Sascha is having a rather “flat” 2019. The German is not really hitting the headlines as he did when he won the ATP Finals last year. He reached “only” the 4th round in Melbourne and then he played in Acapulco where he lost in the final to Nick Kyrgios.
Sascha had a rather smooth 2nd round after he won against Martin Klizan that withdrew in the second set when he was 3-6 0-2 down.
Ranked no.55, the German has a 7-6 win-loss record in 2019. He reached the 3rd in Indian Wells after beating John Millman 6-1 6-3 and Richard Berankis 3-6 6-3 6-2.
Head to head Sascha Zverev vs. Jan-Lennard Struff
This will be the 5th time that Sascha and Jan-Lennard face each other, but it will be the first time on hard courts as they have only played on clay courts so far.
