Zverev had set pt in first set tb and set pts. in second set tb. He got frustrated with the wet conditions in the second tb. and kind of lost it mentally. Very tight match and he'll only improve.

The tiebreak scores were 9-7 and 11-9.
I didn't get to watch the match but quickly looking through the stats, it looks like it was a commendable performance by Alex despite losing. :cool: #AZrising :p

Zverev behaved like a real brat towards the end which was disappointing to see. He slipped a few times but nothing serious and I have seen play continue in far worse conditions. He was even mouthing off to the umpire when he left the court. He's 17 so you have to make allowances but he still has some growing up to do. Rosol on the other hand, kept his head down and focused on closing out the match.

I thought Zverev played well but his best tactic seemed to be getting the ball back in court and waiting fro the inevitable Rosol error.

Zverev hit some good winners too. He hit one bh down the line winner from outside the tram lines. He is no pusher. Compared to Rosol he is though.:p

It's funny how a Tomic fan moans about players being brats and claims players have growing up to do.... LOL. You are a huge contender for ACC this year. I hope you are #1 Seed and you win the whole thing.

Nothing wrong with Zverev's behaviour. Anyway he's just turned 17, obviously not going to start smashing top 100 players week in week out. Good effort against a living legend.

On to Hamburg :sport:

Lukas :D two TBs, not a problem. Close one for Alex, but these kind of matches help a lot. Will be a good experience for him, and we'll see him again at this level very soon (then again the germans seem to be giving him every WC possible, so...)

Zverev is a real brat out on court (and I generally don't say that about a lot of players) though, he has plenty of maturing to do
