Alexander Zverev won the 1st match of the 2019 Rogers Cup

The 3rd seed Alexander Zverev opened the Montreal Masters with a 7-6 (4) victory, 6-4 against Cameron Norrie in the second round.

Two years ago, Alexander Zverev won his first title in Canada when he defeated Federer in the final in Montreal.

"It's nice to be back at the stadium here. I hope to be able to play many matches this week. I'm happy with this good start", the 22-year-old said after the match.

From the 5-6 lead, Alexander Zverev saved the set-point face to face upstream to pull the opponent into the tie-break series before winning the first set. Maintaining excitement in the second set, the former champion in 2017 closed the match at the first match-point opportunity.

In the upcoming round 3 match, Alexander Zverev will meet Nikoloz Basilashvili - the 13th seed that overcame the German compatriot Jan-Lennard Struff with the score 2-6, 6-2, 6-3. This same Georgian tennis player took down Zverev in the semi-finals in Hamburg last month.

Elsewhere, Kyle Edmund put an end to Nick Kyrgios' six-game winning streak by winning 6-3, 6-4. Edmund will face No. 8 seed Daniil Medvedev in the second round.
