ATP Miami Day 6 Predictions Including Alexander Zverev vs Christopher Eubanks

ATP Hamburg finalist Alexander Zverev in action.

The latter half of the Sunshine Double enters Day 6 with some terrific Round of 32 matches on the slate, including Alexander Zverev vs. American Christopher Eubanks. As always, we at LWOT have the preview and prediction for all matches on the ATP Miami docket. But who do you think will advance?

ATP Miami Day 6 Predictions

Hubert Hurkacz vs Sebastian Korda

Head to Head: Hurkacz 3-1

Both Hurkacz and Korda are coming off tight three-set matches in the previous round. Hurkacz battled past Schevchenko, while Korda had to come back from a set and a break-down against Roberto Bautista Agut. That result should give him confidence against the big-serving Pole. Hurkacz will rely on his serve as he usually does, but if Korda can work for the home crowd and stay in sets one and two, he could force a minor upset. Korda will have to return well and handle his service games, moving Hurkacz around as best he can from the back of the court to take this one.

Prediction: Hurkacz in 3

Alex de Minaur vs Jan-Lennard Struff

Head to Head: 2-2

This is the toughest pick of this group of matches as the two men square off with their differing styles and approaches to the game. Their head-to-head record doesn’t give much away at 2-2, and with Jan-Lennard Struff winning their last two matches, this does not tell the whole story either, considering de Minaur’s stellar start to the season, including an 18-5 record and march into the world’s top 10. Struff, on the other hand, is just 5-6 this year. Both men had straightforward wins in the last round against Kwon and Altmaier, respectively, so they should be fresh coming in.

Fabian Maroszan vs Alexei Popyrin

Head to Head: first meeting

This is a tough one to call, with Alexei Popyrin and Fabian Marozsan never having played each other; they are the same age and are reasonably close in the rankings, with Popyrin at 45 and Maroszan at 57. Both men also carry a lot of confidence into this match based on their previous round wins at ATP Miami. Maroszan incredibly dismantled Holger Rune 6-1, 6-1, smashing 23 winners in the process, and Poyrin beating the dangerous 26th seed Jiri Lehechka 6-4, 6-4. Maybe Maroszan will shade this one, feeding off the confidence of his fine Rune win.

Prediction: Maroszan in 3

Alexander Zverev vs Christopher Eubanks

Head to Head: Zverev 1-0

Zverev enters this round of 32 match in decent form after defeating former ATP top 10 player Félix Auger-Aliassime 6-2, 6-4 in the previous round. Eubanks, however, struggled a little more to see off an out-of-form Dan Evans 7-6, 3-6, 7-6. Eubanks is the home player, though, and despite struggling at the start of the 2024 season, he could perhaps do enough to get to a tie-break or two again. He will want to get the American crowd involved early and often. Safe betting is with the German, however, as he comfortably defeated Eubanks 6-2 6-3 in their only previous meeting.
