French Open 2021: Alexander Zverev vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Prediction
Alexander Zverev survived a five set scare in the first round of French Open 2021, as he came back from two sets down to defeat fellow countryman, Oscar Otte. Since then, the sixth seed has not dropped a single set and has been ruthless. He has defeated the likes of Kei Nishikori, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in straight sets. The German claimed the Madrid Masters title last month, after defeating Matteo Berrettini in the finals.
Stefanos Tsitsipas has dropped just one set so far at the French Open. The Greek has been in fine form during the clay court season, and has lifted the title at Monte Carlo and Lyon.
