NEW YORK — Alexander Zverev used a dominating serve to beat an injury-slowed opponent and reach the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open for the first time.

Zverev served 18 aces during a 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 victory over Alexandro Davidovich Fokina, who got his right ankle taped after the opening game of the third set and had trouble moving on court.

The fifth-seeded Zverev is the first German to reach the U.S. Open quarterfinals since Tommy Haas in 2007.
