Two years ago, Zverev twisted his ankle in the French Open semifinal against Nadal, tore several ligaments and was out for seven months. Before the victory, Zverev revealed about the rematch in 2024: “I’ve been waiting for this match for two years. The memories of 2022 are there.” And he continued: “I didn’t want my last memory of a match against Nadal to be being wheeled off the court in a wheelchair.”

Zverev won an emotionally difficult match in the end. His recipe for victory: “I saw the match as a final. The whole tennis world was only talking about this one game.

Zverev beats Nadal 6:3, 7:6, 6:3. Next up in the second round is Belgian David Goffin!

Goffin after the match: “I have to be careful what I say now. But when you are insulted by the spectators for three and a half hours, you have to pay them back a little.”
