A lot will be at stake for Team World as the Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime goes head-to-head with Alexander 'Sascha' Zverev today.

Build-up to Sunday's crunch game: 

It was another dismal day at the Laver Cup for John McEnroe's Team World as they suffered a whitewash on Saturday, losing all four of their games to Björn Borg's Team Europe.

Team Europe require one more win on Sunday to clinch the 2021 Laver Cup. As we know by now, that the stakes are raised each passing day in the Laver Cup tournament, the winners of today's matches would be securing 3 points for their respective teams.

Looking at the experience of both next-gen players, Zverev clearly holds the edge in terms of experience at the Laver Cup compared to his Sunday's opponent, 21-year-old, Aliassime who is making his debut in the tournament this year.

Zverev vs Aliassime: Prediction

The weight of Team World will be on the young shoulders of Felix Aliassime as they try to keep their hopes alive in the Laver Cup on Sunday. On the other hand, Zverev and co. will be quite confident of getting the job done for Bjorn Borg.

Felix Auger-Aliassime has displayed some high quality tennis this year with a range of shots in his armory. Although, Aliassime lost his first and only game of the tournament so far to Italy's Matteo Berrettini, the Canadian would be go into this game with much confidence.

Alexander Zverev has the opportunity to repeat his heroics in 2019 when he helped Team Europe win the Laver Cup with a win over Milos Raonic. 

We feel Zverev has a strong presence on the hard courts, and his better head to head record against Aliassime would give him the perfect opportunity to avenge the Wimbledon round of 16 defeat to his Sunday's opponent.  

Prediction: Alexander Zverev to win the match in three sets.
