In a new edition of the ATP 500 of Vienna, Frances Tiafoe and Alexander Zverev will face each other in search of consecration as the new winner of the Austrian contest.
Being old friends on and off the court, this will be the seventh meeting between the two of them. While Sascha has five victories, having won the last duel in Beijing 2019, the American barely achieved a positive result against the German in the Cincinnati Masters 1000 2017.
However, we must take into account the great present of Big foe. It comes from leaving on the way to Stefanos Tsitsipas, Diego Schwartzman and Jannik Sinner, three players who know what it is to be part of the Top 10. The American seems to fear nothing or anyone and will go in search of his second ATP-level title (The first was Delray Beach in 2018).
On the other hand, as if the gold in Tokyo weren’t enough for him, Alex Zverev wants to continue expanding his 2021 and be the player with the most tournaments won. The German wants to be crowned in Vienna in order to reach the mark of Casper ruud with five titles in his favor. In the event that I managed to consecrate myself, would match his 2017 as the best seasons of his career.
The final will begin at 10am (Argentina time) and can be seen on ESPN on Star +.
