German Alexander Zverev is a promising player in the ATP Tour. He reached his maiden Grand Slam final at the last year’s US Open while claiming a Gold Medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games this year. The 24-year-old has won five Masters 1000 titles and is currently ranked No.4 in the world.
However, the two-time French Open finalist Alex Corretja foresees that Zverev can claim many more prominent titles, especially Grand Slam titles.
A few days before the US Open 2021 kicks off, tennis analysts have been revealing their predictions. The 47-year-old Spaniard said that Zverev would win more Grand Slam titles but was unsure about becoming a champion at New York this year.
“I think Sascha is now convinced that he can win the big titles. Before, I think he felt he was a very good player, but I think he still felt something was missing.”
“Zverev Is Controlling His Emotions More”, says Corretja
In 2021, Alexander Zverev won four titles, including Olympic Gold Medal. And he has a win-loss record of 38-11. Most recently, German clinched his fifth Masters 1000 title at the Western and Southern Open 2021.
The former World No. 2 continued, “Now he has got more experience. He is more relaxed with himself. And He is calmer. He is controlling his emotions more.”
“He knows his serve is now a big weapon, his forehand is way better now. And he has found a good balance between being aggressive and defensive and not just being passive.”
“I think he was ready to win a Slam last year. He was very close, but now I see that he thinks he is convinced he can do it.”
“Winning a gold gave him so much confidence but winning in Cincinnati proved that he is more mature right now. I’m not sure he will win in New York, but I really believe he won’t just win one major. He will win many more.”
The US Open 2021 runs from 30th August to 12th September in Flushing Meadows in New York City. Zverev will be seeded No.4 in the main draw.
