Alexander Zverev still has time to win a Grand Slam says, Haas

Zverev, Six Sports

Former German tennis star Tommy Haas says that his compatriot Alexander Zverev still has time to win a Grand Slam. The 25-year-old star currently finds himself in the 2nd spot in the ATP rankings.

Zverev suffered from torn ligaments in his right ankle during his semifinal match against Rafa Nadal. The player was doing well against the 13-time champion 7-6,6-6 when the player slipped and Rafa was given a walkover.

Zverev entered the top 3 in 2017 and everyone’s expectations increased. But unfortunately, since then, Zverev has reached in only a single Grand Slam final in US Open. In 2020, he was up against Dominic Thiem. The crowd definitely expected him to lift the title before the german blew up a two-set lead. Afterward, Dominic Thiem lifted his maiden Grand Slam title by defeating Sascha 6-2,6-4,4-6,3-6,6-7.

“Suddenly you’re in your late 20s and still don’t have a title, but I wouldn’t bet against Zverev under any circumstances,”

Haas told Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

“After torn ligaments in the semifinals of the French Open, Zverev has just had to take a longer break for the first time. After that you have to regain your confidence and strength. However, he has a good environment and I’m sure he won’t have to wait long before he comes back to the top of the world.”

On the professional front, Zverev has updated his fans about his comeback. He said that he doesn’t need crutches and that he has returned to the gym. All this preparation is for the US Open and his team is working really hard to make the comeback possible. The tournament will start from 29th August.
