“Grigor Dimitrov Almost Had a Fight With Nick Kyrgios” – Alexander Zverev

After making a dominant start in the season’s first match, unluckily Alexander Zverev couldn’t inch closer towards the victory. It was Alex De Minaur winning 4-6 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 on his home-soil at ATP Cup 2020. With Sascha’s double faults persisting in the new season a total of seven doubles faults led him nowhere.

Interestingly the volatile tennis player of ATP, Nick Kyrgios did push-ups every time when Alexander Zverev committed a double fault in the match. The German ace was oblivious about him doing push-ups. Sascha mentioned that during Laver Cup 2018 Krygios ended up exchanging blows with Team Europe’s Grigor Dimitrov for executing ‘Nick Kyrgios activities’. 

“No, I did not see that,” Zverev replied when asked about if he saw Kyrgios doing push-ups every time he double-faulted. “It’s Nick, it’s just what he does. He did it at Laver Cup as well. I know that Grigor almost had a fight with him and with Jack (Sock) in 2018. He can do whatever he wants.”

“I don’t care about it” – Alexander Zverev on Nick Kyrgios’ push-ups

Germany’s number one tennis player, Zverev was fine with Kyrgios doing pushups over his double faults. The act really doesn’t matter to him. “He wants to do push-ups it fine. As long as he doesn’t defend anybody or does Nick Kyrgios stuff which he sometimes does, I don’t care about it,” he added.

Zverev’s double fault stats from 2019

Last year World Number seven Alexander Zverev played 10 Grand Slam matches and committed a total of 131 double faults on the major courts. It was, unfortunately, the highest double fault record on the men’s tour. Besides that in the opening-round of Cincinnati Open, Zverev committed 20 double-faults in the match and that is almost equivalent to a set.

Next match for Sascha in Brisbane

The Germans will next take on the Greeks on Sunday on the Brisbane court. Alexander Zverev is drawn to play a match against Stefanos Tsitsipas, who earlier lost his opening match of the year to Denis Shapovalov at the ATP Cup 2020.
