Zverev breezes past Hurkacz, enters last four


Alexander Zverev set up a clash with Novak Djokovic in the last four of the ATP Final after a 6-2, 6-4 win over Hubert Hurkacz on Thursday.

World No.3 Zverev clinched a semi-final spot behind already qualifier Daniil Medvedev in just over an hour and will face World No.1 on Saturday for a place in the final.


Zverev appeared to have completed his qualification very quickly after reaching the first set in just 26 minutes with a dominant tennis display.

Seventh-seeded Hurkacz won just nine points in the first set as Zverev made the first four games before serving to quickly take the lead.

However, Hurkacz unloaded his powerful serve to put the breaks on his opponent, landing 10 aces to gain a foothold in the game until finally losing his serve in Game 9 to give Zverev his chance to strike.

He wasn’t wrong in winning his serve and securing a clash with Djokovic this weekend.

Meanwhile, Norway’s Casper Ruud on Wednesday defeated British substitute Cameron Norrie 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the night game to keep his chances of reaching the last four.

The results: Groupe Rouge: Alexander Zverev v Hubert Hurkacz 6-2, 6-4.

Green Group: Casper Ruud vs. Cameron Norrie 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.
