3. Tennis – Masters 1000 Monte-Carlo: Zverev dodges Delboni’s ambush, Rublev recovers

It also applies to Andrey Rublev, who was eliminated by Australian Nick Kyrgios in the first round in Miami but was not surprised by another Australian on the Monegasque ocher, Alex de Minaur (2-6, 6-1, 6-4) .
Zverev, the right start
