Both of these players are feeling a bit of early pressure in the ATP World Tour Finals.

Zverev was beaten by Daniil Medvedev in his opener, while Schwartzman was swept aside by tournament favourite Novak Djokovic.

So the winner of this second round robin match will keep their qualification hopes alive. It’s Zverev who is the favourite to do that.

Alexander Zverev Preview – A match Zverev should win

There was a really tricky opening fixture at the ATP World Tour Finals 2020 for Alexander Zverev.

He was up against Daniil Medvedev and suffered a straight-sets defeat.

That was after losing to the Russain last weekend as well in the final of the ATP Paris Masters.

So Zverev, who has had off-court distractions, needs to rally himself on Wednesday.

For tennis betting on this match, Zverev is the 1/4 odds-on favourite* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).

There is nothing between the two players in the head to head, quite interestingly.

It has been two wins each from their four previous ATP meetings. One of those was this year and it went to Zverev.

Our betting prediction:
Zverev 6-3 First Set Score

(odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November)


That one meeting that Zverev and Schwartzman had this year was in the final of Cologne. Zverev powered his way to a 6-2 6-1 win in that fixture.

It was a dominant display and that was an indoor hard court tournament, like this one is. This is where a bit of stats for tennis betting helps us out.

Zverev has won the two previous indoor hard court matches between the two players. So there is the trend.

An Zverev 2-0 in set betting for Wednesday is at 4/6* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).


Diego Schwartzman Preview – Schwartzman with an uphill battle

This is the debut in the ATP World Tour Finals for Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman and his first match didn’t go well.

But then, he was facing Novak Djokvic and he was brushed aside easily by the Serbian in that fixture on Monday.

It was a 6-3 6-2 loss that Schwartzman suffered in that one.

He has had his big moments this year of course, having broken into the top ten for the first time in his career.

He had good runs in Rome and then at the French Open when he reached the semi finals.

But those were clay court events where he really excels the most. Now he is in danger of bowing out of the ATP Finals early.

There will be one match to come after this as he faces Daniil Medvedev in the final round robin fixture.

Punters are looking at a quote of 3/1 in the match outright for a Schwartzman victory in this match* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).

Diego Schwartzman did have a run to the quarter finals of the Paris Masters in the week leading up to this tournament.

He was totally shut down in the quarter finals by Daniil Medvedev, who again, he will be playing next in the Finals.

So the window of opportunity looks pretty small for the Argentine in this one. We don’t see him getting on the board.

A Schwartzman +4.5 handicap is at 5/6* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).


Alexander Zverev vs Diego Schwartzman Betting Advice

We only see a win for Zverev in this one. That loss against Medvedev was the first time that Zverev had lost his opening match in four appearances at this tournament.

Zverev didn’t seem to be distracted by what has been happening off the court, so we see him coming in and getting control of this match.


Key Facts – Alexander Zverev vs Diego Schwartzman Betting Tip

  • Alexander Zverev lost to Daniil Medvev in his first match
  • Alexander Zverev is W2 L2 against Schwartzman
  • Diego Schwartzman lost heavily to Novak Djokovic in his opener


It is really the second serve of Zverev which has been letting him down this season. It did on Monday. He took only four of 19 points on his second serve.

But that may not come back to bite him too hard in Wednesday’s match. With Djokovic still to come, he needs to win this.

Schwartzman was outclassed in his opening match and doesn’t look to have the game on the hard court to be a big threat.
