Controversial situation at the match Alexander Zverev - Jannik Sinner. At one point German tennis player pointed out that someone in the stands yelled "the most famous Hitler phrase". The security was looking for the person at least 10 minutes.
The crowd cheered when the man was finally led out of the stadium.
Alexander Zverev could not believe the behavior of the fan
"That's not acceptable, unbelievable!" Zverev said on the court. The umpire reacted immediately and called security.
It is not known why the fan yelled in this way, but an attempt at provocation cannot be ruled out. The tennis players returned to the game after a while and were able to finish the match without any problems. Finally, after 4 hours and 42 minutes, Zverev enjoyed the victory 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.
The German eliminated the champion of the recent ATP 1000 tournament in Toronto and advanced to the quarterfinals of the US Open. Zverev were very happy after the match against Sinner. "This was my most extended US Open match.
It's unbelievable, and I can say I'm back. These kinds of nights are what I live for, and these are the matches I want to be involved with. Obviously, I would have loved to play a slightly shorter match" Alexander Zverev said.
"I remember everything I felt last year when I could not compete due to injury. I missed this emotion, playing beyond 01:30 in the morning in front of a packed Arthur Ashe Stadium. There is nothing better than this". Zverev will play in the next match with Carlos Alcaraz.
Zverev faces a very difficult task in the form of defeating the current leader of the ATP world ranking and the defender of the title from a year ago in New York. The match between the German and the Spaniard will take place on Wednesday.
Alcaraz defeated in the fourth round Italian Matteo Arnaldi 6-3, 6-3, 6-4. The better of the two will play in the semifinal against one of the Russians: Daniil Medvedev or Andrey Rublev.
