Hand-to-hand combat is not the best concerning zombies. Even if you manage not to get overpowered, you might be bitten. I'd stay at a safe range and plug it with small arms fire until it drops. Then, you know, make sure it doesn't get back up... that happens.... I'm serious.
If you're unlucky enough to get one of those FAST zombies then just empty the magazine as fast as possible... otherwise aim and fire at your own leisure.
