I am going to completely ignore the most difficult draw AZ has gotten in his entire career. If he can't win on HIS F***ING COURT, that'd be the perfect time to panic and retire for his fans. :p

Well he does sound pretty optimistic about it. And if there's a place to come back to form it's gotta be his backyard.

Zverev Before Going For Munich Three-Peat: 'My Game Is Pretty Much Back'
“I feel like my game is pretty much back on the practice courts in the way I hit the ball, but I just have to show it in the matches. I think I’ll have a few very tough matches and if I win them, I think I’m in good shape and good form. We’ll see how it goes.
That kind of mature response doesn't really jive with his on-court attitude when he's having a tough match. Sounds more like PR, but I guess, we will see.

Martin Klizan can win the title, Ernest Gulbis no way, I'm afraid you're overrating him.
I'm afraid you just don't like him.

Really good field, I like Zverev and Cecchinato in the top half. In the bottom half I'd favour Pella and Edmund to make it through the draw. Out of them 4 I think I'll go for Edmund. Would be a minor surprise, but not really massively unexpected.

Stacked with several good clay courters in every section.

Don't like him at all indeed. Feelings aside, he is 5-11 this year, and on a 7 losses streak (even though losing to Laslo Djere 6-7 in the third was not that bad).
well he's the epitome of streaky - remember him winning LA in 2011 after a similar situation (just found it - 7-14 for the year and on a 5 match losing streak heading in, hadn't won a match since before the French Open). Klizan's the same sort of yo-yo like player that can just go on runs out of nowhere - two 500 tournament wins and going 1-13 in all other tour level matches for a period in 2016-17 - absolutely insane in other words.

Yeah The good thing also, is that a well distributed in the draw. Should be a nice little tournament to attend from start to finish.

What is so difficult about Zverev's draw?
Londero -> Garin/Schwartzman -> Cecchinato -> Pella is as difficult as #3 can only get in a meaningless 250. All are inform clay specialists. Diego is the most inconsistent right now, but if he finds his groove, he is probably the most dangerous. Now if you compare this to Zverev's usual draws...
