Alexander Zverev

22 years old, currently 6th ranked German has finally shown what he’s really capable of after being inconsistent without reaching anything for quite some time. Zverev upset R. Federer earlier today in 3 sets of a great battle and managed to reach the semi-final here. The most important thing in today’s match was Zverev’s ability to bounce back after Roger made an incredible comeback late in the 2nd set. Zverev were up 40-0 and had 3 match points at that time, but Roger bounced back and won that set after such a huge deficit. Anyway, Zverev kept his cool and took the match over in 3rd set and hadn’t looked back. If the German shows the same level of mental strength tomorrow as well, he will definitely have great chances of reaching the grand final of the tournament.
