Görges and Zverev miss the quarter-finals - Sport

If you would like to know why Julia Görges lost this match against Donna Vekic (Croatia) with 7: 6 (5), 5: 7, 3: 6 and eliminated in the round of the last sixteen of the US Open, then the opponent's first serve is the first Emphasized: Görges was close to baseline at Vekic's opening, taking the balls extremely early and putting enormous pressure on the returns. She did not let Vekic get into the rallies, so she did not have to move too much herself, and she usually played the points consistently. Vekic failed to score a single point in the game, and the break completed Görges's line with a powerful and precise backhand.

Görges has the playful means to cause any opponent in women's tennis serious problems, if she succeeds in using these playful means: if she served courageously, if she also acts forcefully on her backhand, even if she sometimes goes online. So if she employs her opponent, dominating rallies, forcing mistakes. If she does not make herself smaller than she is, as in Wimbledon against Serena Williams (3: 6, 4: 6). This way of playing requires confidence in one's own abilities, which, of course, gets a little bigger with each point won. Then she not only wins the rallies that she dominates, but also the more difficult ones.

Only: If she makes a few mistakes, if she starts to shake, to doubt herself, then suddenly it becomes difficult. Therefore, from this game also Görges' serve from the second set is recommended, in which she forgave a match point with a light backhand error and produced a total of three double faults - and her serve after that, in which she allowed three set balls with slight mistakes and Vekic She left the passage through a far too long forehand. The decisive break in the third set succeeded Vekic by a double fault of Görges, the match ball Görges suggested a smash in the off. Vekic now face Belinda Bencic (Switzerland), defending defending champion Naomi Osaka.

It's all bigger in New York and also on the Flushing Meadows tennis court: the tennis stadiums, the popcorn buckets, the hole in the purse after buying a cocktail ($ 18). Only those who make themselves a bit bigger will win here. Görges has played partly outstanding at this US Open, also against Vekic. She lost because she made herself smaller than she really is.

Zverev fails because of the poisonous Schwartzman

Also Alexander Zverev went out in his second round match empty and had to give the poisonous Argentinian Diego Schwartzman after a too faulty performance 6: 3, 2: 6, 4: 6, 3: 6 beaten. Thus the quarterfinals of the US Open take place without German participation.

After a strong first set, the world ranking sixth fell into old patterns: Zverev showed as in the weak games in the run-up to the tournament enormous problems in the second serve and lined up double faults on double faults - 17, it was a total against Schwartzman. To do this he lost too many simple balls and made 65 "unforced errors".

Zverev looked tired after the lost third set, twice he had the 1.70 m small Schwartzman in the fourth round take the serve. The 0: 4 he served the Argentinian befitting a double error - the speed of the second impact of 106 km / h demonstrated Zverevs uncertainty.

In his first three games at Flushing Meadows, Zverev had been in the field for over three hours each. Also this time developed due to many long rallies a debilitating game, which decided the Argentinians after 3:08 hours with the second match point despite a last Aufbäumen Zverevs for themselves. Previously, the German even had a point deduction because of a strong expression.
