Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz: Prediction

In a head-to-head record, Zverev enjoys a lead against Taylor. However, the unpredictable nature of matches at All England Club shall never eliminate the possibility of an upset. The German national is yet to drop a set in the tournament, whereas Taylor has had to fight for his survival on the grass court.

Taylor suffered an injury to his right knee during the Roland Garros, whereas Zverev made the semifinals of the tournament. With two titles this year, the World No.6 is enjoying a great run of form in 2021, despite a minor injury to his elbow in April this year.

Overall prediction stands in favor of Zverev, as the German has proved his ability to win rounds without dropping a single set. Zverev will be aiming for his first grass-court title and a better finish than his previous Grand Slam event.

Prediction: Zverev to win in three sets.
