Zverev satisfied with comeback year – Olympics a big goal

The tennis year is over for Alexander Zverev. Despite two wins at the ATP Finals, he didn’t make it to the semi-finals. Nevertheless, the conclusion is positive

Despite missing out on a place in the semi-finals at the ATP Finals in Turin, Alexander Zverev has summed up his comeback year with satisfaction. “Of course I’m disappointed that I didn’t make it any further,” said Zverev after the meaningless 6:4, 6:4 against the Russian Andrei Rublev in the last group match.

“But you have to look at the bigger picture. To be back in the top 8 after such an injury, to be here at the ATP Finals, is a success in itself. I’m happy about that,” said the German tennis pro, who will finish the year in seventh place.

“Olympia a huge motivation “

Zverev had to take a break for more than six months in 2022 due to a serious foot injury. After initial difficulties, the Hamburg-born player improved more and more. “The longer the season lasted, the better I started to play tennis. For me, that’s also something where I’ve seen it get better and better and better,” said Zverev. “I’m motivated to see what next year brings. “

In addition to the four Grand Slam tournaments, the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris are also a major focus. “The Olympics are a huge motivation for me,” said Zverev, who won gold in Tokyo in 2021. “I love playing for Germany. It’s just a great honor for me to be there, to be in the village,” said Zverev, who had also put himself forward as a flag bearer. “It’s also a huge topic for me, as it is for every athlete,” said Zverev, who will first fly to the Maldives on vacation next week.
