Olympic tennis champion Alexander Zverev was eliminated in the second round of the ATP Masters in Toronto.
And No. 13 Hamburg lost to Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina after a poor performance especially in the first round 1: 6, 2: 6. Unlike Montreal, where Zverev triumphed in 2017, Toronto remains a bad place for the 26-year-old. The tournament rotates annually between the two cities.
Zverev did not find the match at all against Davidovich Fokina. A completely unsuccessful overhead shot in the first half was followed by two double faults in a row – the first break for the Spaniard ended with zero.
Although Hamburger managed to win the first game on its own serve, it stayed that way. The first group disappeared after only 24 minutes.
In the second set, too, Zverev did not want to pass despite a slight improvement in his error rate. World record 16. It was broken twice again by the Spaniard, who had not been able to win a single set in the previous three duels with Zverev, and also gave up the second round in just 38 minutes.
Three-seeded Norwegian Casper Ruud awaits Davidovich Fokina in the round of 16.
