Edmund vs Zverev / ATP Shanghai – Quarter final matches at Masters in Shanghai bring us some interesting duels, and we have for this analysis selected a duel between the British K. Edmund and German A. Zverev. Both players have mastered their opponents in the 1/8 finals, so that Edmund was better than N. Jarry, while Zverev was expectedly eliminated by A. de Minaur.
Edmund vs Zverev begins 12.10.2018 at 07:00 CET
After Murray was out of shape because of injury, Edmund became the best British tennis player at the moment. This 23-year-old tennis player has this week reached his best career rating, which is the 14th position at the ATP rankings. Edmund's professional career lasts from 2012, and during that time he has made 82 wins and as many defeats. If we only look at this season, the situation is much better because the British has achieved a ratio of 29:19.
Edmund does not have any ATP trophies, and he was close to his first trophy at the tournament in Marrakech this season, where he played the finals in which he lost from the veteran and a countryman, P. Andujar. This result is worth as much as the placement in the finals, Edmund has won at the start of this year at Australian Open, where he as the most surprise reached the semi-finals, where he was stopped by M. Cilic.
Zverev has played his best tennis last season when he reached 3rd place in the ATP ranking. In the past season, this German has become the Masters winner, so this year he is expected to make a step forward. Despite the fact that Zverev has won three titles in this year and one of them from Masters in Madrid, there is still the impression that this German could have done much more this season. We all know that Djokovic was in a very poor shape at the beginning of this season, so the only serious competitors were Federer and Nadal.
In such a state of competition Zverev could have done much more but he unexpectedly lost the matches against the weaker opponents. The best example for this is Roland Garros, where he recently played five sets, while he was stopped at the US Open by Kohlschreiber, in Beijing by M. Jaziri, and in Cincinnati by R. Hasse … Therefore, it is clear that the results of the best German tennis player had to be better.
Edmund vs Zverev PICK
All three previously played matches between these two players ended in favour of Zverev. There is no doubt that the German is now the favourite, but as we have already said, his form is subject to great ups and downs. On the other side of the net there is a young British who has just reached his best career rating, and this tennis player can be a very dangerous opponent. Accordingly, the favoured German tennis player will have a tough test and we expect to see a greater number of games than the offered threshold.
Pick: over 21.5 games
