Alexander Zverev pleased with himself

Sometimes you have to be your own biggest fan is a statement that Alexander Zverev took to heart after his second-round win at the Monte-Carlo Masters.

The fifth seed saw off the challenge of Italian Lorenzo Sonego, winning 6-3, 6-3 in one hour and 38 minutes.

With spectators not allowed to attend the tournament at the Monte Carlo Country Club due to coronavirus restrictions, Zverev decided to have a bit of fun after his win.

After the customary post-match handshake with Sonego, the German made his way to the stands and gave himself a round of applause.
