German tennis superstar Alexander Zverev has made it into the final 16 at the 2021 ATP US Open in New York. At this stage of the tournament, Alexander Zverev is set to play against Jannik Sinner from Italy,
Let us start by looking at Jannik Sinner. The Italian superstar has risen up the ranks in dramatic fashion over the past few years and has established himself amongst the top players on the ATP tour. Sinner enters this match having defeated Gael Monfils in 5 sets in the previous round. It was an epic match but Jannik Sinner showed his class in the final few sets of the match and that allowed him to eventually get the victory. It has been a decent few months for Jannik Sinner as he recently won the Washington Open but this is an entirely different game and the Italian must produce his best tennis if he wishes to compete in this match.
Looking at Alexander Zverev, the German has been promising to deliver at the big stage for an eternity and he will be hoping to be able to produce a big tournament this time around. Alexander Zverev enters this match having beaten Jack Sock in 4 sets in the previous round. It was a strong performance by Zverev as he won 4 return games while only losing serve once in the entire match. Zverev has looked strong throughout this tournament and he seems to be in amazing form having recently won the Cincinnati Masters. With all that in mind, I see Alexander Zverev being very tough to beat in this tournament.
Alexander Zverev and Jannik Sinner have played each other twice in the past with both players winning on 1 occasion. The most recent match between these two players was in 2020 where Zverev won in straight sets.
