Best match of the game: Alcaraz and Zverev fight a high-class cross-duel – with a better result for the Spaniard, who now remains on the trigger.

After two unforced errors, it quickly stands 30: 0 to the local hero, who a little later secures the match’s first break chance after another small backhand error by Hamburg (30:40).

Alcaraz 1-0 Zverev
