Zverev gets the first break, his return of serve forcing Alcaraz too deep into the court. The first break point saved by a nice drop shot.

Then comes a third break chance, via another fine return, and on second serve, Zverev finally breaks, his backhand down the line sending Alcaraz sprawling.Zverev far more sure on his serve, and Alcaraz is forced into a couple of errors.
