Charlottesville CH R1: Devvarman def Zverev 4-6 7-5 6-4

Somdev was a break down in the second set and was 1-*4 down in the third set. He won with his competitiveness and awesome returning and passing shots when Zverev was serving and volleying. Got to every ball, hit a few great lobs, whenever there were rallies he was the more aggressive player, and Somdev wore Zverev down.

His game isn't all the way back but his fight has never left. Former UVA grad playing a de-facto home event, so you know the motivation is high to do damage here. Great win for him.

Zverev sounds like a relative of that mug wta player who got double bageled in half an hour in a slam final - if so it's not a surprise he chokes like one

Charlottesville CH R1: Dev Varman def Zverev 4-6 7-5 6-4

great match. somdev played really well on return and gradually got into zverevs service as the match went on.

in the 3rd set, somdev missed 5 BP's in the 2nd game and then gifted a BP called out to zverev. he then got broken twice and went *4-1 down.

great comeback, winning 5 games in a row.

I am too high level for that. I outleveled that place back in early 2005.

Another day in the office for Zverev. Wasting a lead left and right is definitely something he likes.

Nice Somdev It's a good thing fights, because it's hard to win matches being an erratic pusher like he is.

Zverev certainly helped with his clown approaches to the net.
