Alexander Zverev did bring smiles to the spectators’ faces, but perhaps, not the way he would have liked.

The German tennis star, seeded fourth, stumbled to a shocking first-round defeat the Paris Masters, going down 6-3 2-6 2-6 to Dutch world No. 43 Robin Haase on Wednesday.

Despite the dismal show, Zverev found a way to have a laugh on the court.

It happened after Zverev served out a game to make it 4-1 in the first set, when – while changing ends – he untied the shoelace of chair umpire.

Meanwhile, Zverev will look to end his season on a high when he participates at the year-ending World Tour Finals.

Haase, on the other hand, will meet either 13th seed Juan Martin del Potro or qualifier Joao Sousa in the second round.
