Alexander Zverev has hailed hailed Andy Murray’s former fitness guru Jez Green after his sensational comeback in the US Open semi-finals.

The German was trailing by two sets after a horrendous start to his semi-final against Pablo Carreno Busta on Friday.

However, he rallied to roar back to win 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 and book a place in his first ever Grand Slam final.

“At 3-6, 0-5, I was looking at the scoreboard, I thought I’ve got to do something,” Alexander Zverev said courtside.

“I’m lucky to be through. I feel OK, been working with Jez Green [Andy Murray’s former conditioner] the past couple of years and he’s done quite a good job with me.”

Despite his delight at coming through, Zverev admitted he was surprised at how poor he started the match.

“Down two sets to love, I couldn’t believe it,” Zverev said.

“I was supposed to be the favourite. I knew I had to come up with better tennis. But I’m through to my first grand slam final and that’s all that matters.

“Still one to go for me. I wasn’t winning many second serve points and had to be more aggressive. Can’t wait for the final.”
