He wants to celebrate his first title at the eighth attempt
Alexander Zverev will be attacking at the ATP tournament in Halle/Westphalia again next year – and wants to finally celebrate his first title at the eighth attempt.
“I’m eager to return to Halle, to one of my absolute favorite tournaments,” said the Olympic tennis champion when announcing his participation in the grass court tournament in June 2024.
“I’ve been in the final four times, twice in singles and twice in doubles. It’s about time I lifted the trophy,” said Zverev (26), who is currently recovering from his exhausting comeback season following a serious foot injury in the summer of 2022: “I was already so close to winning. I really want to take the final step now. “
However, this won’t be easy for the Hamburg native in 2024 either – the expected field of participants is a tough one: the newly crowned Davis Cup winner Jannik Sinner from Italy, shooting star of the past season, wants to compete, as does the world number three Daniil Medvedev, who is considered Zverev’s opponent of fear. Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas (ATP rank 6) has also announced his participation
