Ferrer topples third-ranked Zverev in Miami
Ferrer, ranked 155th in the world, is on a farewell tour in 2019, having said he’ll play a limited number of ATP tournaments.
He received a wild card into the Miami draw and advanced to a third-round meeting with American Frances Tiafoe, a 7-6 (8/6), 7-6 (7/5) winner over Miomir Kecmanovic.
Zverev, seeded second behind Serbian Novak Djokovic, coughed up a dozen double faults in the two-hour, 22-minute contest.
The defeat follows the German’s third-round exit at the Indian Wells Masters last week.
