Alexander Zverev continued the quest for his first title of the season Friday, overcoming Cristian Garin 7-5, 6-2 to reach the semi-finals at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia for the third time.
In a commanding performance on Grand Stand Arena, the World No. 3 fired his flat groundstrokes through the court as he struck 24 winners and broke the Chilean four times to advance after one hour and 51 minutes. He said:
“It was a high-level match. At times it wasn’t pretty tennis, but I got the job done and that is the most important thing. I am through to the semi-finals and I am happy about that.”
Up next for Zverev is Stefanos Tsitsipas whom the German bested last week in Madrid. They already played twice on clay this year with Tsitsipas winning in Monte-Carlo and Zverev winning in Madrid. Tomorrow round 3.
