  • Sock leads the H2H 2-1 but their last encounter was 4 years ago.
  • Zverev is in the form of his life (13 matches win streak) and serving well. Has not faced a single breakpoint yet.
  • The faster surface this year should help Sock's game. He will have the overwhelming support of the crowd too.

Sock is playing much better lately and has started to win matches. He can probably make kt competitive here.

Come on, Zverev is steamrolling, he'll win this tournament, even Djokovic won't stop him.

Was ahead 6-1 6-0 3-0 against Ramos, showed his mercy in letting his opponent to win 3 more games.

Massive beatdown is coming in 3R.

Zed, straight sets but close for a while. The adjustment to cooler nighttime conditions might be a bit tricky for the #4 seed. The closest he has come to losing in two months was in his last night match, played at Cincinnati when Tsits was up 4-1 in the third but crumbled to lose in a decisive TB. Having to inject pace, particularly on his serve, in cooler conditions sometimes makes him error prone.

Zod in straights. So, probably Sock in five.

I don't see Zed dropping a set here, but I wouldn't be surprised if he were to lose his serve for the first time this tournament and maybe even be taken to TB

I will be shocked (and disappointed) if Zverev loses this match. He is playing the best tennis of his career lately and I expect that to continue. I think he has a strong chance to make it to the final.

Of course this has been a tournament of upsets but I would truly be shocked if this was one of them.

Zverev will make it to the final but will lose to Medvedev, but if Zverev continues to play at the level he is playing he certainly could win the tournament!

I expect an easy win for Zverev tonight. The way this tournament is going though who knows what will happen? I really don't like Jack Sock at all. I think Zverev is going to crush him in straight sets.

It's honestly crazy to see Zverev be an over 20:1 favourite against anyone in a 3R slam match. Even against Sock.

Tennis girlfriend/wife is a definite category of look. Not that every partner of a tennis player looks like that, but if you said "she has a pro tennis player wife/girlfriend look", I think a lot of tennis fans would think the same thing.

Unique strategy on the first point with a pure s&v m. 0-15.

serve and stay back; 2 aces and it’s 40-15 so no harm .

Sock’s wife? She dances for the Charlotte Hornets NBA team and has won beauty pageants.
