Which ranks 4th in the ATP Ranking.
Zverev is a player of great quality, for many pointed as a future number 1 and the certain thing is that this player presents a level of tennis absolutely incredible for the age that has.
Zverev is playing very well this year and highlights whether to win the Masters Rome on clay and Masters Montreal in Canada in hard court.
There was something tiring at the US Open and they lost in the second round to a Borna Coric who made a good game and deserved the victory. Zverev said he hopes to make a good tour in Asian tournaments and here is the first seed.
Steve Darcis, 33-year-old Belgian player who ranks 76th in the ATP Ranking. Darcis is an experienced player, a tennis player who likes to play on the court floor, hits the left hand and has consistency in his game.
It is not out of series, it does not have great capacity of acceleration or aggressiveness, but fighter and that plays well with the arms that it has.
Recently it was very important for Belgium in the tie against Australia. He lost in 5 sets to Kyrgios, but in the deciding match he beat Jordan Thompson and gave Belgium victory. Here he beat Ze Zhang in 2 very balanced sets, 7-5 / 7-6 in his favor.
Head to head: 0-1 Darcis
Prognosis Alexander Zverev vs. Steve Darcis:
Darcis even defeated Davis Cup Zverev this year, but here the story will be quite different and will not be repeated. I see Zverev come in strong in this tournament and beat Darcis in 2 sets.
We are talking about players with different realities and Zverev although he has not yet debuted for being exempted in the first round of this tournament, we can not forget that he already played in the pair variant and won, so he is also round and more adapted to the conditions of the game.
I see the strong enter and dominate this meeting in the bottom of the court. 2-0 is my bet.
