To Berrettini task: Zverev wins to start
The world ranking third parties from Hamburg led on Sunday evening in Turin with 7: 6 (9: 7), 1: 0 against the crowd pleaser, when his counterparty had to leave the place due to injury. Zeal managed the first step on the target path to the semifinals of the ATP finals. I feel bad right now, Zeal said. I do not know what to say, because that s the worst feeling what a player can have. I m so sorry for Matteo.
Unimpressed by Frenetic Italian fans, the world ranking third part of Hamburg had previously secured the very competitive first sentence. At the beginning of the second pass, REGRETTING dropped the racket on the ground in the second game, treated himself and tried to make antennas shortly, but had to acknowledge that he could not continue playing.
In his second match of this ATP finals on Tuesday, Zeal now comes to a fast reunion with the Russian defending champion Daniel Mercedes for Zeal. The US Open winner started with a 6: 7 (5: 7), 6: 3, 6: 4 against the Polish tournament debutant Hubert Surface.

VERY must be at least second in his four-group group to reach the semi-finals next Saturday. The anniversary tournament of the eight best tennis courts of the season had opted for Hamburg three years ago and this time counts after successful months to the co-favorites — as well as Mercedes. Against the World Ranking Second, VERY was only on Saturday a week ago at the Masters-1000 tournament in Paris, also because he felt a vacuumed from the strap aces of the past few months.
Regretting had been enthusiastically cheered by the audience in the hall completely filled due to the Corona crisis. But Zeal could not be impressed by the atmosphere. I m a fan of it, if it is loud in the stadium. I also like it when people are against me, he had said in front of the match.
The number three of the world was the advantage in the longer ball changes, struck himself strongly and was closer to a break than the Italian from the beginning. The hamburger made his possibilities unused to take the service to his opponent. So it remained tight and suddenly Batting had at 5: 6 from Zeal s view of his first two break opportunities that were synonymous with sentence balls. VERY saved himself in the Tiebreak and decided the first pass after 79 minutes for himself before the match took a dramatic and unexpected end.
For the first time in Turin
For the first time, the Tennis Elite is now measuring in the multi-purpose hall Paley Auditor, until 2025, the event was awarded to Turin after twelve years before. It makes giant fun in the mega atmosphere, said double player Kevin Gleiwitz, though he had caught a failed start. In the expected difficult starting match against the Wimbledon and Olympic champion Nikola Celtic and Mate Panic from Croatia, he lost 4: 6, 4: 6 with the Romanian Hora Team. Of course you are a bit disappointed about the match, the Coburger recognized: Of course it is annoying that we get two breaks. We would have to make it close.
