Zverev sinks to Davidovich Fokina in Toronto Masters 1000 second round

Zverev sinks to Davidovich Fokina in Toronto Masters 1000 second round

Alexander Zverev had arguments that could suggest that he would cross the second round in Toronto. Already, he led 3-0 in his confrontations against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. But also because in four appearances at the Canada Open (disputed in Montreal and Toronto from one year to the next), he had reached the quarter-finals three times. But the German, 16th in the world, was largely dominated (6-1, 6-2) in just one hour by the Spaniard, 37th in the world, who will be opposed to world number 5, Casper Ruud, in eighth to Toronto.

With 15 winning strokes for 2 unforced errors, Davidovich Fokina made the match almost perfect. The same cannot be said for Zverev, who only won three small points behind his second ball, or 17% of points won.


This is Alejandro Davidovich Fokina’s second victory against a top-20 player this year, after his victory against Holger Rune in Madrid in May.

Medvedev in eighth, Raonic too

In the other results of the evening in Toronto, Milos Raonic, 545th in the world, continues his journey after winning (6-4, 6-3) against Taro Daniel. He will face Mackenzie McDonald, who beat Andrey Rublev, in the next round. World number 3 Daniil Medvedev easily won the first set, before being heckled by Italian qualifier Matteo Arnaldi, who was finally beaten (6-2, 7-5). Next opponent for the Russian: Lorenzo Musetti (19th).
