Zverev beats Brooksby in two sets

Alex Zverev scores a 2-1 win against Jenson Brooksby to move past the round of 64 at the Indian Wells Masters. The German star found his groove and went on to claw his way back after a tough loss in the second set. Alex is glad to move on to the next round after this win.

While there are rare cases of intense games in the early rounds of any tourney, the Indian Wells saw a huge battle between these two young stars. Zverev won 6-4, 3-6 and 6-1 and he enjoyed a strong run that earned him the big win. That was a show of dominance from one of the best talents in the ATP Tour.

Zverev had 12 aces and five double faults. He had 67% on the first serve and had winning rates of 73% and 74%. The star lost only one of his break points and had four out of five. Alex won a total of 15 games in the match and earned a total of 79 points.

Jenson was inspired in his games, but Alex survived all of that and the third set was a huge set of plays for the star. Alex has won both in Madrid and Cincinnati this season, and he carried the same pace he had from the two wins.

Alex had a lot of praise for Jenson’s push in their match. The American has beaten Cem Ilkel and even took a set from Novak Djokovic in the US Open’s fourth round. Jenson almost had a big show in the game.

It was never an easy match to begin with. Alex said he was happy to be through with it. This was a huge win for Alex and he survived a scare from a rising star that could have given him a stunning loss if it wasn’t for his strong plays in the third set.

It took an hour and 48 minutes for Alex to win the game. He had a tough time against Jenson but he managed to come out of it with his pace still alive. This should help him get a win in the later rounds as he continues to push for more success in the coming games of the Indian Wells.
