Perfect Roland Garros preparation for Alexander Zverev as he wins Geneva title

Alexander Zverev in action

Alexander Zverev heads into Roland Garros with a bit of confidence after ending his 2019 title drought with victory over Nicolas Jarry in the Geneva Open final.

It was far from an easy match as there were two rain delays and the German saved two match points before claiming a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (10-8) win in two hours and 35 minutes.

One break of serve was enough to earn Zverev the opening set, but Jarry returned the favour in the second set.

After no breaks in the decider, it went to the tie-breaker and the Chilean first saved three match points before Zverev saved two. However, the world No 5 got the job done at the third time of asking.

“It was a very tough match. He was playing aggressively, serving big and hitting everything he can,” said Zverev. “I thought I was in control until the rain came, but I’m happy to find a way. I felt it could have gone either way.”

He added: “When I start playing good, I don’t worry about titles. I know that I can be one of the best players in the world when I find my rhythm. This week definitely helped with that.”
