Alexander Zverev hit 14 double faults as he lost to Ilya Ivashka after having served for the match in the Munich quarter-finals.

The world No. 6 was defeated 6-7 (5-7), 7-5, 6-3 by the Belarusian qualifier at the ATP 250 tournament. The German served for the match at 5-4 in the second set, before losing serve twice in a row, and twice again in the decider.

Zverev hit six of his 14 double faults in the second set and seven in the third.

“This is a match I should never have lost – I’m sad and disappointed,” Zverev said in a post-match interview.

World No. 107 Ivashka said in his post-match interview: “This match was really tough for me and I was [close to losing] in the second set.

“I managed well and I tried stay in and fight until the last moment to see if he would give [me] chances and it happened.

“I just came to play match after match. I knew that I had played well [in the] previous weeks, but I was not expecting [this run].”
