USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (New York).
Alexander Zverev’s next opponent in the American Majors will be South African Lloyd Harris. Lloyd was one of the discoveries of the American Majors. However, there are doubts that Harris will beat the top German man after such a long way.
Alexander Zverev’s current form
After losing a set against Sock, it looked like Zverev would have a tough time against Sinner. But it seems that the Italian had had enough tennis in New York by that time and did not try to drag out his defeat in the last 16. Alexander has a similar player to Sinner, Lloyd Harris, not very experienced and therefore vulnerable. Before the semi-finals, the German needs to secure another confident win.
At the Tokyo Games, my serve started to go. At Wimbledon, I served bad, and that’s why I lost to Felix Auger. Since the Olympics, I’ve been getting the ball into the game well. I’ve said many times that I’ve been paying a lot of attention to serve in training. I hope my efforts start to pay off in the end. At the moment, I am happy with everything and confident in my abilities. When you play without any doubt, you hit hard shots more often. However, the next matches will be even tougher. Nevertheless, I’m ready for them.
Lloyd Harris’ current form
Harris beat Khachanov, Escobedo, Shapovalov, Opelka in New York. He has two wins to nil, three lost sets, overall, a very decent result for a top-50 tennis player. But, objectively, the South African had no players of Zverev’s level at the tournament in the biggest city in the USA. On and on psychology, Lloyd can trivialize it because the top eight of such a status tournament is also very cool. There is no confidence that Harris has the morale to fight against a representative of the world’s top 4.
Expert Betting Tips
The Sock situation has led us down the wrong path. Zverev, despite losing the game to the American, is still strong, and the match against Sock was not over. Jack withdrew early, i.e., we can’t say that Alexander spent more energy than he had planned. The win over the talented Sinner showed that the German is in line, and Lloyd Harris has had enough in New York. If Zverev is motivated, not even for a final, but to win the tournament, then for Lloyd, a quarterfinal is a super achievement. We believe that the upcoming encounter is unlikely to turn out to be a protracted one. Well, in terms of the winner, there is little doubt that it will be the German. Here are the odds for this encounter: Total Under (36.5) for 1.70, Handicap 1 (-6.5) for 1.80.
