Zverev wins 15th consecutive win against Sinner

Alexander Zverev successfully defeated Italian Janick Sinner in three sets (6-4,6-4 and 7-6 (7)) and advances to the US Open quarterfinals, where you will see the faces with the South African Lloyd Harris, who achieved the greatest success of his career in Grand Slams by submitting with a comeback and six meritorious breaks to the American gunner Reilly Opelka (6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-1 and 6-3).

The German tennis player, who has 15 wins in a row this summer (six at the Tokyo Games, five at the 1,000 Masters in Cincinnati and four in New York) was very firm throughout the game and only at the end of the third set was he intimidated by Sinner. Zverev started the first set asserting his great service and took advantage of the doubts of a Sinner who felt more comfortable from the back of the court than at the net to break his serve and win the first set.

The second set started with the same premise as the first, with a well planted Sinner, but with a very comfortable Zverev at service. With a tie at four games, the German broke the Italian’s serve and closed the set with the same score as the previous one.

Far from falling apart Sinner went for all in the third set, and despite the fact that Zverev broke his serve again at the first change, he knew how to hold on and take advantage of his opportunity to break him and get back into the game. From there, The New York crowd took him to the tie break, in which he enjoyed three set balls, but the German finally won taking advantage of his first match point.
