Cincinnati - Robin Haase sent Alexander Zverev crashing out in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters in a 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 upset on Wednesday, leaving the German winless in four appearances at the pre-US Open tournament.

His early exit came a week after Zverev lost in the Toronto quarter-finals to fellow youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The 55th-ranked Haase clinched a surprise victory when third seed Zverev fired a return long after losing serve six times.

Zverev came into the event leading the ATP with 43 match wins this season, while it was a seventh career win over a top 10 player for Dutchman Haase.
