NEW YORK (AP) — No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev has made another Week 1 exit at the U.S. Open, losing this time to 34th-ranked Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 in an all-German matchup in the third round.
The 21-year-old Zverev is considered a rising star of men's tennis. He already has won three Masters titles in his career and leads the tour with 45 wins this season.
But he has only one Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance so far, at this year's French Open, and he's now 4-4 at the U.S. Open. In four appearances at Flushing Meadows, he has one loss in the first round, two in the second, and one in the third.
