The world number five faced tough resistance from Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili in the match opener, but managed to seize the initiative to claim a two-set victory 7-5 6-4.
After smashing a backhand winner in the first set, Zverev raised his fist and roared – terrifying the nearby ballkid, who was jolted backwards and popped out his eyes while the German approached.
