Join us and find out our top betting selection for the ATP Miami Open Quarterfinals Day 2. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab this valuable tennis pick.

Alexander Zverev (16) vs. Nick Kyrgios (12)

Nick Kyrgios continues his successful journey in Miami with the Australian improving his overall record on this event to 7 – 1 after a straight sets win over David Goffin. Known as one of the best servers on the ATP World Tour, Kyrgios won 94.70% of his service games throughout the Miami Open with an impressive average of 0.95 aces per service game. Despite his brilliant level on serve against Goffin in the previous round, Nick was far from impressive on the baseline with a poor 0.55 winners / unforced errors ratio.

At the age of 19, Alexander Zverev makes his debut on an ATP Masters 1000 quarterfinals. After an easy 6 – 0 6 – 3 victory over Yen-Hsun Lu on the opening round, Zverev featured two remarkable comebacks from set down against John Isner and Stan Wawrinka. Looking now at Alexander’s numbers in the previous round, the highlight clearly goes to his forehand with 10 winners and only 5 unforced errors with that shot. On the other hand, Stan couldn’t find an answer to Zverev’s baseline consistency with 37 unforced errors and only 19 winners.

This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Kyrgios emerging victorious from their previous encounter two weeks ago in Indian Wells by 6 – 3 6 – 4.

Despite Nick’s recent win on the Californian desert, the lower bouncing conditions in Miami should benefit Zverev on this contest. Having said that, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Alexander’s betting odds by adding his set handicap to your betting picks in a match where the German should win at least one set.
