Third seed Carlos Alcaraz faces fourth seed Alexander Zverev in the final of the 2024 French Open. The match is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, 2024. Here's our Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev prediction.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev Preview

Carlos Alcaraz defeated soon-to-be World No. 1 Jannik Sinner in five sets. The match lasted four hours. Although it wasn't quite the classic we expected for two sets and a half, the two men switched it on towards the end, and the fifth set featured some exceptional shotmaking, especially from Alcaraz's racket. The Spaniard will contest his first French Open final against a man who is the most in-form ATP player on clay this season.

Alexander Zverev has been a man of nine lives in this tournament, surviving in back-to-back five-set matches in the third and fourth rounds. But he's upped the ante since, beating two Top 11 seeds, including two-time runner-up Casper Ruud, in the semis in four sets. Zverev will contest his second major final after coming so close to lifting the title at the 2020 US Open. Can he cross the finish line on Sunday?

Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev Head-To-Head

Zverev leads Alcaraz 5-4 in their head-to-head.

On clay, Alcaraz leads 2-1. But it is Zverev who won their previous meeting at Roland Garros two years ago in four sets.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Alexander Zverev Prediction

He may be the younger player in this matchup, but Alcaraz is 2-0 in the Grand Slam finals, winning at the 2022 US Open and 2023 Wimbledon. He was made to suffer a dip in level during the semifinal win over Jannik Sinner, but he showed his class when it mattered, especially on the bigger points. Zverev, meanwhile, lost his only previous appearance in a major final at the 2020 US Open.

Zverev has been serving his way out of trouble all tournament, but he's more than just a serving machine. The German has a world-class backhand that can hold up from the venomous strikes from Alcaraz, and the big question mark I have here is whether he's got the mental fortitude to win this match. Game-wise, I feel he'll challenge Alcaraz, but I'm not entirely convinced with his mental strength in decisive moments. I'll take Alcaraz to win his third Grand Slam title.
