Zverev defeats Djokovic to help Hawks to World Tennis League win
Hawks are top of the World Tennis League after two days of action
Although it is an exhibition event, it will give the German plenty of reassurance as he continues his comeback from torn ankle ligaments followed by a bone oedema.
But the Wimbledon champion fought back to win the match in a tiebreak, 0-6, 6-1, 10-6, narrowing the Falcons’ advantage going into the final match of the day to 20-18.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova had earlier replaced Anett Kontaveit in the Hawks mixed doubles with Dominic Thiem, who faced the Falcons’ Paula Badosa and Grigor Dimitrov. The Hawks came back from a set down to win 5-7, 6-3, 10-4 in the third-set tiebreak.
