Fans Comment on Alexander Zverev

When Alexander Zverev, the No. 12 seed, unexpectedly approached chair umpire James Keothavong and gestured toward the fan who was seated in a section behind the umpire, they were serving at 2-2 in the fourth set of their match against the No. 6 Jannik Sinner.

Zverev stated to Keothavong, “He just said the most famous Hitler phrase there is in this world.” “That’s not right,”

Turning around, Keothavong requested the fan to identify himself before requesting that spectators show both players respect. The fan was recognized by those sat close to him during the changeover just after Zverev held serve, and security removed him.

Alexander Zverev was the target of a derogatory comment, according to USTA spokesperson Chris Widmaier.

After the game, Alexander Zverev claimed that while he has received snide remarks from supporters in the past, none of them involved Hitler.

He began chanting the Hitler hymn from back in the day, Alexander Zverev said. There was a little too much ‘Deutschland über alles’.

“However, I think he had been taking part in the game for a while. It’s okay with me. I adore loud crowds of admirers. I adore seeing fans in tears. He was seated in one of the front rows, so I imagine many people heard it. However, I don’t think that was a fantastic thing to do because I’m German and not very proud of that history. Therefore, I consider it poor on my part if I just don’t respond.

Match Summery

After Sinner suffered from severe cramps in the third set, Alexander Zverev went on to lose that set as he started to struggle in the hot weather. The 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 match, which lasted 4 hours, 41 minutes, was finally won by Alexander Zverev by winning the fifth set. In the quarterfinals, he will next face Carlos Alcaraz, the reigning US Open champion.

Moving over the fan’s insult, according to Alexander Zverev, wasn’t difficult.

To be honest, Alexander Zverev acknowledged that it was to his loss that he was unable to see the match’s final two sets.

Medevdev Defeat

Alex de Minaur’s US Open run has come to an end thanks to a memorable fourth-round victory by Russian ironman Daniil Medevdev in New York.

Before the third-seeded 2021 Open winner surged to a 2-6 6-4 6-1 6-2 victory, De Minaur played some outstanding attacking tennis early on to boost expectations of an upset victory.

The world No. 13 seed from Australia was trying to get to the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows for a second time, but she was unable to keep up with Medvedev after losing a close second set.

Australia’s involvement in the singles is over thanks to De Minaur’s withdrawal, and the 24-year-old will likely move up the rankings to a career-high No.12 next Monday.

In the end, de Minaur claimed, “What happened out there had nothing to do with tennis.”

It has a little to do with physique alone. Without any downtime or relaxation, I played in a number of matches during the whole summer, and it now seemed to be catching up with me.

Medevdev stateted on his fitness

This may be the first time in my career that my physical fitness has let me down. It doesn’t occur naturally. On every day of the year, I support myself.

“However, with all of the games I played, my schedule, and everything else, I was able to reach this position, where little margins and percentages are actually rather significant given the level of competition.

Medvedev, who finished second in 2019 before preventing Novak Djokovic from completing a calendar-year grand slam sweep two years ago, moves on to face eighth seed Andrey Rublev in an all-Russian quarterfinal.

That didn’t seem likely against de Minaur at first; his aggressive play frightened the former world No. 1 and made a rematch of his victory against Medvedev in Toronto last month seem like a certain conclusion.

Match analysis

De Minaur sped through the opening set in 32 minutes by playing aggressive tennis, winning nine of nine points while storming the net and breaking Medvedev in the fifth and seventh games.

Midway through the second set, though, a magnificent tweener from Medvedev during a 34-shot winning run spurred the Russian into action.

De Minaur had to withstand five break points in order to hold for 2-2, but she was unable to recover after falling down 15-40 while serving at 4-5, when Medvedev tied the match at one set apiece.

In the fourth set, the Russian picked up the pace, dominating de Minaur from behind with two more breaks to go up two sets to one.

De Minaur lost service twice again in the fourth set as Medvedev jumped out to a 5-1 lead before serving out the match after two hours and forty minutes.

Then, all of a sudden, I was forced to scramble and try out new strategies, but you can’t do that while facing a player of Daniil’s caliber.

De Minaur is inching closer to a top-10 ranking for the first time despite his departure, and he still has a chance to earn a spot in the season-ending ATP finals in Turin.

“I’ve had some great results, and I probably could have been higher (in the rankings),” the man added.

There is still plenty to do, including Davis Cup and Asia. The first week of Asia will be off for me.

“I need to take a break, and I intend to finish the year strong.

The best way to end the year would be in the top 10, Turin.
