This year's French Open ended the fourth round of the second men's singles. U.S. Open runner-up Zverev Jr. lost to the 19-year-old Italian star Sinnar in a fierce battle for three hours. The scores were 3-6, 3-6, 6-4, 3-6 in the four sets. Sinnar entered the quarterfinals in the French Open for the first time and will face the king of clay court and 12-time champion Nadal in the quarter-finals.
Last year, Sinnar, who was not ranked enough to play in the French Open qualifiers, has risen fiercely and has become the youngest clay-court Grand Slam top 16 since Djokovic in 2006. He exploded the 11th seed in the first round.
Little Zvi made a double fault on the first serve point, which also indicates that his serve state is mediocre. The two sides fought to the 4th inning of the first set, and Zwilliam lost 4 points and Sinnar took the lead to break the deadlock. Little Zvi failed to break, Sinnar pulled the score to 4-1. Then the two sides kept the game all the way, small Zvi ruined two counter-breaking opportunities in the 9th game of the opponent's victory, and Sinnar took 44 minutes to grab the first set.
In the second game, Zvi was still unable to capture the opponent's defense. Sinnar opened the score with two breaks in the 3rd and 9th innings. In the third set, Zvi finally broke through Shinnar's serve for the first time, and the latter tied the score in the 6th game, after which the score rose to 4-4 alternately. In the crucial 9th inning, Sinnar sent 2 double faults in succession, and Zvi took advantage of the situation to establish a 5-4 advantage. The German star overcame the unfavorable situation of double faults and withstood the pressure to defend the subsequent serve win.
Zverev was at a disadvantage when he entered the 4th set, and Sinnar won 3 games in a row. Little Zvi was unable to narrow the points difference in the late game, and Shinnal 6-3 made another set.
After the game technical statistics, Sinnar had a winning score of 39 to 20 and was far ahead of Zvi, who also sent 47 active turnovers. On the key points, Zvi's performance was not satisfactory.
