Alexander Zverev defeated Aljaz Bedene in a four-set match at the US Open to reach the fourth round. The German player was safisfied with his improvements. "I think very high-level match", Zverev said. "He played very aggressive, very well, very fast as well.
Sometimes I didn't really have chances on his serve. Playing three tiebreak sets, it could have gone both ways. I'm just happy to be through." Looking to the next rounds, Zverev added: "It's the first time in the second week.
Obviously it's a fourth round. I don't really want to stop here. I want to keep going. I want to keep improving my game. It doesn't get easier, the opponents don't get easier, the matches don't get easier. We'll see how it goes.
But I'm happy for now." What is the biggest thing he needs to work on in his game? "Generally, I mean, all the top guys are getting through the matches, but their aim is to play their best tennis in the second week.
There's still a lot of things to improve. Obviously, I mean, if you go into details, we'll be here for a very long time. In general, the serving, the returning. Everything can still be better." Zverev will next face the Argentinean Diego Schwartzman who defeated the local player Tennys Sandgren on Saturday.
