With the challenge between Kei Nishikori and Alexander Zverev the curtain falls on day 8 at the Roland Garros 2021. At the third weekly engagement, the German does not make any particular changes to the project. Rather. Despite a first set broken by a break and a counterbreak, Sascha imposes himself with an excellent 6-4 6-1 6-1 that matures at the threshold of two hours of play.
In the other matches, Daniil Medevedev instead beats Christian Garin without too much difficulty. After two practically immaculate sets, seasoned with frightening percentages with the first ball, the Russian contains the Chilean's comeback attempt, recovers a break from behind and at the foot of the tie break settles on 6-1 6-2 7-5.
The main alternative to Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic on earth is called Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek talent, an obligatory favorite in the bottom half, plays an extraordinarily orderly match against Pablo Carreno Busta. Some difficulties only in the third set, at the foot of the finish line, with the Spanish tennis player who, however, does not take advantage of a break advantage and who above all does not find enough valid weapons to cling to the tie break.
At the threshold of two hours of play, the final result is 6-3 6-2 7-5. Below the highlights of the match between Alexander Zverev and Kei Nishikori.
