ATP tournament: Tennis professional Struff reaches the round of 16 in Madrid

After his tournament victory in Munich, Jan-Lennard Struff also impressed in Madrid. The veteran is in the last 16 and could face an attractive opponent there.

Jan-Lennard Struff was the first German tennis professional to reach the round of 16 at the Masters 1000 tournament in Madrid. A week after his first title on the ATP tour in Munich, the 34-year-old from Sauerland won 7:5, 6:4 against Frenchman Ugo Humbert.

Struff showed a convincing performance and used his second match point for success with a forehand after 1:37 hours. The veteran scored 34 direct winning strokes with only 18 slight errors against Humbert, who was ranked number 13. The next opponent could now be Spain’s star Carlos Alcaraz.

On Sunday, Daniel Altmaier and Alexander Zverev also have the chance to advance.
