Taylor Fritz pulled off an impressive upset at Wimbledon on Monday, defeating Alexander Zverev in five sets on Center Court 4-6, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3.

Not only did Fritz, the No. 13 seed defeat No. 4 Zverev on Center Court, but he did so after losing the first two sets of the match.

After winning the fourth set on a tiebreak, Fritz seemed to carry all the momentum into the decisive fifth set while Zverev appeared to be spent. Those who have followed his play noted that he often looks up to his player, seeking help and guidance from his coach. But Fritz didn’t do so against Zverev, apparently feeling confident that he had control of the match.

Fritz advances to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam event for the fourth time in his career, having previously done so at the Australian Open earlier this year, last year’s U.S. Open and two years ago at Wimbledon.
