ATP COVID vaccine

‘ATP Finals will be the last place where people are vulnerable to Covid,’ says Alexander Zverev

The ATP Finals will be completely safe, says Alexander Zverev, who has revealed some details of the expected bubble there.

Nearly a quarter of a million people attended the event last season but it will be played behind closed doors for it’s final edition in London due to coronavirus spikes in the UK.

Zverev, though, believes it will prove to be a very safe environment for the players and staff involved.

“We will stay in a hotel next to the stadium, which will be bolted,” Zverev said of the ATP Finals in London.

“I think this will be the last place, where people are vulnerable to the coronavirus disease.”

Zverev will head to the O2 in pretty good form. He reached the final of the US Open and backed that up with winning the title in Cologne last week.

“Although we didn’t have any fans inside the arena, I felt the support from home,” Zverev told reporters in Cologne.

“I had the feeling playing on home soil and I hope that many fans watched the final on TV.

“It is different and more difficult this year, as we played less tournaments than usual. I hope that I can keep it up like this.”
