Second seed Carlos Alcaraz will face sixth seed Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinal of the 2024 Australian Open. The match will played on Wednesday, January 24, 2024. Here's our Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev prediction.

Carlos Alcaraz

Playing on Australian soil for the first time since 2022, Carlos Alcaraz progressed into the second week of the Australian Open for the first time in his career, dropping just one set in four matches. The Spaniard has been at his scintillating best in dismissing Richard Gasquet, Shang Juncheng, Lorenzo Sonego, and most recently, Miomir Kecmanovic. Alcaraz's toughest test at this tournament will most likely begin in the last eight stage, where he will face United Cup champion Alexander Zverev, whom he defeated quite handily during their last Grand Slam clash at the 2023 US Open. Will it be a case of deja vu again, or will Zverev turn the screw?

Alexander Zverev

Alexander Zverev's path to the quarterfinals has been far from cushy. The German needed four sets to defeat in-form compatriot Dominik Koepfer in the first round and then played a pair of five-setters which were decided in a final set tiebreak, beating Lukas Klein and Cameron Norrie. Zverev has spent the most time on the court than his opponent Alcaraz, which could probably mean he might be fatigued ahead of their quarterfinal, but expect him to give a better account of himself than in New York when he played Alcaraz.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev prediction

These two players have played seven matches against each other on tour, with Zverev shading the series 4-3. Alcaraz won their last Grand Slam meeting in straight sets at last year's US Open, but it is Zverev who exacted revenge at the ATP Finals in the most recent ATP meeting. This should be a cracking contest. Zverev's serve is a major asset on these courts, and he's needed that destructive shot to work overtime on his path to the quarterfinals. But Alcaraz is playing at a much higher level, almost as if that two-week break at the start of January helped ease his body into competition. Back the Spaniard to win this encounter in four sets.
