The tennis players around the globe prepare for the upcoming major tournament in the sporting capital of Australia, Melbourne. The prominent tennis face, Alexander Zverev had an illustrious 2018 season where he reached the last eight at the Roland Garros. The German lad captured his third Masters 1000 crown in Madrid. Predominantly, Zverev ’s performance in London in 2018 awestruck the tennis audience as he defeated Federer and Djokovic to claim his first ATP World Tour Finals title. This year he began his season in the best possible ways he could.

The German lad represented Germany in the Hopman Cup, earlier this month and eventually landed up surrendering to Switzerland in a tough final match, where his team squandered a championship point. After the Hopman Cup, Zverev travelled to Adelaide where he had to take on Borna Coric in the World Tennis Challenge. Due to a prevailing ham-string injury compelled Zverev to turn down the match. He later packed his bags for Melbourne and began training on the Margaret Court Arena. During the practice sessions over there, Zverev happens to twist his leg.

The 21-year-old, Zverev recently reported about his swollen ankle. “The ankle is fine. It’s just a little bit swollen. I didn’t actually twist it. I just kind of went over it a little bit,” Zverev informed. “You know, actually what happened was a bone pushed against another bone. There was, like, inflammation between those two bones. I’m fine. I’m going to play with the tape. It’s just a little bit uncomfortable, but it’s nothing that can get worse or anything like that. I’m actually quite relaxed about it.”

The German tennis ace, Zverev has never been beyond the third round at the Australian Open. The last year and the year before, he surrendered to Rafael Nadal and Hyeon Chung in the third round. This season he looks forward to ameliorating his performance in Melbourne and probably reach the second week of the Melbourne major.
