Alexander Zverev is upset and clueless after losing to Great Britain’s Daniel Evans in four sets in the 2nd round of the 2016 US Open.

Right after his loss to number 64 ranked Daniel Evans Zverev says during the interview inside Arthur-Ashe-Stadium:

I played badly. I had no clue what I was doing on the court.

From Zverev’s perspective, seeded 27th in the draw and ranked 28th on the ATP tour, he was supposed to beat Daniel Evans yet meeting or exceeding expectations after a break-through year is very challenging for a player.

It looks like he’s a bid in a slump and mentally cannot find a way to win. On the one hand he had 1st round losses at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati and Rogers Cup in Toronto to players ranked well behind him (Yuichi Sugita #102 & Yen-Hsun Lu #70). On the other hand Zverev and Evans both had 14 break points but Zverev only won 3 of them whereas Evans converted on 6.
