ATP Finals 2021: Novak Djokovic vs. Alexander Zverev Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 ATP Finals as Novak Djokovic takes on Alexander Zverev in the Semi-Finals on Saturday, November 20th, 2021.

Will Novak Djokovic get the win? Will Alexander Zverev pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a blockbuster of a matchup coming up for a fifth time this year. Who will move on to the semifinals at the 2021 ATP Finals?

Novak Djokovic has been incredibly solid this week, easily cruising through his opponents. His serve has been better than ever, hitting the ball extremely clean and utilizing his improved net game often. He does not have an easy one coming up as he takes on Alexander Zverev for a fifth time this year. It has been one of the best rivalries of the season, and they’ve played so many incredible matches, particularly their semifinal at the US Open where Djokovic won in five. There are a lot of long rallies, but on a really quick court like this, a lot of the results will depend on who can be more aggressive on the return. Zverev has a bigger serve, that’s for sure, but he can be inconsistent with it, not to mention he’s playing the greatest returner of all time. Let’s see if Djokovic can continue his incredible form to edge out his rival and book his spot in the final at the 2021 ATP Finals.

Alexander Zverev has played some solid tennis this week to reach this position to take on World No.1 Novak Djokovic. It will be an incredibly tough match for him, but it is definitely doable. Zverev has not been playing his best tennis this week, whereas in Tokyo he was, which allowed him to upset Djokovic. Here though, the courts are indoors where Djokovic is a lot more experienced, but results can vary as we saw in 2018 as well as last year. The matchup can be pretty back and forth although Djokovic has won most of their meetings. This week though, Djokovic has proved to be the more consistent and solid player, so I expect him to edge out Zverev and fight for a record-tying title at the 2021 ATP Finals.

Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev have met 10 times before, with Novak Djokovic leading the head to head 7-3. This matchup has been very interesting, with Djokovic taking most of the meetings but Zverev playing his part, defeating him in two finals and at the Olympics this year. Zverev has the ability to win, especially if he is serving well, but to bet against Novak Djokovic on an indoor hardcourt is dangerous. Djokovic does have a lot of pressure, as he knows even if he gets past Zverev, he will likely have to take on Medvedev to tie Federer’s record. Still, Djokovic hasn’t played nearly as much as his two main competitors, so I definitely expect him to get past Zverev in the end to book his spot in the final and clash for his 6th title here at the 2021 ATP Finals.
