Alcaraz vs Zverev Prediction and Betting Tips - French Open 2024 Final

The French Open 2024 has reached the grand finale of the men's draw. After a number of intense matches over the past two weeks, the tournament has whittled down from the initial 128 contenders to just two men standing, Alexander Zverev and Carlos Alcaraz.

Brace yourselves, because this match is going to be an absolute thriller. If you're looking to place some bets and need a little nudge in the right direction, read on for our Zverev vs Alcaraz prediction and betting tips.

Zverev and Alcaraz will square off for the French Open title on Sunday, June 9. Both of them have fought through some very intense matches to reach the final and will be going all out to bag their first-ever French Open title.

Zverev has maintained consistent form this season, with a 28-9 win-loss record and a title in Rome. 

He has a solid record at Roland-Garros but has never made the finals till now. The German earned his spot into the final by defeating Ruud in a four-setter 2-6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-2, avenging his loss in the Roland-Garros 2023 semi-final last year. 

Alcaraz, on the other hand, has performed brilliantly this season. 

Maintaining an 18-5 win-loss record, he also won the Indian Wells. However, he suffered a forearm injury due to which he had to withdraw from the Monte-Carlo Masters and Barcelona Open and miss the Italian Open in Rome. 

Despite concerns about his injuries, Alcaraz performed admirably at Roland-Garros, defeating Jannik Sinner in the semi-finals, who recently became the world No. 1. 

How the Bookies View it: Alcaraz Favourite

Bookmaker bet365 is leaning towards Alcaraz winning this match, making him the favourite at 1/3. Zverev, on the other hand, is sitting at 12/5. Set betting suggests a straight-set victory for Alcaraz 3-0, with this result paying 2/1.

Recent Head-to-Head: Advantage Zverev

The French Open final matchup is going to be the 10th encounter between Zverev and Alcaraz. They have faced each other nine times before and Zverev leads their head-to-head at 5-4, but Alcaraz has a 2-1 edge on clay. Their most recent encounter was in the quarter-finals of the Indian Wells, where Alcaraz defeated Zverev 6-3, 6-1.

Anything Else Catch the Eye?

Zverev will be stepping onto the court with a clear mind, having wrapped up his long-standing domestic abuse case with an out-of-court settlement with his ex. 

After knocking out 14-time champion Nadal in the first round, he’s survived a couple of gruelling five-setters in the third and fourth rounds. Having reached the finals, Zverev will be striving hard for the title. He has saved 70 percent of the break points while winning 75 percent of the first serves.

Alcaraz already has titles on the US Open’s hard courts and Wimbledon’s grass courts, and now he's just one win away from adding Roland-Garros to his collection. If he pulls it off, he'll be the youngest man ever to conquer major championships on all three surfaces. As it stands, he's already the youngest to reach finals on all three surfaces.

Zverev vs Alcaraz Betting Tips & Prediction

Both Zverev and Alcaraz have had their fair share of ups and downs this season, but they will be gunning hard for their first French Open title. Zverev’s been stellar so far, but if we had to pick, we’re rooting for Alcaraz to come out on top in this showdown.

  • Alcaraz to win 3-1 @ 11/4
  • Total sets over 3.5 @ 11/20

Zverev and Alcaraz will play on Court Philippe-Chatrier, not before 2:30pm local time.
