Here, check out everything there’s to know about this tennis match such as the preview, information, predictions, odds and how to watch it in the US.
Zverev has been considered for a long time one of the best players of the “old Next Gen”. However, the German, 24, has always struggled in the majors. Last year, he was two points away from winning the US Open, but Dominic Thiem fought back and left him without the title. Now, the Olympic champion Zverev is coming strong to the third round, after beating Sam Querrey and Albert Ramos-Vinolas.
Meanwhile, Jack Sock has reached the third round of the US Open after winning two tough matches against Yoshihito Nishioka in fourth sets and Alexander Bulbik in five. Sock, ranked 184, has been struggling to get good results in the last couple of years but he could get a huge boost if he passes over Zverev today.
