Paris: Germany's Alexander Zverev was knocked out in the Paris Masters second round when he slumped to a 3-6 6-2 6-2 defeat against Dutch journeyman Robin Haase on Wednesday. The fourth seed, who has already booked his ticket for the season-ending ATP World Tour finals in London, lost his way in the match after Haase levelled at one-set all.
The 20-year-old Zverev converted his only break point in the first set to take the lead while Haase wasted six break chances. But Haase played a bit tighter in the second set and it was enough to unsettle Zverev, who never threatened again in an almost empty AccorHotels Arena. Later on Wednesday, Spain's Rafa Nadal will make sure he ends the year as world number one if he beats South Korea's Chung Hyeon.
