The ATP Cup is a team event that is going to host its inaugural edition in 2020 across 3 venues in Australia. Ahead of the event, a video was released on Twitter which Alexander Zverev and Boris Becker talking about Team Germany.
In the video, Alexander Zverev and Boris Becker talking about how short the shorts were in Boris Becker’s time. To this video, Adidas replied to Alexander Zverev,“You want shorter shorts? Just say the word.” Boris Becker appreciated this comment.
Alexander Zverev did not have the best year in 2019 winning only one title at the Geneva Open. He will definitely not be happy especially when he looks at how he did in 2018. That year, he won a Masters title at Madrid and he won the ATP Finals.
He will be looking to do well in 2020 where he will try to pick up his first Grand Slam. In the last 3 years all the Grand Slams have been won by the ‘Big Three’ and everyone has been wondering when will the NextGen take over tennis.
The 2020 ATP Cup provides the perfect warm-up to the first Grand Slam of the year – The Australian Open. Since it is also played in Australia, it simulates the conditions of Australian Open it is probably the best way to warm up for the first Grand Slam of the year.
The ATP Cup is the first team event by the ATP since The World Team Cup which stopped in 2012. It will be played between 24 nations who will play ties of two singles matches and one doubles match. The finals of the tournament will be held at Sydney.
The NextGen players such as Alexander Zverev will be looking to use this opportunity to prepare themselves for Australian Open. They will all be hoping to stop the win streak of the ‘Big Three’ at the Grand Slams.
While we are hoping for the NextGen will succeed, we will also be enjoying the ATP Cup which is definitely going to be an extremely fun-filled event.
