The US Open 2017 has come up with shocking results as fourth seed Alexander Zverev was knocked out of the US Open in four sets by Croatia’s Borna Coric in New York.
BBC Sport reports that the 20-year-old German took the first set but eventually fell to a 3-6 7-5 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-4) defeat on Grandstand Court.
He had three set points in the 12th game of the fourth set to take it into a decider but Coric saved them all and sealed victory in the tie-break.
Despite winning five titles this year, Zverev has still not progressed beyond the last 16 of a Grand Slam.
“It’s upsetting because the draw is pretty open in the bottom part – I felt like I should have been the favourite there. I just played a very, very bad match, that’s just the way it is,” he told BBC Sport.
“I’ve been dealing with expectations from a very young age, so for me this is just another step.
“I know that I could have done some big things here, something that I haven’t done before, but I won’t. It’s as simple as that” he said.
