Alexander Tsverev (26, Germany, World No. 27) has reached the quarterfinals of the Geneva Open on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour.
Zverev defeated Chinese tennis sensation Wu Yibing (23, World No. 59) in straight sets in the singles quarterfinals of the ATP Tour 250스포츠토토 Series Geneva Open in Geneva, Switzerland on Saturday (June 26).
