Hamburg SF - Ferrer def. Zverev 6-0 6-1

Expected.

There was hardly any way anything different than this to happen.

I hoped Alex would get 4-5 games, just for not reading the exact inverse of what has been going this week....but this was inevitable at this point.

Well, I'm glad he at least got a game. Let's forget this match and applaud him for his amazing run :worship:

Also, in before emotion announces he became an instant Zverev fan as soon as he started to throw his racquet around :p

I think Alex had 3 winners in this match - all aces(?)

Zverev could have made the score respectable if he had a 1st serve. That's it.

Ouch. Horrible match for Zverev though, really awful tennis on show but Ferrer is probably the worst match up imaginable.

Well. Ferrer exposed Zverev for what he is, a 17 years old kid.

Didn't see previous Zverev matches but after seeing this one the lack of depth of the field strikes me.

he couldn't hit through Ferrer from 2m behind the baseline, especially being constantly stretched and on the back foot.

But this is experience for him, now he will understand it won't happen with waiting only.

He has weapons, he just need to stabilize and apply them.

The kid got schooled. The game he got was because of Ferrer going away, giving away easy balls. The kid just doesn't have a weapon to hurt Ferrer. He is young, so he can improve a lot. Ferrer could have won it quicker, if he didn't suddenly going around to hit a forehand all the time all of a sudden in the last 3-4 games.

Not seen the match much (only some stats) but it seems Zverev just had his current ceiling right now, struggling with his 1st Serve. That being said, really good run here (and that is an understatement) for the 17-year old and he looks like a Top 50-100 player right now so it would be a matter of time to break into that ranking. Good for Ferrer though to not let his guard down in the 2nd Set although I really would've wished Alex could've gotten at least 4 games in the 2nd Set.

Worst matchup for guy being taller than 1,90 is Ferrer on clay.
No Nadal, no Djokovic, Federer, but Ferrer on clay.
Even prime Murray really struggle against Ferrer on clay.

pretty sure many made some solid bucks on this 1.20.

It was the gift of the season.
