I prefer Tsitsipas' all-court game; very fun to watch... but I suspect Zverev will have a better career.

Rule of Age 22.

No all-time player failed to reach Slam Semi before turning 22.

Fed cut it close but reached two quarters at 19.

Zed will have better career despite Tsits prettier game. It's usually uglier than prettier. Fed was an exception. Just remember Gasquet.

Think I agree with this. Zverev maybe a bit more solid all-round. Tsits more entertaining.

Did expect the poll to very close, though, but Zed with the early lead.

Both are good tennis athletes / movers for their heights. Both seem to be improving their serves too. Could become an influential rivalry.

@Meles, hit me with a stat-based prognosis

Tsitsi return stats bad. Tsitsistats are really bad on HC. Only 51% games won on HC, which is almost 4% short of Zverev and closer to 5% down on Khachanov. But he didn't really break through until Barcelona.

Tsitsipas has the forehand and transition game that Zverev largely lacks. If Zverev had that he'd be dominating for sure. Zverev has more upside, and tennis wise his flaws are more fixable.

But Tsitsipas seems to have his head screwed right on in Slams, which is not something Zverev can say.
