Alexander Zverev continues to shine his way in the local tournament like the one in Cologne. As the COVID-19 situation is on rising throughout the world, the tournament is very different from others.
With no public and crowd cheering around, it was important for the German to defeat Lloyd Harris. Moreover, he did thrash him and got the match in his own hands. It was a three-set match of 6-4, 3-6, and 6-0.
After the match, he went on to the press conference and was asked continuously about his relationship with David Ferrer. Spaniard became a coach to Alexander Zverev just a few months ago. Due to the pandemic, Ferrer didn’t join Alexander in the Cologne, which arose many speculations.
“We Talk on The Phone Every Day”: Alexander Zverev
However, the world number seven cleared all facts and talked about why David couldn’t join him in the recent statements.
“My relationship with David is tranquil. We talk on the phone every day and make all decisions together. He is not here in Cologne, but then he will join my team for a week of training.” Alexander Zverev told the media. When asked about David’s involvement, he said, “He will be with me in Paris and at the ATP finals.”
Although he was also asked whether the distance between the coach and player costs them much, starting with a unique Australia Open, he said, “We have to see what will happen in Australia.”
He continued, “We must travel there in mid-December, as we have to do a two-week quarantine. That is a long time, and I know that David has a family. We will talk and decide later.” It would be interesting to see the duo together again!
