- The coefficients and forecast
22-year-old German is the reigning champion of the “masters” in Montreal. Sasha won the title in the first visit in 2017 year. Although they could leave the tournament in the opening match, narrowly snatching victory from the experienced Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-3, 4-6, 7-6. Then turn on the “Superman”, winning four dry victory over Karlosom, Anderson, Shapovalov and Federer in the final.
Last season Sasha played in Toronto, which traditionally has been through the season is the canadian masters Championships by reaching the quarterfinals. Beat on the grid dry Clan and Medvedev, having suffered a humiliating defeat from Stefanos of Zizipus 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, feeding in the second set on the match with the score 5-3 and having a few match points in the tiebreak.
This year, Zverev held on hard with only five tournaments without playing in the room any event. On the positive side can be noted the final of Acapulco and the 1/8 finals of the Australian Open. While Sasha has quite the uneven season and may be able to Express themselves better in the second half of the year.
23-year-old Briton for the first time playing in Montreal, having won at the start of a good win over strong on any surface, a Hungarian by Bucovice 5-7, 6-2, 6-3.
In the current season that is on hard norrie has achieved the best results, having won 14 wins in 22 matches. Already at the start of the year Cameron played in the finals of Auckland, where he was on the grid Pen, Souza, Fritz and Struff, but lost American Sandgren 4-6, 2-6.
You can also note the semifinals of Acapulco and Atlanta already carried out after the herbal segment. Last week norrie played in Los Cabos, where conceded in equal struggle in the 1/8 finals of the best Kazakh tennis player Mikhail Kukushkin 5-7, 5-7.
The guys will play each other for the second time in the ATP tour. Debut confrontation took place this season in the semifinals of Acapulco, where Zverev won a difficult 2-setevuyu win 7-6, 6-3, after failing in the end to win the tournament.
Twice the players met at the ITF tournament and there norrie was twice stronger, the truth was that in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
The coefficients and forecast
Bookmakers have identified Zverev status of the obvious favourite of this match, offering to put on his win factor of 1.3, on norrie for 3.82.
As for me, the quotes are completely objective with the current rating of the opponents, the history of confrontation, achievements in career and gaming manners. Still, Cameron has a killer flow and taking into account the good of the game the German at the reception, their games will not be able to take without problems, spending a lot of energy. And on the back line of Alexander, by far, will have an advantage. Even against the backdrop of the first meeting on hard after a decent pause.
Think Zverev is quite able to repeat the result of the first meeting between the guys and win a comfortable dry victory. Sure, a class of German head and shoulders above and in this fight he will be able to confirm on the matter.
