“First of all, huge shout-out to Taylor and his team today. We both deserved to win today, it was great tennis. I just think I got a little bit of lucky and stayed in the fourth set. I just tried to make him play as much as possible.”
After hours of mystery surrounding why Zverev vs Mannarino was delayed, the US Open organisers have released a statement.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t do much to confirm why the match didn’t go ahead on time.
“The Zverev-Mannarino match was delayed while a collaborative dialogue with health officials was conducted today. Communication with the players was ongoing during the afternoon to keep them updated at all times. Given the sensitivity of the medical issues involved, the USTA is not able to provide further details.”
Alex Zverev’s third-round match against Adrian Mannarino will go ahead following a lengthy delay after reports suggested the Frenchman was self-isolating amid Covid-19 fears.
With that news, the German decided to put his feet up (literally).
