He had dominant performances in both previous matches. In the opening round, Zverev defeated Lloyd Harris 7-6, 7-6, 6-1 and in the second one he was better than Alex Molcan 6-4, 6-2, 6-1. Zverev’s best result this season was the semifinal in Dubai where he lost to Andrey Rublev in straight sets.
Tiafoe is ranked at no. 12 at the moment, one spot lower than his career high.

In the previous two rounds, Tiafoe defeated Filip Krajinovic 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 and in the last match, he outlasted Aslan Karatsev 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-2. Tiafoe is having a pretty good season on clay as he already won the tournament in Houston.
- Zverev leads 6-1 in head to head matches
- The last one was in Vienna in 2021 when Zverev won 7-5, 6-4
- Neither of those matches was played on clay
Zverev is not among the top favorites at the Roland Garros but if he really finds his best game, then he can beat anybody. Zverev is a major favorite in this match mostly because he has been dominant in the previous matches against Tiafoe. Still, the American has made huge improvement in the past year and is almost into the top 10 on the ATP rankings. This will be a tough battle and at the end Zverev will win the match on over 33.5 games.
Zverev to win and total over 38.5
