Fourth seed Alexander Zverev played forcefully and overpowered Dutch qualifier Tallon Griekspoor on Tuesday.
Play was suspended because of rain and the roof was closed on Court One where the German, Zverev led a set and a break, but this did not affect the 24 year old as he continued and dominated with his serves. He hit 20 aces and won 77 percent (33/48) and broke Griekspoor’s serve six times to advance in 94 minutes.
“It was good to see everything that slowly went back to normal. I was very happy the moment I walked in to see all these people over here. I felt comfortable on the court. There’s a roof now on Court One and it is great.
Wimbledon is such a historic tournament. They keep on getting better. They keep improving for the betterment of players and public. This is the reason why everyone loves this event,” said Zverev.
Zverev was inevitably asked about the football match and he replied, “I am going to get booed about what I am going to give answer, and I won’t be playing here again. I just hope it goes onto the penalties.”
