Zverev leads 3-2 in points but is constantly being made to work hard throughout the new game. There have been no breakpoints throughout the first set.
Zverev scored the game’s points with a lethal combination of long and wide serve followed by a powerful two-handed backhand deep into the opposite corner.
Altmaier could not reply, Zverev leading 5-4. Altmaier impressively renders the game a deuce.
He was able to destroy the ace’s serve in the middle to attempt a trick drop shot.
