Everything looked good for Zverev in the second set after he broke Delbonis again in the 6th game (4-2), but once again the Argentine fought back in the following game (4-3) before winning the breaker at the tiebreak at 6. (7-6)
In the third set, the world no.5 was much more composed to break the Argentine twice (3rd and 9th game) without conceding his serve any more.
The final score was 7-5 6-7 (6) 6-3 and the match ended after 2 hours and 38 minutes.
