Matchup: Daniil Medvedev v Alexander Zverev
Pick: 8* Medvedev Moneyline
Zverev leads the head-to-head but Medvedev's game has developed significantly over the past 18 months and this is a favorable matchup indoors.
Medvedev beat Zverev in Paris last week, this was despite Zverev playing peak tennis for the first set before breaking down the German from the baseline.
Medvedev's wingspan helps him return more of Zverev's serves and his flat ball striking doesn't offer Zverev opportunities to attack, Zverev can be lulled into playing passive tennis against Medvedev.
Zverev's strongest wing is his backhand and while it's a flat, powerful shot Medvedev enjoys absorbing it's pace, he has the overall edge in the rallies indoors.
Medvedev is rolling again after a slump in form, expect his dominance of the longer exchanges to prove crucial. Medvedev Moneyline.
