He might have preferred a tidier match, but Alexander Zverev will definitely be happy with his result from the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presentado por HSBC in Acapulco on Wednesday. The second seed saved three set points in the first set and eventually overcame countryman Peter Gojowczyk 7-6(6), 6-3 to move into the quarter-finals in Mexico.

Zverev was serving at 5-6 in the first set but fell behind 15/40 only to save both set points, and in the tie-break, he erased another set point at 5/6. A break at 4-3 in the second set sealed the match.

The World No. 5 converted both of his break-point chances while erasing eight of the nine break points he faced. Gojowczyk had been playing well, too, having reached his second ATP World Tour final at the Delray Beach Open on Sunday (l. to #NextGenATP Tiafoe).

Zverev, in his first quarter-final of the season, will meet Ryan Harrison of the U.S., who handed Argentina's Diego Schwartzman his first loss in six matches 6-3, 5-7, 6-4. Harrison, who reached the semi-finals at 2015 Acapulco, won nearly 60 per cent of Schwartzman's second-serve points.

During his breakout 2017, Zverev reached 12 quarter-finals and won five ATP World Tour titles.
