bett1HULKS Indoors 2020 Cologne Final Preview - Zverev takes on Auger-Aliassime for the title
The bett1HULKS Indoors 2020 in Cologne ends today with a final between Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime. The final will be played at 14:00 in order to accommodate the packed schedule of the qualifiers for Cologne 2 due to start on Monday. Both players won three matches en route to the final and both were quite convincing in doing so.
Sasha Zverev lost only one set en route to the final and he could have easily avoided that. Playing in front on the home crowd is something he loves and it shows. His opponent had a similar path to the final also dropping only one set and it was today against Bautista Agut. Felix didn't come to Cologne in great form so this result is very important for him. Tomorrow will be tough and the odds don't favour him but he will like his chances.
The two players are familiar with each other having clashed four times so far in their careers. Two of these matches were exhibition matches so if we exclude them Zverev leads 2-0. In neither f those matches did he drop a set but that was also almost two years ago and since then Felix Auger-Aliassime improved dramatically. Still in Cologne Zverev is the favourite and anything but his victory would be quite a surprise. The match starts at 14:00 CET.
