Tokyo 2020 Olympic champion Alexander Zverev will begin his journey at the US Open 2021 today against American Sam Querrey, World No. 74. Here, check out everything there’s to know about this tennis match such as the preview, information, H2H, predictions, odds and how to watch it in the US.
Zverev, 24, was close to winning his first major at the US Open last year, when he failed two points short against Dominic Thiem. However, this time the German is coming to New York in a sweet moment (at least in the court while the domestic abuse allegations against him are resurfacing) after winning in Tokyo and Cincinnati, and he’s confident to finally win a Grand Slam.
On the other hand, Querrey, 33, is coming to the US Open with almost no momentum, after losing in the first round of the Washington Open against Kei Nishikori. The American has never beaten Zverev before so this first round match will be a tough test for him.
