After Peter Kojovsky and Oscar Otte, Alexander Sverev reached the second round of the US Open. Hamburger profited from a task by his opponent Jack Sock in his third round game. The last three Germans in the last 16 of a major were in 1997.
Nice gesture: Alexander Sverev comforted Jack Zack (right).
Zach, who has always been a great talent, but played very contradictoryly and has been thrown back from injury in recent years, thanks to a wild card in New York. He repaid the trust he had placed in him with one of the best phrases of the match.
Zack started against Sverev, who had a positive balance (2: 1) like a firefighter. The 28-year-old American played as if he had come from another planet in the first set and then won a qualifying 6: 3 round — Sverre made only one mandatory mistake in the set, and still has no work to do. “I have never seen anything like this in my entire life,” Sverev said after the match in an interview with the winner.
Sock hurts himself
Winner Interview? Yes, because the German eventually won, but he benefited from his opponent’s injury, he had a problem with his thigh and the medical time ended as soon as he won the set. In the second set Zack was no longer running smoothly, with almost no chance – and Sverev easily leveled after the sets (6: 2).
The third round was a little open again, the socks worked painkillers, and although the foreigner Sverev mobilized the entire audience behind him as a local hero, he still could not seriously challenge.
Sverev had a cool head in Arthur Ashe’s cauldron and won the third set 6: 3. In the fourth, Zack finally threw the cloth when the score was 1: 2 against him. Sverev’s tour of New York continues after the victory – and lives the dream of his first Grand Slam title.
The sinner is now waiting
In the second round, he meets German No. 1 Janic Sinner, who has established himself against Gale Monfils in the five-sentence crime thriller. Sverev assured the audience that it would be an “interesting match” against the Italians.
As for German tennis, the competition is already very successful because, besides Sverev, Peter Kojovsky and Oscar Otte are in the last 16. The last such event was at Wimbledon in 1997 – with Boris Becker, Michael Stitch and Nicholas Kiefer. Angelique Gerber is in the 16th round for women.
