Alexander Zverev meets Fernando Verdasco in the third round of the 2020 Australian Open on Saturday January 25 2020.
Alexander Zverev has played some amazing tennis in his first two rounds and will be looking to go even further in the first Grand Slam of 2020. Zverev is improving his game from a few weeks ago when he lost 3 matches in a row at the ATP Cup. Zverev won both his matches in Melbourne in straight sets and now sets his eyes on Fernando Verdasco. Zverev will have to maintain his composure and ensure he can be strong with his serve if he wants to win easy points against Verdasco.
Fernando Verdasco also came through his first two matches quite easily, only losing one set out of seven. Verdasco has always loved playing in Melbourne and has gone far into the tournament in the past. Verdasco is a very skilled player and is able to confuse opponents with his strong leftie forehand. Verdasco had an average 2019 season but will want to change that in 2020, will he be able to beat the world number 7 on Saturday?
These two players have met on 4 occasions and have split the H2H 2-2. Zverev won their most recent encounter in Paris last years in a match which was very one sided. Zverev dictated play and destroyed Verdasco. This match will be highly entertaining as Zverev is still trying to find his best level and Verdasco will always give his all on the court. It will be a close match, but Alexander Zverev should prevail.
Zverev in 5 sets.
