Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev: Prediction and Betting Tips

20:00, Sep 10 2021
Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev prediction for Friday’s US Open men’s singles showdown at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. World number one Novak Djokovic will square off against the fourth-ranked Alexander Zverev in a clash of the big guns. You can follow our preview free prediction and betting tips.

Novak Djokovic must be fully focused on this match

Despite having some shaky performances at the US Open, Novak Djokovic remains the favorite to win the title. In fact, had to make a comeback in his last three matches after losing the first set in all of them. All these matches will be good preparation for the Serb against tougher opposition.

After winning Wimbledon, Djokovic suffered a setback in the Olympics. Disappointingly the 34-year-old left Tokyo empty-handed without a medal. Coincidentally, Novak lost to Zverev in the semi-final, the man the Serb will face in this match.

Nevertheless, all the hype of Djokovic winning the fourth Grand Slam and the 21st and record-breaking title must be put aside. Consequently, the Serb needs to focus on this match solely and even improve some of the aspects of his game.

Djokovic Key Stats

  • Djokovic lost his serve nine times at the US Open
  • The Serb played on average 33.5 games per match
  • 77% is the average points won by Djokovic on his first serve

Nothing less than perfect performance is needed by Alexander Zverev 

What can be better than reaching the final of the US Open by Alexander Zverev after an amazing season? In fact, and in addition to winning four titles this year, the German is playing very solid tennis. Notably, he lost just one set to Jack Sock in the third round.

The World number four is still searching for his first Grand Slam title. Last year he lost in the final to Dominic Thiem. However, he looks in better shape this year, and the fact that he beat Novak in Tokyo will boost his confidence.

Nonetheless, the Russian had a little lapse against Harris in the first set of his last match. But such weaknesses Zverev must avoid against the world number one who himself is on a historic quest.

Zverev Key Stats

  • Zverev hit 46.4 winners per match at the US Open
  • The German lost his serve four times in five matches
  • 16.6 aces per match is Zverev’s average at the US Open

Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev Prediction 

The plan is clear for Djokovic, take every match at a time. Thus Novak must reflect on his last defeat to Zverev and correct his mistakes. In addition, losing a set in four of the five matches should raise a concern with the Serb’s coaching staff.

On his part, Zverev knows he’s playing the world number one and is familiar with Novak’s intentions. Hence he can’t afford any loss of focus or certain outbursts as is the case with him occasionally. 

With a 1.46 odds at Vbet, Novak Djokovic is the favorite to win at the bookies. This year, the Serb beat the German twice and lost once, and leads the all-time H2H 6-3. Both players won a set in four of their last five meetings. Hence we think that will be the case again in this match.
