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

Alexander Zverev (16) vs. Novak Djokovic (2)

As we predicted in our Internazionali BNL D’Italia semifinals analysis, Novak Djokovic proved too strong for Dominic Thiem. With one of his best performances in recent months, Djokovic only allowed one game to Thiem in the previous round. After this astonishing triumph, it’s clear that the Serbian is returning to his best level. Besides ending the match with 14 winners and only 6 unforced errors, Djokovic managed to return 86% of Dominic’s serves throughout the match.

At the age of 20, Alexander Zverev became the youngest player to reach a Masters 1000 final since Novak Djokovic back in 2007. Adding to this, Zverev already secured his career-high ranking next week with an unprecedented appearance in the top 15. Taking a look now at Alexander’s campaign on this event, the German reaches this stage of the competition after defeating one of the best servers in history – John Isner. Despite Isner’s undeniable quality on serve, Zverev managed to break the American three times. On the other hand, the German didn’t concede a single service game throughout the entire match.  

With Djokovic playing at such a high level, it’s impossible to go against the Serbian. Even though Zverev is never an easy opponent, Novak should be too strong for the German. Due to the low price on Djokovic’s betting odds on the moneyline, our suggestion is for you to add his -1.5 Set Handicap to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this Sunday’s final.
