US Open: Zverev offers first half

Germany’s Alexander Zverev qualified for the first time in his career for the semi-finals of the US Open on Tuesday despite a catastrophic start.

Alexander Zverev invited himself to the last four of the US Open for the first time in his career on Tuesday. The German, 7th in the world, had a disastrous start to the match against Borna Coric (32nd) before gradually gaining the upper hand to win (1-6, 7-6, 7-6, 6-3) . “I had to be a little more aggressive after my start, because what I was doing was not at the level of a Grand Slam quarter-final,” said the 23-year-old German.

Coric was at the end of his rope

He also finished stronger physically, reaping according to him “the fruits of a lot of physical work done in recent months during confinement”. It must be said that opposite, Coric had left strength throughout his career with in particular a match in five sets against Stefanos Tsitsipas (6th) in the third round, during which he was led 2 sets to 1, 5-1 in the 4th set and saved six match points before finally coming out on top in the confrontation.

Zverev was instrumental in putting Coric at the head of the game by multiplying unforced errors and double serving faults, all in a kind of guilty apathy. However, while he had conceded a new break and was led 4-2 in the second set, the German recovered to force the decision in the tie-break, thanks to a service finally found. The same scenario emerged in the third round.

He then took advantage of the Croatian’s downturn to clinch his first qualification for the semi-finals at the US Open. He, the youngest player of the new generation, who has never really confirmed in a Grand Slam, joins the last four of a Major for the second time, after the Australian Open at the start of the year. In Melbourne, he stumbled over Dominic Thiem.
