ZVEREV ON COURSE FOR FIRST GRAND SLAM

      The German tennis star stepped on to the court hoping to reach his first ever US Open Semi Final as he faced Croatian opponent Brona Coric.

It was a match Zverev prepared for through his career and with the ending of Novak Djokovic’s tournament coupled with the unfortunate absence of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, the opportunity of a new champion has presented itself and Zverev has always had his eyes on the prize.

     It was a testy first set for the 23-year-old German as he stumbled into a 1-6 loss to Coric. This didn’t deter him though as he fought his way back with two impressive tie breaks and a late break in the fourth set to win the match 1-6, 7-6(7-5), 7-6(7-1), 6-3.

     Zverev unhappy with his early performance stated he needed to up his game for the semi finals as he prepares to face a Spanish opponent with a resilient attitude in Pablo Carreno Busta who came out victorious after a quarter final game that lasted four hours.
