Both previous matches against Dusan Lajovic and Alexander Zverev took place at the French Open in 2018 and 2019. On both occasions, Lajovic stretched Zverev to five sets lasting over 40 games.

On the hard courts of the Australian Open, Zverev’s bigger serve should prove more effective and assist him to a more straightforward victory over Lajovic.

Dusan Lajovic Form


Dusan Lajovic came into the Australian Open on a seven-match losing streak dating back to last year’s French Open. He lost both his warm-up matches at the ATP Cup to big servers Milos Raonic and Jan-Lennard Struff.

All three of Lajovic’s Australian Open matches so far have lasted over three hours. He played five sets against Sergiy Stakhovsky in the first round, then four against Alexander Bublik and beat Pedro Martinez 6-7(6), 7-5, 6-1, 6-4.

Lajovic is not really a player with outright powerful weapons. The fast hard courts at the Australian Open might work against him if Zverev plays with sufficient aggression.

Alexander Zverev Form


A semifinalist at the Australian Open in 2020, Zverev has a habit of playing long matches in early rounds of Grand Slams. 

After scraping past Marcos Giron in the first round, however, Zverev has been efficient. He beat Maxime Cressy 7-5, 6-4, 6-3 and then Adrian Mannarino 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. Zverev saved all seven break points he faced against Cressy and Mannarino, and has won 50% or more of his second-serve points in all three Australian Open matches so far.
