The 2020 French Open ends the third match day. U.S. Open runner-up Zverev Jr. went through five sets of 3 hours and 59 minutes
Up until this point in his career, the young German Zverev has won 12 singles victories in Roland Garros, of which 6 games have played 5 sets. Facing the men's doubles Grand Slam winner Albert at home, Zverev Jr. started as slow as the first round. Albert was even one point away to build a huge 6-2, 5-1 lead, but Zvey was about to start a counterattack when he was about to fall behind 0-2 in total. The German star relied on a precise forehand shot to fulfill the key breakback, thereby blowing the counter-attack horn. Albert could not stop the counterattack of Jr. Zvi, who came back in the second set in 5 straight games.
In the third set, the two sides were in a stalemate all the way to the tie-break. Albert squandered his lead in the tie-break, and Zvi scored 6 of the final 7 points. In the fourth set, Albert began to surf the Internet frantically, and was very efficient before the net, conceding only 2 points in total. The host player held a break advantage. Zvi made a backhand error in the face of the inventory, and Albert dragged the game into the final set.
Jr. Zvey has been defeated by the tenacious Albert in the deciding set on more than one occasion, including wasting a 5-3 lead in serve wins. However, Albert also failed to keep the tenth inning, which was indispensable. Zvi Jr. used a backhand to pick up the high ball to make the last break.
