Surely the end of a long season conspires with the ATP Finals. The absences of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are an example of this. However, on Media Day in Turin, it became known that two of the main animators of the competition are not 100% physically. These are the cases of Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The German confessed to being very tired and is in Italy only because of the importance of the tournament. In fact, he gave up playing the Davis Cup with Germany: “I am very tired. I think all the players on the circuit are exhausted after such a long season we have had. If you play at a very high level of tennis for so many months and have won many games, it is normal that at this time of year you are very tired. “
Even, eThe Greek withdrew from Paris-Bercy last week in his debut match against Alexei Popyrin and left more doubts than certainties: “In Paris it was very painful for me to disappoint the fans and not be able to finish that match. But he had to. These last days I have been training with a little pain, but currently I feel much better than five or six days ago. I hope that for my debut those problems have disappeared and I can offer my best version “.
