After beating Koepfer in three sets, Alexander Zverev faces world number 31, Ugo Humbert, in a match where these two meet each other for the first time. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Alexander Zverev taking time to adjust on grass

The third seed for the Halle Open Alexander Zverev is the highest-seeded player left in the tournament after top seed Medvedev lost to Struff in the first round and second-seeded Tsitsipas pulled out of the tournament. The German faced tough opposition in his first match needing three sets to pass through world number 51 Koepfer.

The two-time finalist in Halle Zverev found difficulty adjusting on the grass court. After a 6-3 win of the first set the world number six got broken once in the second set and had to regroup in the third set and won all his service games and broke Koepfer in the ninth game to win the match,

Zverev Key Points

  • Zverev won 89% (17-19) of the points behind his first serve in the first round match
  • The German has a 24-12 win/loss record on grass in his career
  • Zverev has an average of 23 games per match in Halle in his career

Fine results on grass will boost Humbert’s confidence

Ugo Humbert has won more matches on grass than on clay this year. The French had a terrible clay season losing six of his seven matches and qualified to the second round in just one of the six tournaments he played in. On grass in Stuttgart, he won two matches  and lost to Aliassime in the quarter-final

Humbert’s first-round match in Halle was a very tight one. The 22-year-old world number 31 beat big-serving Sam Querry in three sets. After losing the first, Humbert fought back and won two tiebreakers to set him up for a second-round matchup with Zverev whom he will face for the first time.

Humbert Key Points

  • Humbert saved 4/7 break points in his first match
  • 8-5 win/loss record is Humbert’s numbers on grass in his career
  • Humbert has played on average 24.3 games per match in his career on grass

Alexander Zverev vs Ugo Humbert Prediction

It is always difficult to change the surface especially from clay to grass which are completely different in every aspect. Not only Zverev had to deal with that but he had to overcome his semi-final defeat in the French Open which was a grueling match.

But it’s professional tennis and these players are used to these kinds of situations and difficulties. We think Zverev will improve from match to match and reach far in the tournament.

Looking at his results it seems Hubert is more comfortable playing on grass and had a very good win against Querry in the first round, we think the Frenchman will be a tough opponent for Zverev and win enough games to bring the total games to over 23.
