Match Predict – Handicap (-1) for Lehecka
Zverev is no threat at the moment. Alexander has only one win in five games on the hard court this season. Obviously, the German tennis player is out of form, so we believe that Lehecka will be able to upset Zverev again this season in the upcoming encounter.
Total Games Under 25
Zverev and Lehehka met earlier this season. The match took place in the United Cup and ended with a convincing win for the Czech player in two sets. Jiri dropped just six games in that game. We’re betting on a game-less total in this match.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Alexander Zverev vs Jiri Lehecka
The first two months since his return to the tour have not been easy for Zverev. In that time, he has never come close to taking the title. The German player spent the second half of last season recovering from an ankle operation. Zverev was injured in early June in a semi-final match against Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros.
Moreover, the German tennis player has still not won at least two matches in a row this year.
Last week, Alexander lost straight away to Andy Murray (6-7, 6-2, 5-7) at Doha. In the first set, he twice led with a break, but he failed to use even that advantage.
In Rotterdam, Zverev lost to Tallon Griekspoor (6-4, 3-6, 4-6) after defeating Kwon Soon-woo (6-4, 7-6).
Zverev has lost three of his last five meetings against lower-ranked opponents.
Jiri, meanwhile, reached the semi-finals in Doha, which came as no surprise. This year, for the first time in his career, Jiri played in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, beating Cameron Norrie and Felix Auger Aliassime.
In the quarter-finals, Lehečka scored a strong win over Andrey Rublev (4-6, 6-4, 6-3).
Remarkably, his opponent did not have a single break point after the first set.
In the semi-finals, the 21-year-old lost to Andy Murray (0-6, 6-3, 6-7) in an absolutely epic match.
In the deciding set, Lehecka led twice with a break and missed five match points. It is still not very clear how Murray managed to recover.
Lehecka has picked up four wins in their previous five matches against heavily serving opponents.
