Fabio Fognini vs Alexander Zverev Tennis Betting Tips
The bookmakers offer in the duel between Alexander Zverev and Fabio Fognini balanced odds with minimal benefits for the Italian Fognini. The Italian was able to win the Masters tournament in Monte Carlo just a few weeks ago and is currently in the shape of his life. Alexander Zverev is a good distance away from his top form, but shows a clearly rising shape curve, although the constancy leaves much to be desired. As a result, Zverev had to turn in the first tournament week again and again extra rounds. The physical fitness should also be sufficient for the Fognini duel.
Fabio Fognini – Statistics & Current Form
Current ranking in the world rankings: 12.
Position in the seedling list: 9
Fabio Fognini has been married to Flavia Pennetta, the former number six in the women’s world ranking list for two years. Since last year the two have a son together. The private fortune makes itself felt on the pitch at the now 32-year-old Fabio Fognini. For a long time, the Italian was a misunderstood genius with outstanding skills, but never able to call them up consistently. However, Flavia Pennetta, who won the US Open in 2015, has obviously done him good, because in recent years the Italian has impressed with strong performances. Bad behavior and verbal attacks are now a thing of the past. In 2018 he finished with a 47: 23 balance. He had never won so many games in a year on the ATP Tour. The actual highlight followed a few weeks ago, when he shot Rafael Nadal in the semifinal at the Masters in Monte Carlo in the semifinals and could win his first Masters title the day after. Alone with this success, Fognini catapulted into the extended circle of favorites at the French Open 2019.
However, the Italian could not convince in the first three rounds. However, he also had a rather unpleasant draw, because with his compatriot Andrea Seppi, the Argentinian Federico Delbonis and the Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut Fognini had three absolute sand court specialists as opponents. In all three games he had to accept a sentence loss, but finally prevailed confidently in four sets. For the success against Roberto Bautista-Agut he needed more than three hours and was thus even a few minutes longer on the court than Alexander Zverev.
Fognini certainly has the form benefits on his side. Although he has played one less sentence than Zverev, we see physical advantages for the German. The knockout stages between the two are definitely a match on equal terms and the fans can look forward to an exciting and close game. A renewed five-set fight would not be so surprising. Between Zverev and Fognini, odds of well over 3.00 are offered for such a tip.

Alexander Zverev – Statistics & Current Form
Current ranking in the world rankings: 5.
Position in the seedling list: 5
Marathon man Alexander “Sascha” Zverev. In the first three rounds, the number five in the world has played 13 out of 15 possible sets. Both against the Australian John Millman and against the Serb Dusan Lajovic, the 22-year-old took a break after a 2-0 sentence lead and yet had to go the full distance. He had the much longer breath in both games and looked much fresher in the decisive fifth round. Zverev was in Geneva the week before in action and could celebrate the tournament victory. At match practice he does not lack anymore after the disappointing start to the clay court season.
After Alexander Zverev lost in Roma the opening match against Matteo Berrettini, he destroyed his mobile phone and is since then no longer mobile reachable. The 22-year-old was distracted by social networks and commitments. Without this distraction he wanted to find joy in the game again. Things are not going well for a long time, as the two games against Millman and Lajovic clearly showed. Nevertheless, he can start again with a broad chest and also has the certainty that he can pull himself out of a bad phase.
“Dusan is an incredible player. It was a very difficult match. I am just glad that I am further ” – Alexander Zverev
Genius and madness are very close together in Zverev these days. These performance variations in his own game often make his life difficult. Against Lajovic he produced no less than 14 (!) Double faults and a total of 55 unforced errors. Values that make victory almost impossible, but Zverev does not call himself a “fighter” for nothing. With every success, self-confidence returns step by step, meanwhile he has won seven games in a row. He had to complete five of them over the full distance. Even against Fognini, the German will probably take again one or the other unwanted time-out. Accordingly, between Alexander Zverev and Fabio Fognini a prediction to a close game is obvious. Hardly anyone can imagine a clear victory – by anybody whatsoever.
