Alexander Zverev played some great tennis at the 2023 US Open. Somewhat under the radar, the former world No. 2 made it all the way to the quarterfinals. After an an impressive third-round round win over Grigor Dimitrov, Zverev survived an absolute marathon against Jannik Sinner, earning a 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 victory over the talented 22-year-old.
After that late-night triumph, Zverev used his post-match interview to announce that he is officially back. Fatigued, he ultimately fell in straight sets to Carlos Alcaraz in his very next match, but he is nonetheless looking like one of the best players in the world again.
Zverev now heads to Chengdu, China as the favorite to this week’s 250-level event, and BetMGM currently has him listed at +185 odds to get the job done. And while those odds might not seem all that favorable, I do think Zverev will come away with his second title of the year.
