Alexander Zverev's form and confidence rises as aims big Australian Open result

I've said it before. there's not necessarily added pressure.

"Definitely much better than the ATP Cup".

During his on-court meeting, Zverev informed viewers on Margaret Court Arena, "I always make it hard for myself, but there was a lot of high level tennis".

Former WorldNo 7 David Goffin, the 2016 quarter-finalist, travelled past Jeremy Chardy 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 in one hr and also 48 mins and also now plays one more Frenchman in Pierre-Hugues Herbert, that got over Cameron Norrie of Great Britain 7-5, 3-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 in 3 hrs and also 42 mins.

The singles champions earn more than A$4 million and have to win seven consecutive matches to clinch the title. "Today was much better than my first match".

Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev booked their spots in the Australian Open third round, while Alexander Zverev and Stan Wawrinka also progressed. But his strength and big serve ultimately counted, with 19 aces. The most recent match between these two players was in 2019 at the Paris Masters where Alexander Zverev won in straight sets.

Zverev frequently struggles at Grand Slam events but his Australian Open campaign is off to a flawless start this week.

Olympic qualifying events canceled, moved over deadly Chinese coronavirus outbreak
Along with this, Asia / Oceania Boxing Tournament was also to be organized in this city from February 3 to 14. Coronavirus like SARS has killed 17 people in China so far and over 500 are said to be affected by it.


Alexander Zverev will donate $10,000 for every match he wins at the Australian Open to go toward the bushfire recovery effort.

With the threat of the Big Three looming ever-large over Melbourne Park, challengers Dominic Thiem and Roberto Bautista Agut have easily negotiated their first-round Australian Open assignments.

If he beats Chile's Christian Garin next, Raonic will likely play last year's breakout semi-finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas for a spot in the last 16.

"To read what's going on, to read the press, something like that, you had to buy a newspaper, go on the laptop and search for it", Zverev told reporters after his 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 7-5 win over Egor Gerasimov.

Despite the loss, Dart's performance was a marked improvement on her appearance at last year's Open, when she was beaten by Maria Sharapova in the opening round without winning a single game.

Pliskova was down 1-3 in the first set but never looked in danger of losing, immediately breaking her 72nd-ranked opponent in the next game to get back on serve.

Kyrgios got past Gilles Simon 6-2 6-4 4-6 7-5, while Khachanov needed four hours, 34 minutes to edge Mikael Ymer 6-2 2-6 6-4 3-6 7-6 (10-8).
