Tennis: Alexander Zverev with career milestone in Vienna

by archysport

Olympic tennis champion Alexander Zverev survived the round of 16 of the ATP tournament in Vienna with some difficulty.

The 24-year-old moved into the round of eight in the 1.8 million euro competition in the town hall with a 6: 2, 3: 6, 6: 2 against Australian Alex De Minaur. The Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, number six on the seed list, is waiting there.

For Zverev it was the 300th victory on the ATP tour. “I am happy to have achieved this performance so early in my career, but hopefully there will be a lot more to come. The first win in Hamburg against Robin Haase will definitely stay in my memory, simply because it was the first. Then for sure also my first success against Roger Federer, the first against a Top10 player – and in Halle in Germany too, “he said.

Against De Minaur, Zverev, in Vienna behind French Open finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas (Greece) in second position, had to do 1:42 hours of hard work until his sixth victory in the fifth duel was certain. Only at the ATP Cup 2020 did he lose to number 32 in the world rankings in three sets on hard court.

In the first round, Zverev had eliminated the Serb Filip Krajinovic. He has a 3-1 record against Auger-Aliassime.
