The 2003 French Open champion, who won 16 titles during his career, has been working with Zverev and his father in the United States as they prepare for the Citi Open in Washington, D.C. later this month.
“Zverev is a different player, he has the manner of a champion," said Ferrero. "It's a challenge I'm keen to take on and do the best job I can."
20-year-old Zverev has made significant progress this year and he is ranked No.11 in the world. He won his first Masters title in Rome earlier this year – defeating Novak Djokovic in the final – and continued his fine form during the grass-court season.
The German reached the final of the Gerry Weber Open and he was defeated by Milos Raonic in five-sets at the fourth round stage of Wimbledon.
Zverev will be joined at the Citi Open by Dominic Thiem, Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic, Grigor Dimitrov, Nick Kyrgios, Gael Monfils and Juan Martin Del Potro.
