Shanghai R1: Gonzo def. Zverev 7-5 6-7(0) 2-2 Ret



He fell on the ground, hurt his wrist it seemed. His serving was WTA like in speed and placement after the medical timeout but he was still volleying beautifully. But clearly it was still hurting and at 2-2* (Ad to Zverev) Gonzo hit a second lob and that was end of match. Sad to see that but I loved how he S&Vd every point.

S&V is not dead.

Lucky Gonzo. With this kind of form, he doesn't deserve WTF.

I stopped watching after the second set, what was the problem?

Sounds bad. I thought it wouldn't be that bad, as some posters like Machiavelli were laughing about the retirement.

I had a bet on Gonzo amigo...

Of course Zverev plays his best match in a long time when I am against him, nice S&V, he should do this way more often, serve needs improvement, and his fitness too, you fanboy... The njury is tough luck, Gonzo was ready to be taken out...

Zverev does S&V quite a lot.

In Rome this year against Federer on clay he was S&Ving on nearly every point in the first set.

Gonzo is very limited player

Zverev was serving 99% of his weak serves on his backhand never even once changed it and Gonzo was unable to read it

He played pretty well up until second-set tiebreak actually. Lots of awesome forehand cross-court passes on the run. Awesome point on set-point as well.

S&V is so overrated. It's fine on some points but not every point, where's the interest in that? I'm glad I didn't grow up in the era where most players did it by default.
