Lucky loser Maden reaches 2nd round in Metz
METZ, France (AP) — Lucky loser Yannick Maden upset fellow German Mischa Zverev 7-5, 4-6, 6-1 to reach the second round of the Moselle Open on Monday.
The 120th-ranked Maden saved seven of nine break points on his way to his first win on the main tour since May in Munich.
Maden was included in the main draw on Monday after No. 8-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber withdrew from the indoor tournament.
Maden will next be up against wild card Quentin Halys or last year’s runner-up, Benoit Paire, who helped France qualify for the Davis Cup final over the weekend.
