Alexander Zverev Cincinnati Open 2021 Djokovic

Alexander Zverev says “there’s a reason only I’ve won multiple masters this year” as he highlights unique achievement

Olympic gold medallist Alexander Zverev feels he has enjoyed a prosperous year and thinks he has “played some good tennis.”

The World number four has won a total of five titles during the 2021 season, bringing his career total up to 18 titles.

This season, Zverev has won two ATP 1000 events at the Cincinnati Masters and the Madrid Open, Olympic gold for Germany at the rescheduled 2020 Tokyo Olympics and two ATP 500 tournaments in the Vienna Open and the Acapulco Open.

Such tournament victories have seen the German qualify for the ATP Finals in Turin, Italy after being ranked fourth in the world.

Zverev is also the only player to have won two Masters titles this season as Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Rafael Nadal, Hubert Hurkacz and Cameron Norrie all claimed the other six.

In a press conference prior to the upcoming ATP Finals, Zverev feels he has enjoyed a very good year, telling reporters “I think I’ve played good tennis this year.

“There is a reason why I won five tournaments, there is a reason why I’m the only person that won multiple Masters this year. Also at the Olympics I have a gold medal.

“I do look forward to this week, to the tournament (the ATP Finals). I want to do well, and I want to win matches here, that’s for sure.”

Zverev has been placed in the Red group for the ATP Finals in Italy with defending champion and World number two Daniil Medvedev, home competitor Matteo Berrettini and World number nine Hubert Hurkacz.
