    Rising 19-year-old Italian star Jannik Sinner surprised fit Alexander Zverev with a brilliant demonstration of French Open 2020 filming The youngster presented US Open 2020 finalist Zverev his second defeat in 11 matches with a 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 victory in the fourth round on Parisian clay

    Zverev is the second top 15 player Sinner beat this week He had beaten David Goffin in the first round earlier Zverev struggled with health issues midway through the first set However, he seemed to get better as he went and as the match progressed

    He was outclassed by Sinner’s heavy groundstrokes, especially on the forehand ATP Next Gen Finals winner now faces Rafael Nadal, who beat Sebastian Korda in easy three sets Zverev’s third set was the first set Sinner dropped all week

    Interestingly, Sinner became the first man since Nadal himself to reach the Roland Garros quarter-final in his tournament debut. He is also the youngest men’s Grand Slam quarter-finalist since Novak Djokovic in the same event in 2006

    Sinner started well on the serve and took a 2-1 lead in no time He then beat the German player to 0 in Game 4 World number seven Zverev quickly offered three chances to come back, but Sinner also showed the mental aspect of his game, saving the three break points

    When changing, at the end of the game Zverev looked quite uncomfortable and the doctor and coach were soon on the pitch Zverev had a word with them and it seemed like he was struggled with his health

    After a brief discussion he resumed play, keeping his serve at 0, before Sinner easily held on to a 5-2 lead. Zverev had another conversation with the doctor about the change, came back and kept his serve at 0 again.He gradually started to look healthier and used that relief to challenge Sinner as the Italian served for the set.

    However, the powerful young player was not at all edgy and saved two break points, before sealing the set on his third set point Sinner had more winners, but surprisingly he also had 8 more unforced errors than Zverev.However, his excellent net play made the difference

    Both players then started the second set well Then, quite similarly, in the first set, Sinner beat Zverev early to a 2-1 lead While Zverev would be expected to return to the game. After an early break, Sinner just wouldn’t let go of his opportunity

    He continued his supremacy behind the serve and in the shot Sinner tied Zverev shot for shot, not giving him a single chance to make a comeback Zverev’s frustration came out in the first point of Game 8 He got argued with the chair umpire on a line call and quickly went 5-3 behind

    Sinner then jumped at the prospect of taking a two-set lead and serving first in the 3rd He broke Zverev’s serve again to win the set on his second break point

    In a bid to repeat his second-round exploits, Zverev broke Sinner’s serve in Game 1 himself Just when it looked like Zverev was regaining his lineup, he succumbed to a lack of focus combined with an awesome game from Sinner

    Serving a 4-2 lead, Zverev lost the game 40-0 Sinner added to the woes of Zverev jumping to a 4-3 lead in no time At 4-4, a long game called and Zverev managed to break again, against the course of the game Serving the set he once again squandered a 40-0 lead but held back to eventually serve him in his sixth set point

    Despite playing a much more experienced player at the highest level, Sinner showed no sign of being a rookie He only lost one point in the first two games to make a break in the 4th set

    A long match ensued as Zverev continued, but Sinner saved a breakpoint for 3-0 In his next service game, Zverev pushed him again, but Sinner just didn’t moved back and rose 4-1

    In the next game, Sinner landed an absolutely stunning forehand to beat Zverev for pace That pretty much sums up Zverev’s day Sinner quickly took a 5-2 lead In the game’s service, Sinner didn’t again showed no nervousness and sealed a place to his first Grand Slam quarter-final
