I'm not sure about this, but I think the phrase to zero in actually comes from adjusting the sights on a gun so that it is accurate. So, to zero in is to focus with precision on something. For example, "during the fight, the coach was able to zero in on the opponent's weaknesses and instruct his own fighter what to do".
