The Olympic Games will be important for me,” says the German. , who is also aware that the current situation demands help from everyone.
“2021 is a year for me in which I want to help people. In general, I want to help people in this time of pandemic and create my own foundation, in which I am working right now with Mischa (her brother)” , He says.
“All the stories I have had have not been pretty. But you have to learn from them and become a better person. That is what I am trying to do now. I try to make a tennis player more than just a tennis player,” Zverev continues in philosophical tone.

On the requests that Novak Djokovic made for quarantine, and that were denied by the Australian Government. Zverev is also responsible. “Those were the demands of other players who are in quarantine. We were all in a group chat. Novak was there as leader and number one in the world and sent the letter. It was not his own letter, it was the points that others were asking for. players. He was once again shown as the bad guy in the movie, which is not true, because he was just standing up for the others, “says Zverev.
