Tennis – ATP Acapulco: Alexander Zverev is doing well against Jenson Brooksby, the match ended at… 4:55 am!

By

It’s a match that goes straight into the history of tennis. After a huge fight on the Acapulco side, Alexander Zverev ended up winning in his round of 16 against Jenson Brooksby… at 4:55 a.m. You read correctly. In the history of tennis, never has a match ended so late. He broke the record for the Hewitt-Baghdatis confrontation at the Australian Open in 2008, which then found its epilogue at 4:34 in the morning.

Long in difficulty, Zverev ended up overcoming the American after more than three hours of play (3-6, 7-6, 6-2), erasing two match points in the tie-break of the second set. If this match dragged on for a good part of the night, it was also for its start time, which was original to say the least: 1:30 a.m. local time. Despite the fatigue, the German therefore proved to be the strongest to overcome his opponent.
