Taro Daniel vs Zverev (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from ATP Marrakech between Daniel (#75) and Mischa Zverev (#72)
I think we have an easy win for Daniel ahead of us in Marrakech, he isn't having a very good season with 7/11 even though he hasn't been getting demolished, he's lost a lot of narrow and long matches and now he should be able to produce better results on European clay, starting with Marrakech. It is of course not literally in Europe but the surface is a lot more like European and Middle Eastern clay. He is a much better clay courter than hardcourter as he doesn't have very hard groundstrokes but he moves around very well
Mischa Zverev finally took a win in Miami after eleven straight losses, he won against Kuhn who won the first set but had to retire in the third as he was having injury problems all match long. Mischa followed that up with a quick loss versus Basilashvili and now I think he will take another loss, he is simply not a good player anymore and his serve volley playing style hasn't been effective for at least a year, he gets passed all the time when he runs up to the net and his playing style won't be an advantage for him here with the court being a lot slower than what he needs for him to get the most out of his serve
Despite neither of them having a great season, Daniel is obviously in much better form and the surface is too much of an advantage for him to lose a set here
