Alexander Zverev is one of the five Top 10 of the ATP who will be at the Tokyo Olympics. German appears as one of the main threats to Novak Djokovic, the clear favorite to stay with the Gold.
“To defeat a player like Djokovic you have to do things that very few players can do. You have to outrun Nole and dominate him. I see myself as someone who can have a chance to beat him. If you play like him, you will lose. You have to play at a high level and hope that he is not successful that day. I think the best players always have that pressure. It is always positive to feel that way. If you get good results in tournaments of this type, you know 100% that you are one of the best tennis players of the moment, “the US Open 2020 finalist told Sportschau in statements translated into Spanish by Punto de Break.
On his chances to reach a medal, Zverev noted: “I’m going to Tokyo so I can compete for a medal for Germany. That does not mean at all that I will win, but it is true that I see myself as one of the great favorites to be victorious. It will be necessary to be concentrated in each party in order to avoid scares “.
Regarding the possibility of adding mixed doubles, Sascha added: “We are talking about it but we have not decided anything yet. The participants for the mixed doubles will be decided in the next few days. It was a shame Angelique Kerber’s withdrawal due to injury. Let’s hope May I recover as quickly as possible. I love Germany. I have always loved playing for my country. It is even more emotional to know that everyone is cheering at home. “
