Erste Bank Open, Austria
[CR136] Alexander Zverev, a 17 year old German player, is putting in the hard work to improve his game and his ranking by playing in the qualifying rounds of ATP World Tour tournaments and also in ATP Challenger tournaments.
He was hoping to make it into the main draw at the 2014 Erste Bank Open, Austria; however, he was beaten in the last round of qualifying by a fellow German, [CR207] Daniel Brands. Zverev had nine opportunities to break, unfortunately he only converted once and it was not enough to secure the victory. The good news for him, he is in the main draw in doubles and he can still make it to the singles main draw if he gets a lucky loser spot.
