Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz: 2024 Wimbledon - Preview & Prediction

by Zachary Wimer

Alexander Zverev and Taylor Fritz will play for a quarter-final spot at the 2024 Wimbledon Championships after having a solid start in the tournament.

Zverev has been solid on grass this year, even though that's not really his calling card. It should be due to his serve and general skill set, but somehow, it never really worked out. His next opponent will be Fritz, who can utilize his skillset on grass really well.

It's a fascinating matchup between two players with powerful serves and solid baseline play. A place in the quarter-final at SW19 is at stake, so both will be eager to win the match.


The two have played quite a few matches on the ATP Tour so far, though Zverev did better, leading the H2H 5-3 so far. A couple of things are notable, and that's that the latest match this year was won by the German, but it was played on clay in Rome.

Fritz won at the United Cup last year, which was played on hard courts. The only match on grass happened years ago in 2018, and Zverev won that one, but it went to five sets, which is notable.

Fritz is a far better player now than he was back then, and while Zverev is better as well, he's not that better overall on grass. This is definitely a matchup that the American can win on grass, but he'll need to play really well.

27 Age 26
40-11 2024 W/L 34-12
434-188 Career W/L 265-179


Both will heavily depend on the serve, and whoever serves better is more likely to win. Fritz's style suits grass a bit better overall because Zverev's height tends to be a problem with the lower bounce.

Prediction: Taylor Fritz to win in four sets.
