Alexander Zverev ‘thinks he’s mustard’ reveals Wimbledon seed

German star Alexander Zverev has got the attitude and the ability to challenge the ‘Big Three’, according to a Wimbledon seed. 

British No 1 Dan Evans, who is seeded number 22 at Wimbledon, revealed that the World No 6 certainly doesn’t lack for confidence ahead of the grass-court Slam.

The 31-year-old also thinks the German has a chance to challenge the likes of Djokovic and Nadal, stating that both Stefanos Tsitsipas and Zverev are ‘ahead’ of the other Next Gen talent.

“Alexander Zverev has got the attitude, he thinks he’s mustard and that’s a big thing. Those two are a bit ahead of the others, in my opinion,” said Evans.

Zverev has been handed a generous draw at SW19, beginning his campaign against qualifier Tallon Griekspoor before a possible meeting against Tennys Sandgren.

Despite possessing a game suitable for the grass courts with a big first serve and crunching groundstrokes, the German is yet to get past the fourth round at Wimbledon, a feat he achieved in 2017.
