Tennis: Zverev lost the second group – Djokovic prematurely in the semifinals



Alexander Zverev lost his second group of finals in the finals in London, going to knockout round, but still in his hand.

Alexander Zverev lost his second group of finals in the finals in London, going to knockout round, but still in his hand. 21-year-old defeated world champion Novak Djokovic (Serbia) after 1:16 hours 4: 6, 1: 6. With a double victory on Friday (15.00 CET / Ski) against John Isner (USA) Zverev would definitely qualify for the semifinals.

Born in Hamburg, he won against Marina Cilic (Croatia) in sets on Monday. Cilic overtook Isner 6: 7 (2: 7), 6: 3, 6: 4 in the evening. So, Djokovic (31) as the first player of the tournament certainly has a place in the semifinals. If he wins against Cilic, Zverev can afford a serious defeat at the last match.

For Zverev this was the second defeat in the third match with the 14th Grand Slam champion. In May 2017, he won his first Masters title in Rome in the final against Djokovic, he was recently in the semifinals of Shanghai. As the last German to date, Rainer Schuttler scored the semifinals in Houston in 2003 in the eight best season.
