Paris (AP) – Alexander Zverev plays his best tennis at the end of the season. At the Masters 1000 tournament in Paris, the German number one will attack the Russian Daniil Medvedev for his third title in a row next Sunday (3 p.m. / Sky).
Recently, Zverev had won the two events in Cologne and thus qualified for the ATP final of the eight best professionals of the year in London from November 15th. “I just feel good on the field at the moment,” said Zverev after his impressive semi-final victory against Spanish number two Rafael Nadal.
Against the French Open champion, Zverev impressed with 6: 4, 7: 5 with a very concentrated and powerful performance from the start. Strong 37 winners and 15 aces, the 23-year-old hit number one seed Nadal to the ears and thus recorded the second victory in the seventh game with Majorcan perfection. “I am proud to have won against a player like Nadal and to be back in the final of a Masters tournament,” said Zverev. Boris Becker was the last German to succeed in Paris-Bercy 25 years ago.
Zverev seems to be able to hide that there is a lot in the media about his private life and the allegations of sexual assault by his ex-girlfriend Olga Sharipova on the field. “I’ve learned that there will always be people who don’t mean well to you. They want you to fall when you’re on top. It’s up to me not to let that happen,” Zverev said after his victory against Nadal. .
