The world no.3 – Alexander Zverev – couldn’t have asked for a better debut at the O2 Arena in London. Despite his lack of experience at this level, Zverev started his campaign in London with a three-set victory against Marin Cilic. Known as one of the best competitors in the game, the 20-year-old improved his incredible record in decisive sets this year to 18 – 8. On the other hand, the 2014 US Open champion couldn’t find the answer to Alexander’s baseline consistency with the German winning 77.27% of the points over 9 shots.
Roger Federer opened his quest for a record seventh title at the ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday by beating the debutant Jack Sock in straight sets. As usual, Federer’s forehand proved decisive with the 19-time Grand Slam champion ending the match with an outstanding 1.88 winners / unforced errors with that shot. Adding to this, the six-time champion didn’t allow a single break point opportunity to Sock with Federer winning 90.00% of the points behind his first serve.
This will be the 5th official meeting between these two players with each of them winning two of their previous four encounters on the ATP World Tour.
The sportsbooks expect a straightforward win from Federer with Pinnacle offering only -400 for his victory. Even though we agree with Roger’s favoritism, it’s impossible to find any value on his current tennis betting odds. Adding to this, Zverev is far from an easy match-up for the Swiss with two wins already throughout his career against this opponent. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this Tuesday’s encounter.Free Tennis Pick: Over 21.5 (-119)Best Line Offered: Pinnacle
