"I'm just kidding," says Zverev with a mischievous smile, then the fans clap.

"I like the loud, I like the emotions, that's part of it.

Hopefully we can get back to normal soon."

He is then asked why he no longer wears sleeveless jerseys.

Zverev then rolled up his sleeves and said with a wink: "I heard in the dressing room that my arms are so muscular that my shirt will soon burst." Zverev has to laugh himself and the spectators also burst out laughing.

Match briefly interrupted

Zverev - Millman 4: 3

- Zverev interrupts the game because there is a microphone on the court somewhere and therefore an annoying buzz can be heard.

In the end, Millman takes the points after the two of them have again delivered almost endless rallies.

Played for over half an hour - and only 4:3.

Might be a long number here.

Zverev - Millman 4: 2

- The serve is coming!

Zverev gets through his game because he can handle Millman nicely.

Brother Mischa is also looking very satisfied from the stands.

Zverev - Millman 3: 2

- Now Millman also brings through his first service game.

But not because he plays outstandingly, but because Zverev makes too many simple mistakes.

When the score was 30:30, the third in the world rankings unnecessarily hit his backhand in the net.

Bitter!

Zverev - Millman 3: 1

- Yes!

Zverev brings his serve through.

The first step has been taken so that the German can get some air.

Ai, that's bitter of course.

- Wow!

Strong start from Zverev, who gets a break in the first game.

The German seems alert and very, very focused.

It can go on like this.

- serve in the Rod Laver Arena.

Millman serves to kick off, we're hot!

Australian Open now in the live ticker: Zverev challenged against Millman

Update from January 19, 10:31 a.m .:

Here we go!

Alex Zverev is currently still in the dressing room and is stretching, but the protagonists should appear on the court soon.

It will be interesting to see what comes from local hero Millman today, because he's not really under any pressure.

With the audience behind him, he can actually play freely.

"I played against him a few times," said Zverev, who announced after his first round match: "I hope I play better.

I have to improve."

Update from January 19, 10:20 am:

Game, Set and Match!

At least for Osaka, who now beats Brengle in two sets (6:0, 6:4) and moves into the next round.

The court is free, so Zverev will come soon.

We're looking forward to it.

Update from January 19,

10:08 a.m .: In the Brengle match against Osaka we are currently in the second set and 3: 3 - we are not assuming that Zverev will be here on the court in a good five minutes.

Update from January 19, 9:56 a.m .:

Zverev’s game should actually start at 10:15 a.m. in the Rod Laver Arena.

Currently there are still Madison Brengle from the USA and Naomi Osaka from Japan on the court. Only then does the German number 1 come into play.

We are excited to see if it starts on time.

Video: Good start!

Alexander Zverev wins German duel at Australian Open

First report from January 19:

Munich / Melbourne - As is so often the case in the second round of a Grand Slam tournament, the entire German burden is on Alexander Zverev.

The Olympic champion is still holding up the flags of the Federal Republic at the Australian Open.

Even if there was already a curious moment about him.

Because Angelique Kerber, Yannik Hanfmann, Dominik Koepfer and Oscar Otte are all out.

After all, the doubles Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies were able to record a successful Grand Slam return.

Australian Open now in the live ticker: Mega pressure for Zverev

But now all eyes are on Zverev.

One day after Kerber left, the hopeful at the Australian Open is aiming for the third round.

In the second game of the night session in the Rod Laver Arena, the third in the world rankings meets the Australian John Millman on Wednesday.

Against the world number 89.

Zverev has won both previous comparisons, but at the French Open in Paris 2019 he needed five sets.

With the heat in Melbourne and the already exhausting start, a few fewer sentences for Zverev would not be wrong.
