After winning in Madrid and in Cincinnati, Alexander Zverev came to Indian Wells with serious intentions to win his third Masters 1000 so far this season.
The German won the Gold in Tokyo, the title in Cincinnati and his streak he reached the semifinals of the US Open where Novak Djokovic put a brake on him only in the fifth set of a match to remember.
In this particular tournament, due to its relocation on the calendar, the number 4 of the world ranking did not skimp on comments regarding the high temperatures to which the protagonists are subjected: “Normally we play a little less hot here. We are not used to playing in this heat in Indian Wells. Conditions this year will be very different. I think we will all have to adjust to this. “
Zverev could only win five games throughout his career in the Californian desert (five appearances) and this year he promises to go further even if the conditions do not favor him.
