Who is going to advance to the semis?
Zverev win guarantees the place in semis for him.
Hurkacz can advance under certain conditions as Sinner is another candidate.

I think Zed takes this comfortably, but I would love nothing more than to have nice-guy Hubi give 2021 one last #ABZ hurrah.

I think Hubi focused so much on trying to beat Med (and you have to admit he did ok) that he hasn't got a lot left in him.

But I'd love to see him take a set.

Round Robin stage is pretty funny: Hurkacz has already lost two matches, he can be set down against Zverev just to launch his A-game and cruise to the semifinal assuming Sinner lose on Thursday.

Something tells me the Italian federation will promise Hubi... uh, one very enjoyable evening if he can somehow pull this one off. ;)

The one positive Hubi can take into this match is that it's not clay, which I think it's fair to say is his worst surface.

I read Hurkacz not even sure to play, he didn't practice today. They already called Auger-Aliassime and Karatsev in case Hurkacz pulls out.
If Hurkacz is replaced and Zverev loses 6-0 6-0, all he'd need is Medvedev to beat Sinner and he'd still qualify. (with only 1 walkover win against Berrettini... lol)

Sinner has a chance if he wins and Zverev loses.
Hurkacz also has a chance if he wins and Sinner loses.

Zverev should win though. The match against Medvedev was the best of the tournament. He was 2 points away and his return on the BP at 5-5 was out for 1 mili. Very high level match that could've gone either way. I don't see him losing his 3rd match after this.

Hurkacz is too inconsistent these days, so going with Zverev. If Hubi has one of his days and plays lights out like he occasionally knows, everything is possible...

He is apparently going to play, despite considering withdrawal until a few minutes ago... Too bad. Crazy AK might have woken up in a good mood and had a fighting chance. An injured Hubert has absolutely zero hopes of pulling this off.

Does Zverev need to win the match to move on to the semis? If he wins one set and loses the other two does he still move on?

I will interested to see how Djokovic plays his dead rubber match tomorrow, considering he is very likely playing Zverev in the semis.

He won't tank in an obvious way like Thiem has been doing. But if he loses the 1st set he will probably go into energy conservation mode. Will mostly win in 2 though.

Yes. I don't think he will want to fight hard in the 3rd.

Zverev and his trademark "Slowest in the ATP" second serves...

Hurkacz is hanging on in there... but I think if this goes to a tiebreak Zverev will win it...
