It was extremely difficult to predict such a one-sided encounter of last year’s finalists. Medvedev  did his homework and was reading Zverev’s  serves like an open book. It’s really amazing that he broke the German four times within 80 minutes despite Zverev’s 77% of first serves in. Zverev was very frustrated and devastated his racquet once he lost his serve at 1-all in the 2nd set. He had won their first four matches, now they’re tied at 5:5 and quite strange that only two tie-breaks were required in 23 sets they have played against each other. “We had a tough match,” Medvedev said. “Sometimes the score doesn’t show exactly what happened on the court. I am happy to have this score, but he had 2:1, 40/15 in the first set on my serve. I think this first break of serve when you play Sascha is really important because he gains confidence. I am really happy I managed to raise my level throughout the match and I didn’t make too many unforced errors.”
