Alexander Zverev is all set to face Taylor Fritz in the quarterfinal showdown at the ongoing Italian Open 2024, which is slated to take place on May 15. Notably, Zverev knocked out Aleksandar Vukic and Luciano Darderi to make himself in the fourth round, where he defeated Nun Borges. However, both star players performed exceptionally well, but it was Borges who blinked first in the game.

On the other hand, Taylor Fritz gets a great win over Fabio Fognini and Korda to make himself available in the fourth round, where he has completely outclassed Dmitrov. Notably, his normal resitance from his opponent in the first set raised his level to win the ultimate battle for him. Fritz fought valiantly in the second set, but he slipped away in the tiebreak. However, he saved nine points before he finally catapulted on the 10th one.

Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz head-to-head

The quarterfinal match between Taylor Fritz and Alexander Zverev at this season’s Italian Open will also mark their eighth meeting on the ATP circuit.

Notably, Zverev has around 135 wins against 52 losses on the clay, while Fritz's 46-33 has the same record on the surface. However, Fritz looks very dominant on a roll during this clay swing, and he reached his first career final on the surface in Munich and followed up with Madrid. Notably, he has now made the last eight in Rome for the first time as well.

Pick: Taylor Fritz to win in three sets.
