Sharjah 24 – Asaad Khalil:
German Open Champion Alexander Zverev defeated Canadian Meadows Runic 6-1, 6-1, 7 in the 4th round four times in Australian Open Championship Grand Slam 6-1, 6-1, 7-6 (7-5) -6 (7-5).
The fourth set Zverev came out twice the disappointment of German tennis fans a day after the German star Angelique Kerber left the tournament.
21-year-old, who was a candidate for the title after the defeat of Swiss giants Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, was in shock for the final championship in November.
Sixteen-year-old Runicka needs two hours to finish the match against Zverev and qualify for the quarterfinals.
