Alexander Zverev turns offensive. Germany’s number one self-confidence grew dramatically after two tournament wins, and the French Open draw was favorable. In contrast, quick tones can be heard from the sixth team in the world ranking before the start of the Grand Slam tournament in Paris on Sunday.
His brother and coach Misha Zverev said in an interview with Eurosport: “Sasha has reached the final – and anything can happen there. He can win Roland Garros, I strongly believe in that and I hope he succeeds.”
Nor the king of pottery Raphael Nadal Spain is still ranked first in the world Novak Djokovic He went from the semi-tournament played by Zverev to the competition – he could only face the best favorites in the final. Hamburg’s qualifiers await in the first two rounds, and in the quarter-finals he could meet his friend and US Open final opponent Dominic Thiem again. But as quick as Zverev’s brother Misha may seem, he also urges you to take task after task seriously.
Alexander Zverev believes in his chance
“If the matches in the first and second rounds are really easy, you might get a big part after that,” he said. “This difference sometimes is not easy to deal with, especially in such a big tournament,” but stressed: “If you play tennis well, It doesn’t matter if the draw is easy or difficult, he will enter week two and go really far.
Alexander Zverev himself also mentioned earlier that he felt his chance of winning the much-anticipated first major title. “I think I have chances this year,” Zverev said on Sportschau’s Olympic podcast. “I still think Nadal will be the favorite in this tournament. But of course, I’ve been playing well lately.” And the experts might also have more than usual on their list.
The tournament victories in Acapulco and especially the Masters in Madrid made a huge impression. The 24-year-old has three stars with Stefanos Tsitsipas, Tim and clutch master Nadal, which is listed ahead of him. Zverev can beat the big boys – but not yet in the Grand Slam tournament.
There is still no success over the top 10 players for the service giant in the major corporations, so far there has always been a little missing, as in the defeat in the 2020 US Open Final against Tim. “The top 10 players play a little bit better at Grand Slam. He may have lacked experience in the past,” said Eurosport expert Boris Becker.
The narrow defeat in New York also pushed Zverev. “I want more now. I also think I’m a better tennis player now. I’ll do everything I can to give myself this chance again,” he said.
