Alexander Zverev continues to win in Monte-Carlo

Alexander Zverev played another solid match to take down Roberto Bautista Agut at the Monte-Carlo Masters 6-4 6-4.

The German admitted feeling very uncomfortable on the court yesterday due to everything that happened the last time he stood on a clay court. He looked much more comfortable today and played a fairly solid match to beat a once-solid player who has not been playing that well this year in Bautista Agut.

Keeping the match in two sets is important for Zverev both to avoid fatigue and to gain confidence. Zverev didn't face a single break point in the first set and broke his opponent once which was enough 6-4. He had 8 aces in the first set along with 19 winners showing a very decent level right now.

The second set actually saw him drop his serve because he didn't serve as well and forced the issue a little bit. He had more double faults than aces in this one and wasn't as sharp from the baseline due to Bautista playing a bit better as well. Still, it was good enough to break the Spaniard twice in the second set and finish off the match 6-4.
