Wimbledon 2021: Alexander Zverev eases past Tennys Sandgren to cruise into third round

Wimbledon 2021: Alexander Zverev eases past Tennys Sandgren to cruise into third round: Fourth seed Alexander Zverev moved smoothly into the third round at Wimbledon with a 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 win over American Tennys Sandgren on Thursday.
The clean-hitting German was always in command of an entertaining tussle on Court Two once he broke Sandgren’s serve at 5-5 in the first set.

Sandgren entertained the crowd with some good-natured banter and could only chuckle when he made a complete mess of a smash to go down a double break in the second set.

Zverev faced only one breakpoint in the match and has yet to drop a set. He will face another American in the next round — either 31st seed Taylor Fritz or Steve Johnson.

“For a second round, I played very decent tennis, but I also do know that there will be guys, there will be opponents who will not let me play this well and who will try to break my rhythm, who will try to break my game up,” Zverev said.

“Those are the kind of moments where I will need to step up and play even better. 

“I do believe I’m at a stage where I come to a tournament to win it… I think I’ve said it before, I’m not in a position right now where I’m satisfied with just a quarter-final or a semi-final.”
