Zverev vs Albot: prediction for the Australian Open match
Alexander Zverev goes against Radu Albot in the third round match of the Australian Open. Who will become one of the last 16? Our prediction is in the article below.
Alexander Zverev cruised to victory over both his opponents at the Australian Open. In the opening match, the German athlete defeated his compatriot Daniel Altmaier in straight sets (7-6, 6-1, 7-6), and then got a landslide victory over John Millman (6-4, 6-4, 6-0). Zverev is on top form right now and one of the favourites to win the trophy.
Radu Albot has already recorded five victories in Melbourne. The Moldovan tennis player passed three qualifying rounds before reaching the main draw, and then prevailed over Yoshihito Nishioka (6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2) and Aleksandar Vukic (6-4, 7-6, 6-4). Last season, Albot was eliminated in the third round of the Australian Open.
In 4 of the last 5 matches of Albot, at least 10 games were played in the first set
Zverev played 3 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
We do not expect Albot to create any serious problems for third seed. The Moldovan tennis player is in great shape, but Zverev is simply too good at the moment.
Our prediction - total under 29 games
Zverev easily won the first two sets against Albot at the US Open in 2019, but then as easily lost the third and the fourth sets. However, we think that the German has made a huge progress in the last years and won't let that happen again.
Second bet - handicap (-9) to Zverev
