Among the quarter-finals of the ATP Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo, the match between Alexander Zverev and Janek Sener was the most exciting. The second seed’s encounter with the 20-year-old Italian certainly did not disappoint. In the end, after three hours and seven minutes of fierce fighting, the German won 5:7, 6:3, 7:6 (5).

The game was full of twists and turns. In the first set, Zverev was ahead by 4: 1, but lost 5: 7. In the second, the roles switched. It was Sener who took advantage of the breakout advantage but missed the lead. In the decisive match, Germany came out 5:3, but he turned around and had to score a dramatic tiebreaker victory.

– This win means a lot to me. I’ve been losing such close matches this year, so I’m very happy to win this match,” said the 24-year-old from Hamburg, quoted at atptour.com, who delivered five aces, five breaks and 35 goals on Friday.

The tennis player from Athens finished with four aces, seven breaks and 31 aces. – In the second group I was close. This was the moment I should have ended this duel. Then I felt that what I was doing in court didn’t work. But I tried to stay in the match as long as possible, although in the third set I wasn’t expecting much good, he commented.
