World number five and German tennis star Alexander Zverev was left fuming with the chair umpire with the conditions during the ongoing ATP event in Munich. The 26-year-old suffered a rather surprising defeat in the quarterfinal of the BMW Open to Chile’s Cristian Garín with a score of 6-4, 6-4.
During the match, Zverev was furious when the chair umpire decided to let the match carry on despite the rain, something which is not a usual occurrence. “At what point are we gonna do something? At what point? Just tell me,” he said. “Are we not gonna do anything the entire match? Then I’m done. I’m just gonna tank the next two games and I’m done. This is ridiculous. It’s been literally raining.”
The result would be seen as another opportunity lost by Zverev to win silverware this season. It was his fifth defeat in the quarterfinal or beyond of an event in the 2024 season. Previously, he was knocked out of the quarterfinal at Indian Wells when he lost world number three Carlos Alcaraz with a score of 6-3, 6-1. That’s not it as he was also knocked out of the semifinal of three events — the Australian Open, Los Cabos Opena and the Miami Open.
