German Tennis Championships 2016: Monday Scores, Results, Updated Draw Schedule

Published by Bleacher Report on Mon, 11 Jul 2016

Argentinian veteran Maximo Gonzalez caused the upsetof the day at the 2016 German Tennis Championships on Monday, beating the fifth-seeded Jeremy Chardy in three sets. The 32-year-old, who has never won a career title in singles and sits well outside the top 100, came back from a 5-3 deficit and a match point for his opponent in the final set to win a sloppy tiebreak.Nicolas Almagro needed three sets to get past qualifier Jan Satral, and Pablo Cuevas cruised to the next round by beating wild card Florian Mayer.Top seed Philipp Kohlschreiber will be in action on Tuesday against Carlos Berlocq. Here's a look at Monday's results:To access the full schedule and draw, visit the ATP's official website. RecapGonzalez and Chardy served up a sloppy but exciting match in their first-round clash, which was filled with twists and turns in the final set.The unseeded Gonzalez had shocked Chardy in the first set with some clever groundstrokes before Chardy seemingly restored order in the second, and the Frenchman appeared to be on his way to a win.But four breaks, nine break points and a match point for Chardy later, a tiebreak had to decide a winner. In that tiebreak, Chardy dropped serve four more times, and Gonzalez grabbed an unlikely win on his own serve.Almagro struggled in his win over Satral, needing three sets to get past the 25-year-old. Satral, who is ranked No. 206 in the world, held his own in the rallies against his much more experienced opponent. As TennisTV shared, though, Almagro was far from his best:The four double faults are a worry, but even more worrying are the 24 unforced errors. Almagro is a defensive specialist who does most of his damage with his groundstrokes, and if those aren't clicking, he won't go far in the tournament.Tennis writer Jake Davies credited the underdog for his good showing, noting his aggressiveness:Cuevas had it a little easier on Monday, beating Mayer in straight sets. The Uruguayan dominated from the baseline, sending his opponent all over the court and hitting winner after winner.While his first serve didn't always run smoothly, he more than made up for it with his second serve, slicing it outside and keeping Mayer off balance.Davies was impressed:Grega Zemljadropped just three games in his win over wild card Marvin Moeller, and Nicolas Kicker battled to a hard-fought win over Thomas Fabbiano.Kohlschreiber and Alexander Zverev will be in action on Tuesday.
