Zverev will start as the favorite to win the match. He is one of the favorite to win the title this week and will want to wrap things quickly in the initial rounds. He has lost in the early rounds very rarely this season and hence will fancy his chances against Zverev. Krajinovic too has proved that he could beat anyone on the given day but his defensive game is much more suited to clay. Expect an easy outing for Zverev this time.

Prediction: Zverev to win in straight sets.
