Serbia and Germany battle it out for a place in the semi-finals of the ATP Cup, where a very strong Russia team lies in wait. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and world No. 7 Alexander Zverev have played each other six times before, with the Serb coming out on top on four occasions - but the lanky German is very much a player on the rise. Follow our guide for how to watch a Djokovic vs Zverev live stream and catch all the 2021 ATP Cup tennis online from anywhere.
Djokovic and Zverev aren't exactly tennis' best-loved personalities, but there's no doubting their credentials on the court.
17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic needs no introduction, but facing him is a young man who has long been tipped for the top, even if deeply concerning off-court allegations have cast a shadow over him.
Zverev is expected to kick on this year, having reached his first Grand Slam semi-final and his first Grand Slam final in 2020, and a strong showing from the 23-year-old today would be a huge statement of intent.
Though Djokovic is undoubtedly the favourite, world No. 12 Denis Shapovalov managed to give him a run for his money on Monday, though the Serb ultimately proved too strong and ran out the 7-5, 7-5 winner.
Zverev's singles victory came against the same opponent, a nail-bitingly close 6-7, 6-3, 7-6 comeback win that would have tasted all the sweeter, with Shapovalov having beaten the German at last year's tournament.

Djokovic vs Zverev live stream: how to watch ATP Cup tennis online in the US
In the US, ATP Cup coverage comes courtesy of the Tennis Channel. As it's a cable-based service, in order to tune in you need to be a paying customer... or have a good over-the-top streaming service that costs a fraction of the price!
Of the many and varied options, the best for tennis fans is Sling TV. The upcoming Australian Open is being shown on both ESPN and the Tennis Channel and the Sling Orange package with a Sports Extra add-on features both for just $50 a month - but you can get the first month for only $40.
That's much less than the competition and WAY less than cable!
The session starts at 6pm ET/3pm PT on Thursday, but Djokovic vs Zverev will only begin after the conclusion of the first match, which is Krajinovic vs Struff.
New or existing subscribers to US streaming services can still access the platform of their choice from abroad, too - all you need is the help of a good VPN.

New users can sign up for a FREE 30-day Amazon Prime trial with full access to live sports coverage as well as free one-day delivery on purchases from Amazon's online store during that time.
