The best Zverev gives a severe correction to Ramos

From the outset, the commitment against Alexander Zverev was very difficult for Albert Ramos, but, in addition, it became an ordeal, because the 24-year-old German, in his best version ever, he passed over Spanish: 6-1, 6-0 and 6-3 in 74 minutes. So exaggerated was the dominance of the 2020 finalist, especially with his service, that the Spaniard can only win nine points to the rest. Nothing worked for the former world number 17, not even his precise and powerful forehand, because Zverev is another tennis player in 2021 and seriously threatens, from what you see, Djokovic’s options in the tournament. Champion in Cincinnati and before Olympic gold in Tokyo, where he beat the Serbian in the semi-finals with a tremendous comeback, he could meet him again in the same round with nothing to lose.

To Ramos, who seven years ago beat his rival this Thursday and well (6-1 and 6-0) in the Barranquilla ChallengerHe had no choice but to lower his head and endure the downpour, metaphorically as strong as the one that fell the night before in New York. Perhaps he was able to try to find solutions, although Sascha did not give him options because he is now a very stable player in the exchanges (20 unforced errors).

It would seem that his months with David Ferrer penetrated him deeply, because he has become not only a lethal player on the attack, but also in a fighter when he has to defend and resist the offenses of his rivals. And the service … Only 11 aces, but 93% of points won with first and only three double faults, a section that previously penalized him and in which he has improved a lot. In the third round, you will meet a good server, Bublik or Sock.
