Tennis: Medvedev, Zverev eliminated in Rotterdam
Sixth-seeded David Goffin needed just over an hour to beat Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4, 6-0
Top-seeded Daniil Medvedev’s 12 aces weren’t enough as the Australian Open runner-up was beaten 7-6 (4), 6-4 by Dusan Lajovic in the first round of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament on Wednesday.
It wasn’t the day’s only upset in Rotterdam, with third-seeded Alexander Zverev also losing. The 30-year-old Serbian player faces Borna Coric of Croatia in the second round.
Alexander Bublik beat Zverev 7-5, 6-3 to set up a second-round meeting with Tommy Paul. Zverev, coming off a quarterfinal loss to Djokovic in Australia, went a break up in each set against Bublik but each time was then broken twice himself.
Sixth-seeded David Goffin needed just over an hour to beat Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4, 6-0. He’ll meet qualifier Jeremy Chardy in the second round.
