“He’s very athletic for his size and I think he can do a lot more – especially on hard courts that are getting faster again. That should even suit his game,” concluded the 36-year-old coach.

Bajin also believed that Zverev used to show a lot of athleticism on the court. According to him, it certainly gave him a slight advantage against his opponents.

Fans are really excited to see Alexander Zverev at the Australian Open 2021. After performing consistently well at several ATP tournaments, fans hope that he would surely win his maiden Grand Slam title in the upcoming season.
