Alexander Zverev has to stomach Wimbledon defeat by Ernests Gulbis

08 Juillet, 2018, 08:08 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

It was unclear if the 21-year-old was still struggling with the problem when he took to Court 1 against Gulbis. "I know my game, it's adapting well for this surface and I won in three sets, which is good for my body".

"Today in the warm-up I was actually maybe thinking about it, not to play at all". I didn't eat anything since yesterday. Things happen. I thought after I won the third set, I'm going to get out with a win. "If I feel better, it might be two.' I thought I'd go out there and try". I had break points in the beginning of the fourth. "I was feeling physically really good".

Zverev has plenty of practice at scrambling out of trouble after three times winning from two sets to one down at the recent French Open. But I always say the same: "Roger and Rafa Nadal are the favourites, although there are many players who can be important in the last matches too".

"For me, we played in darkness for one and a half hours".

"What can I do?"

"I saw that he was getting exhausted in the fifth set", said the Latvian, smiling.

"I'd rather go five than lose in four, be out of here, book a flight for me to go home tomorrow. That's what matters for me".

He will next face Ernests Gulbis.

After enjoying the best Grand Slam run of his career when he made the French Open quarter-finals last month, Zverev is hoping to reach the last eight at Wimbledon for the first time.

He hit the headlines on Tuesday when he was fined £1,500 for "snapping" at a ball boy and for shouting at fans to "shut up" when he beat 19-year-old Briton Jay Clarke. Claiming he is starting to fulfil his vast potential, Zverev added: "The difference between now and a year ago, probably a little longer ago, is that when I'm down two sets to one or something like that, I don't really panic".

'I showed in Paris and other matches that I don't really get exhausted in five-set matches.

"I think he's a future grand slam victor", Gulbis said.
