Zverev is super dangerous on fast hardcourt with his big serves, great court coverage and solid groundstrokes but will this be enough against a djokovic who it seems is getting better with more pressure being put on his shoulders. I seriously want to see a tight match and see how djokovic responds with the pressure he has to face with each match passing
That’s a good point. Yes Zverev has a big game and big serve and weapons. I hoping Djoko can keep winning with ease but I think this match will be tougher to do that. I feel with the gold medal being the one thing djoko doesn’t have on his tennis CV there’s bound to be a roadblock or bumpy point and this might be it.
Yeah djoko is a mental giant overcoming so many hurdles especially this 2021 but this Olympic semi final demon is still another one he has to slay. He broke curses at the french and now it’s the Olympic semi final curse to break. Against a difficult opponent in Zverev who likes this fast surface and Best of 3 format.
Djokovic though is super confident and on a 21 match win streak. He’s serving well in the main, returning great, moving well and hitting his BH and FH with purpose and accuracy. He’s coming to net well too. Zverev has been equally impressive in many aspects of his game too this week.
I feel the sets will be close like Australia. It will come down to big points and mentality. This year so far Djokovic has won every big moment and mental battle. Will it continue or will Zverev be the one to end his reign of dominance?
I see Djokovic the slight favourite but this could easily go 3 close sets. I hope Djokovic prevails but respect Zverev a lot. I respect his personality and game and he’s coming of age and definitely has a bright future ahead at only 24.
