Zverev vs Griekspoor Predictions and Betting Tips - French Open 2024

The third round of the French Open 2024 has set the stage for several thrilling encounters, featuring prominent players such as Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev and Aryna Sabalenka. Among this exciting lineup is an intriguing clash between Alexander Zverev and Tallon Griekspoor.

Zverev is in excellent form, having not dropped a single set so far in the tournament. He defeated the king of clay, Rafael Nadal, in straight sets 6-3, 7-6(5), 6-3, and then overcame David Goffin 7-6(4), 6-2, 6-2 in the second round. The Italian Open champion remains one of the top favourites to win the title at Roland-Garros.

On the other hand, Griekspoor secured a victory over Mackenzie McDonald 6-3, 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 in his opening match and continued his strong performance by defeating Luciano Darderi 7-6(2), 6-3, 6-3 in the second round. Despite clay not being his surface of choice, the Dutchman has managed to maintain his rhythm and stands as a challenging contender in Paris.

This day-seven clash between Zverev and Griekspoor is going to be a nail-biting thriller. Who is going to be your pick for this match? Read on for our Zverev vs Griekspoor prediction and betting tips.

How the Bookies View It: Zverev to Dominate

Bookmaker bet365 is all in on Zverev for this one, making him the favourite at 1/9. Griekspoor stands far behind at 11/2, while set betting suggests a 3-0 win for Zverev, with this result paying 20/21.

Recent Head-to-Head: Advantage Zverev

Zverev and Griekspoor have stood against each other four times in the past, with Zverev leading the head-to-head with 3-1. Their last match was at Indian Wells in the Round of 32, where Zverev got the better of Griekspoor in straight sets.

Anything Else Catch the Eye?

Zverev has made it to the semi-finals at Roland Garros each of the past three years. He has secured one clay court title this year, winning the Italian Open. Zverev has maintained a solid 28-9 win-loss record this year, with his win over David Goffin an eighth consecutive victory.

The German possesses one of the finest backhands in the game, and his forehand has improved drastically. His proficiency in volleying was evident in his match against Nadal. All of these factors could pose a significant threat to Griekspoor.

World No. 25 Griekspoor secured an impressive straight-sets victory against Luciano Darderi, but overcoming the current form of Zverev will require an exceptional performance. 

While the Dutchman managed to defeat Zverev in three sets at the Rotterdam Open last season, he currently trails 3-1 in their overall head-to-head encounters, including a straight-sets loss at Indian Wells in March.
