What to know about Alexander Zverev
Alexander Zverev vs. Stefanos Tsitsipas betting odds for Zverev: +174
Save for a minor hiccup in the first round, 24-year-old Alexander Zverev has been impressive in the 2021 French Open.
Zverev secured his third consecutive straight-sets victory of the tournament after dispatching Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the quarterfinals in dominant fashion; 6-4, 6-1, 6-1. This was the exact same result from the German upstart’s fourth-round match against former top 10 player Kei Nishikori, proving that his rocky start at Roland Garros is well behind him now.
But as convincing as Zverev’s last two wins were, it’s worth noting that he’ll be facing his first seeded opponent in the tournament this Thursday. What’s more concerning is that the former U.S. Open finalist has faced Tsitsipas seven times in the ATP Tour and winning just two of those meetings.

Alexander Zverev vs. Stefanos Tsitsipas betting odds for Tsitsipas: -208
Is there a new challenger to Rafael Nadal’s crown as the king of the clay courts? 22-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas is certainly making a great case for himself, as he recently eliminated No. 2 seed Daniil Medvedev from the French Open in straight sets; 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-5.
Tsitsipas has been a beast on the red turf, going 21-3 in clay-court tournaments this year along with two wins at Lyon and Monte Carlo. Two of his three losses have come at the hands of living legends Rafael Nadal (Barcelona finals) and Novak Djokovic (Rome quarterfinals), who are both expected to face one another in the other possible semifinal bout at Roland Garros this week.
As stated earlier, Tsitsipas is 5-2 lifetime against Zverev. On the other hand, it was the latter who dealt the latest blow, defeating the Athens native in the final round at Acapulco in March. Nevertheless, Tsitsipas did emerge victorious over Zverev in their only meeting on clay back in 2019 at the Madrid Masters quarterfinals.
