ATP Finals predictions: Turin final to go the distance

ATP Finals predictions: Turin final to go the distance

The end-of-season ATP Finals tournament concludes on Sunday as Alexander Zverev meets Daniil Medvedev in the final in Turin.

The showpiece event brought together the top eight players in the world rankings to compete in a round-robin format and now there are two men left standing.

We have had ATP Finals predictions every day over the course of the week and we have three more for today’s final.

Alexander Zverev vs Daniil Medvedev

Medvedev won the ATP Finals last year and is the favourite to retain his title after Zverev’s surprise victory over Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals.

Djokovic had breezed through to the last four without dropping a set as he chased a record-equalling sixth title and a first for six years.

But third seed Zverev, who ended the world number one’s hopes of a Golden Slam by beating him at the Olympics in Tokyo, played a superb match to win 7-6 (4) 4-6 6-3.

The 2018 champion will take on last year’s winner Medvedev, who had a straightforward 6-4 6-2 victory against Norwegian debutant Casper Ruud.

Medvedev defeated Zverev in the group stages in a match that went right to the wire and he has won their last five meetings.

Tuesday’s group match could barely have been closer, with the last two sets both going to a tie-break.

The fact Medvedev used less energy in the semi-final could give him the edge today and we fancy him to win at 1.53 as the first of our ATP Finals predictions.

Zverev will be full of confidence after beating Djokovic, though, and another close contest is expected so the price boost of 2.60 for the match to go to a third set also appeals.

For the last of our ATP Finals betting tips, we’re also backing the first set to go to a tie-break at 2.75 given that there were two in Tuesday’s meeting.
