Zverev played a very strong early match today taking down Dominic Thiem in two extended tiebreak to book a place in the quarter-final. The German had his serve working really well and looked comfortable on the court as he battled past Thiem.
Things looked vastly different in this one because Medvedev came out to play early and he snatched a 3-0 lead. He added some more games taking the first set with a bagel 6-0 as Zverev was unable to match his shot-making.

The second set was quite a bit more competitive as Zverev actually took an early lead which he was unable to lead as Medvedev mounted a comeback late in the set to take it 6-4. A good win for Medvedev who advances to the semi-final.
A solid return for Zverev as well.
