NextGen star Alexander Zverev is into another final! After a disappointing loss at the French Open, the German came into the ATP event in Cologne to play his best tennis. Clearly, he has been able to do that as he is in the 20th ATP Final of his career. It did not come easy as he had to battle against Davidovich Fokina. However, in the end, he came through 7-5 7-6.
Tomorrow, the World No. 7 will be playing the winner of the 2nd semi-final which is between Roberto Bautista Agut and Felix Auger-Aliassimme. They both are very tough opponents and that is why Zverev will be preparing very well. So far, he’s been playing very aggressive and when asked whether he will continue to use this strategy, he said,
“Depends on opponent how often I attempt at net. He’s someone who stands far behind the baseline after my sec. serve. So I have more time/ options to do that. I like this courtposition cause then I have the feeling that I have to act more offense”
Amazing Year For Alexander Zverev
2020 has been an amazing year for Alexander Zverev as he has achieved a lot. At the beginning of the year, the German reached his first-ever Grand Slam semi-final at the Australian Open. He then carried this great form into the US Open, where he reached his first-ever Major final. Sadly, he lost there to Dominic Thiem but it was a great achievement nonetheless.
Now, he has a chance to add to this amazing year by winning the ATP event in Cologne. It would be his 12th title and his first since the Geneva Open back in 2019. He definitely wants to win the title and hopefully, he will be able to achieve his goal.
