On September 8, at 20-30 Moscow time, Zverev will fight with Harris in the 1/4 finals of the US Open. Can Lloyd create trouble for Alexander? Bookmakers do not doubt the German’s easy victory.
Zverev is the 4th racket in the world. He has won 4 tournaments this season, including the Olympics and the Masters in Cincinnati 2.5 weeks ago. At the US Open, he started with very easy victories over Querry and Ramos, not allowing them to even reach the break point, and in the 3rd round he won a strong-willed victory over Sok (3-6, 6-2, 6-3, 2- 1, American refusal), missing one game on his serve. The hardest part was in the 4th round against Sinner: 6-4, 6-4, 7-6. In the third set, Sasha led 4-2, then relaxed, but still won the game, playing 5 set points.
Lloyd George Harris
Harris is the 46th racket in the world. This season, for the first time in his career, he reached the finals of the ATP-500 tournament (in Dubai), and one can also note the victory over Nadal at the tournament in Washington. Now Lloyd has achieved a high result at the TBSH, although he could have been eliminated in the first round, because he was 1-2 behind Khachanov in sets: 6-4, 1-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. After that, Lloyd defeated Escobedo (6-4, 6-4, 6-2) and Shapovalov (6-4, 6-4, 6-4) in three games, and then won another strong-willed, but very confident victory over Opelka : 6-7, 6-1, 6-3.
Personal meeting statistics
Account in personal meetings: 2-0 in favor of Zverev. Three weeks ago, at the Masters in Cincinnati (2nd round), Alexander beat the South African 7-6, 6-2. Then Lloyd did not have a single chance to make a break.
The final last season is Zverev’s best result at the US Open.

Forecast from LiveResult.ru
Harris is now showing tennis of a very high level, and he is quite capable of beating top-level players, but this will not happen in the next fight, because Zverev is now on the rise, won two tournaments in a row and looks very confident. The German plays almost perfectly in games on his serve, and Lloyd may not count on more than one break. On the other hand, Harris also has a very strong and dangerous first serve, so the games should be tight.
