Monday Results: https://t.co/IF3ZLV5h1t pic.twitter.com/ZABjwv K7g C — W&S Open (@Cincy Tennis) August 15, 2017 Immediately from the get-go, Verdasco couldn’t hold serve in the opening game of the match.
Verdasco, who is as famous for his devastating shot-making as for his numerous erratic misfires, characteristically double faulted and followed it up with a netted forehand to hand Zverev the lead and the confidence to build on.
After Zverev successfully let his lefty serve swerve away from Verdasco’s backhand time and time again on the ad court, it was Verdasco’s turn again to show heart on serve.
Zverev however pushed Verdassco back with deep groundstrokes.
As previously mentioned, Murray is twice a Wimbledon champion, having won in 20.He had arguably his toughest match in the quarterfinals, coming from two sets down to beat Fernando Verdasco, before making his second consecutive final by beating 24th seed Jerzy Janowicz in four sets in the semifinal.He then claimed his second Grand Slam title by seeing off top seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets.Zverev then could swing freely, employing his serve & volley game to great effect to lead 2-0.Verdasco steadied the ship with a relative easy following service game.
