Zverev has been serving devastatingly well at the Olympics. In five matches in Tokyo, the 24-year-old German has won 79 percent of the points on his first serve. That's an improvement over his year-to-date average on the ATP Tour (76 percent).

In addition he has avoided double faults so far at the Olympics, making just three all tournament. Over the last year on the Tour, he is averaging 5.5 double faults per match, the third most among all players. "That is fabulous by his standards and suggests that he's been feeling pretty comfortable because the double faults tend to come when he's under stress," Calvert tells SportsLine.

Alexander Zverev stuns Novak Djokovic, ends his Golden Slam dreams in Olympic semifinals

  Alexander Zverev stuns Novak Djokovic, ends his Golden Slam dreams in Olympic semifinals Novak Djokovic's run for the gold came to an end Friday in an upset loss to German Alexander Zverev in the semifinals at the Tokyo Oympics. Things looked promising for Djokovic early, as he dominated Zverev in the first set 6-1. Djokovic started to lose ground in the second set, but was still ahead 3-2 after five games. Zverev took the next four games, winning the set 6-3 and forcing a third set. It was the first time during the Olympics Djokovic lost a set. Zverev looked dominant from there. He took the first 4 games of the final set. Djokovic showed signs of life late, winning the fifth game, but Zverev wouldn't allow Djokovic to come back.

Meanwhile Khachanov has seemingly regained the form that helped him win three tournament titles in 2018. His victory over Pablo Carreno Busta in the semifinals continued a string of recent wins that includes victories over eighth-seeded Diego Schwartzman and 14th-seeded Ugo Humbert. "Prior to this week we hadn't seen this sort of level from Khachanov since his 2018 Paris Masters run when he beat Djokovic in the final, so we've been waiting a long time for him to spark back to life," Calvert said.

In addition Khachanov dominated the last two matchups against Zverev. In 2019 the Russian won 6-3, 6-3 in Canada, and in 2018 he won 6-1, 6-1 in Paris. Both matches were played on outdoor hard courts.
