<div><h2>David Ferrer (WC) vs. Alexander Zverev (3)</h2><p><strong>Wednesday, May 8, Madrid</strong></p><p>David Ferrer live to fight another day at the Mutua Madrid Open. The former world No.3, who will end his professional career after this week’s tournament in the Spanish capital, survived a three-set battle against fellow Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round on Tuesday. Ferrer broke serve four times and ended the match with 30 winners to 45 unforced errors in a great battle between the two players. However, the 37-year-old struggled physically in the third set and received a medical timeout for pain in his left hip.</p><p>Ferrer will next take on third seed Alexander Zverev for a place in the third round of the Mutua Madrid Open. Zverev has struggled for form in recent times and only won 42.86% of the matches since the start of the clay-court season. Nevertheless, returning to Madrid brings back many happy memories to Zverev. The 22-year-old became the first German to win the title last year at the Mutua Madrid Open after an incredible run. Besides not dropping a single set en route to his third ATP Masters 1000 title, Zverev only faced one break point in 48 service games.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the eighth time in their careers. Zverev leads 4-3 in their head-to-head but the Spaniard won their most recent encounter at the Miami Open in March. However, Ferrer may not be at 100% for this contest and will have to play in consecutive days after a very long battle against Bautista Agut. On the other hand, Zverev loves the fast conditions in <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/tennis/how-can-weather-conditions-influence-your-tennis-tips/89723/" target="_blank" title="How Can Weather Conditions Influence Your Tennis Tips?">Madrid’s altitude</a> and adding is moneyline at 9/25 (1.36) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> to an accumulator is an interesting approach.
