Alexander Zverev French Open 2020

Alexander Zverev a slight doubt for ATP Finals with thigh injury, says brother

Alexander Zverev is a slight injury doubt for the ATP Finals due to a thigh injury, his brother Mischa has revealed.

Zverev has been very active since the ATP Tour restarted following the enforced coronavirus suspension, but he has also been in sparkling form.

However, brother Mischa has told Sky Deutschland that Alexander picked up a thing complaint in the second of the Cologne events he won.

He, though, does not expect it to keep him out of the ATP Finals, where he has already travelled to with coach David Ferrer, as well as his father.

Alexander Zverev certainly looked like he physically waned in the Paris Masters final last week, which he ended up losing to Daniil Medvedev in three sets.

“I was tired at the end of the second set; I was dead,” Zverev admitted after the match.

“The third set was always going to be difficult for me. I had an extremely physical match against Mannarino, which wore me down a lot. I didn’t have quite the energy to finish it off.

“I knew that I had to win in two sets, and once I lost the second set, I knew it was going to be difficult, especially against Daniil, who is not somebody wild but very composed.

“He’s going to make you run for every point. Yeah, it was difficult at the end.”
