After his doubles defeat with Brazilian Marcelo Melo against British-Finnish combination Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara, Zverev was no longer in control of his emotions. The 24-year-old German knocked his racket on the umpire’s chair several times. He was immediately kicked out of the tournament for those acts.
