It was quite a shocking moment when Alexander Zverev decided to part ways with his coach, David Ferrer. What really astonished the fans was that the decision came right before the Australian Open 2021. The two were really close together and were enjoying each other’s company. However, fans will no longer see the pair working together.
Recently, tennis legend and Novak Djokovic’s former coach, Boris Becker, reacted on the issue. He highlighted that Alexander Zverev and David Ferrer had great chemistry, and it is a shame that they have parted ways.
“I think it’s a shame that Ferrer no longer trains him. The two seem to have found a good chemistry, which is shown by their success on the field,” said Becker in a recent interview.

The legend reflected that two enjoyed great success on the field as well. He also said that Zverev suffered a lot personally last year, but that would help him in growing up.
“A lot has happened for Sascha in the last year, both athletically and privately. Sporty it was maybe his best, privately maybe the most difficult. That’s what life is called growing up,” added the former World No.1.
Becker emphasized that Zverev had always wanted a super coach in recent years. He mentioned that coaches were really important for him, and even his father had been doing a great job for him there.
“It is not without reason that Zverev has wanted a super coach in recent years. The coaches are very important. Father Zverev, of course, knows tennis inside out,” concluded Becker.
Becker firmly believes that Zverev’s father knows a lot about tennis and will continue to support him. However, he made his stance clear that he should not have parted ways with David Ferrer.
Zverev will begin his 2021 campaign soon at the ATP Cup 2021. After that, he’ll be playing at the Australian Open 2021 where he’ll be eyeing his first Grand Slam title. Will Zverev be able to win his maiden Grand Slam title in Melbourne this year without having Ferrer in his team?
