Alexander Zverev advances into Geneva semi-finals as quest for form continues
Alexander Zverev has moved into the semi-finals of the Geneva Open as his quest to regain his form ahead of the French Open continues.
Zverev has endured a tough 2019 so far and has slipped to fifth in the world rankings, but he will now get the chance to head to Paris on the back of a final.
He needed to save a set point when trailing in the first set against world number 92 Hugo Dellien 7-5, 3-6, 6-3.
“I struggled a little bit but still ended up finding a way to win, and that’s most important for me right now,” said Zverev, who has yet to win a title in 2019.
Federico Delbonis or Albert Ramos-Vinolas await in the semi-finals for Zverev, with their match suspended overnight with Delbonis ahead.
Fifth-seed Radu Albot also advanced after beating Damir Dzumhur, and will meet Nicolas Jarry in the semis.
