Still with tournaments to play, no doubt, Alexander Zverev is one of the players of the year and not only because of his achievements on the court. Coronavirus and pregnancy through, the German was the protagonist of the tennis world also for his actions.
Confirming his paternity was not an easy thing. Brenda Patea, her former partner, announced it in an interview. But before that, a lot of water passed under the bridge. A lot of tennis and also the other.
With a very unpromising debut with three consecutive defeats at the all-new ATP Cup, Zverev didn’t hold back his pent-up anger.
However, quickly reached the semifinals of Australia in which he showed that he could become a Grand Slam champion.
In Acapulco and against Tommy Paul he lost surprisingly in the round of 16 being his last official pre-pandemic participation.
The arrival of Adria Tour he painted to be the ideal return to activity.
A couple of bad results added to the criticism They made him reflect.
Self-criticism was of little use and broke the rules, once again.
He came back with good tennis at Patrick Mouratogou’s new UTS.
But he fell for the points before Andy Murray in the first game in the New York bubble.
The final at the US Open with two sets of advantage they put him very close to the glory that he would take Dominic Thiem.
Roland Garros was a misstep characteristic of surface change.
The need for better led him to the hands of David Ferrer.
And in his land he stacked two consecutive hits. The second before Diego Schwartzman.
