Alexander Zverev advanced to the second round of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament with a 6-4, 6-3 win over David Ferrer on Monday.
The 20-year-old Zverev needed 1 hour, 24 minutes to dispatch the veteran Spaniard.
While Zverev struggled with his serve, he still managed to save nine of 11 break point opportunities. He also converted on five of six break-point opportunities (2/11 for Ferrer). Both committed an uncharacteristic number of unforced errors (Zverev, 26; Ferrer, 31).
With the win, Zverev moves to 1-2 lifetime in his FedEx ATP Head2Head series against Ferrer. He'll play the winner between Portugal's Joao Sousa and Italian Andreas Seppi in the second round. . read full article
