An unbeaten start for the German tennis player, who broke in the first game of the match, leading from the very beginning. Sascha played with confidence as he was already ahead and he knew how to find a lot of stability in the serve which was always a crucial factor in his game pattern to leave little options for the unpredictable Grenier without answers. The Frenchman could break for zero, but again he was going to give up his serve before a deep comeback from the Teuton, who was already 4-1 up. Grenier struggled with every point against Zverev, who left no doubt. The German took the first set 6-1.

The stands tried to support the Frenchman, but everything seemed already decided without him even close to a chance. A very long game in that quarter with Hugo fighting back but eventually giving up once more. After that critical moment, it was all about Sascha, who sealed his victory with a resounding 6-0.
