Alexander Zverev vs Maxime Cressy: Preview
The German will look to gain momentum in the second round match after a shaky start against World Number 75, Marcos Giron. The 6th seed won in 4 sets with the scoreline of 6-7, 7-6, 6-3, 6-2. He would be looking to make a deep run in this year’s Australian Open as he did last year. He lost to Dominic Thiem in the Semi-Finals of the tournament in 2020.
The American on the other hand comes in as a qualifier in the tournament and defeated lucky loser, Taro Daniel in the 1st round. The scoreline of the 1st round match was 7-6, 7-6, 6-4. He has reached the 2nd round of the Australian Open for the first time and will be hoping to continue his dream run.
