World No. 6 Alexander Zverev will take on Dutch tennis star Tallon Griekspoor in the first round of Wimbledon 2021 on Tuesday. Zverev has had a successful season this time around. The German national won the Madrid Open 2021 in emphatic style.
Post that, he has shown glimpses of his class but he hasn’t been able to hold his nerve under pressure. In the semi-final of the French Open, Zverev fought hard but couldn’t get over the line in the final few moments against Stefanos Tsitsipas. Nevertheless, he has done exceedingly well in almost all the tournaments he has been a part of this year. On the other hand, Tallon Griekspoor played some optimum quality tennis in the Wimbledon qualifiers in order to make his way into the main draw.

Zverev would be a little disappointed with his performance in the Halle Open 2021. The German tennis star was knocked out in the second round by Ugo Humbert. Despite that, Zverev is expected to go past Griekspoor without much hassle. However, Griekspoor displayed incredible grit and determination in the qualifiers which suggests that he will not go down without a fierce fight.
