Alexander Zverev’s dismal 2019 form continued as he crashed out of the Italian Open in the second round.
Zverev has struggled all year and was hoping clay court season would provide some relief, but he looks in more trouble than ever following the 7-5, 7-5 defeat to Italian wild card Matteo Berrettini.
Grigor Dimitrov also just can’t seem to get any traction to arrest his decline, with the Bulgarian falling 6-4, 6-7 (5-7), 6-3 to Jan-Lennard Struff.
Elsewhere, Nick Kyrgios beat Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, and David Goffin was in dominant mood against Stan Wawrinka, whom he beat 4-6, 6-0, 6-2.
Guido Pella, Benoit Paire, and Richard Gasquet all crashed out though.
