the tennis exhibition tournament in Adelaide. There Novak defeated Jannik Sinner (6-3).

Alexander Zverev

Zverev also won his first match in this tournament. And the German managed to defeat that same Shapovalov. Though, Sasha had a little harder time, as the Canadian managed to win one game against him. Despite this, the victory was achieved by the representative of Germany (6-7, 6-3, 7-6).

It was very important for Zverev to win in this confrontation. The thing is, he performed terrible at the ATP Cup last season. Then he not only lost all three of his matches but also got into a scandal with his own father. After another lost point, Alexander insulted him.

Statistics

  • In face-to-face matches, the score is 5-3 in favor of Djokovic.
  • Last year at the Final Tournament, Novak beat Alexander 7-6, 6-3.
  • In 2020, the Serb won 27 matches on hard court, German - 15.

Our Prediction

Recently, Zverev has regularly resisted Djokovic. This happened twice last year. First, Sasha won one game against the Serb at the Adria Tour and then lost by the difference of four games at the ATP Final Tournament.

In the previous match, the representative of Germany looked quite confident, that's why we believe that he will give a fight to the favorite. It is likely that he will not lose with a big difference in the score.

Our prediction is Alexander Zverev's handicap (+3.5) for the coefficient of 2.1 on 1xbet.
