Alexander Zverev showed signs of a return to his explosive best in a 6-1 6-4 win over Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Zverev, who lives in Monte Carlo, reached the semi-finals of his 'home' event a year ago, but has endured a difficult 2019 season.

After finishing runner-up to Nick Kyrgios in Acapulco, Zverev has suffered early exits at Indian Wells, Miami and Marrakech.

A sick Alexander Zverev was sent packing from the BNP Paribas Open with a 6-3 6-1 defeat by fellow German Jan-Lennard Struff in the third round at Indian Wells, California on Monday.

The night match between world number one Novak Djokovic, who is playing his first tournament since his Australian Open triumph in January, and Philipp Kohlschreiber was suspended with the top seed leading 1-0.

Struff saved all four break points he faced and took barely an hour to clinch his first career win over Zverev in five attempts.

Nick Kyrgios saved his best performance of a brilliant week for last as the Australian stunned second seed Alexander Zverev 6-3 6-4 to win the Acapulco International in Mexico on Saturday for his fifth career ATP title.

The temperamental Aussie, whose scintillating run to the final included wins over multiple grand slam winners Stan Wawrinka and Rafa Nadal, played free and focused from the outset and frustrated German Zverev with a steady diet of drop shots.

Alexander Zverev smashed his racket into the court eight times in frustration after he went 4-1 down in the second set against Milos Raonic.

By that time it was all but over as the big-serving Canadian rolled to a 6-1, 6-1, 7-6 (5) victory on Monday to reach the quarterfinals of the Australian Open for the fourth time.

Raonic dropped the opening game but then rebounded by winning the next eight.

Zverev held serve to end that streak, but was broken again two games later and that tipped him over.

Alexander Zverev was upset by Philipp Kohlschreiber in four sets in the US Open third round.

Kohlschreiber won 6-7(1) 6-4 6-1 6-3.

The versatile 34-year-old showed none of the mental fragility that has dogged him in the past, recovering well after being trounced in a first set tiebreak to set up a last 16 meeting with Japan's Kei Nishikori, the 21st seed.

Alexander Zverev reached the second round with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-2 victory over Peter Polansky.

Zverev needed just 96 minutes to dispatch Polansky, a Canadian who had the odd distinction of becoming the first player to make the main draw of all four Grand Slams in a single year as a lucky loser.

Polandky's luck ran out in the first round, just as it did at the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.

Zverev hopes to repeat last year's success when he beat South African Kevin Anderson in the Washington final and then beat Roger Federer a week later in the final of the Canadian Open.

"Washington is perfect preparation for Toronto and Cincinnati," Zverev said, eyeing the major tuneups ahead of U.S. Open.

"I've done a good two weeks of training, just general stuff. It was like a mini off-season for me, just a lot of work trying to get ready for the hardcourts."
