Alexander Zverev coasted into the last 32 at Wimbledon thanks to a 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 rout of Tennys Sandgren on Thursday afternoon. Zverev turned in a convincing performance on Court 2, doubling his unforced error count (18) with winners (36) to advance in one hour and 45 minutes.

The sixth-ranked German fired 13 aces while double-faulting only twice.

“I feel pretty [good],” Zverev assured. “Of course I know that the opponents are getting tougher. I know that I need to play better tennis. But all in all, I’m happy where I am. I hope I can continue to build on my form…. I feel like the top guys always raise their level in the second week of Grand Slams. I hope to do that as well.”

He awaits either Taylor Fritz or Steve Johnson on Saturday.
