Alexander Zverev was booed by the Court Philippe-Chatrier crowd after erupting at his team when he hit the first double fault of his match against Sebastian Baez. The third seed was already a set down to the world No 36 and gave away a break of serve in the first game of the second with his double fault.

Zverev shouted at his camp, including his father Alexander Zverev Senior and new coach Sergi Bruguera, after double faulting to trail by a set-and-break in his second round at the French Open. Last year’s semi-finalist had lost the opening set 6-2 and was hoping to get himself on the board early in the second, but fumed at his team when he gave away a break of serve to his opponent to further his lead.

As both players went to change sides following the conclusion of the first game, the German didn’t stop at his bench and instead started shrugging at his coaching camp, shouting at them as he approached the side of they court they were sitting on. But the crowd didn’t take well to Zverev’s outburst, booing him for ranting towards his team.

And things went from bad to worse for the 25-year-old, who lost the next three games to find himself a double-break down at 0-4 in the second, facing break points to fall even further behind for 0-5 and give Baez the chance to serve out a bagel set.
