WILL 2018 BE HIS YEAR?
Germany’s top player, Alexander “SASCHA” Zverev, born in 1997, is predicted to be the future number one grand slam champion and the future of tennis. The former junior #1 is certainly capable.
Sascha’s success in reaching the Top Five is due in part, to his family. His parents both coach, and his older brother Mischa Zverev, born in 1987, has been on tour for years. Mischa went to the first edition of the Los Cabos ATP 250 in 2016 needing to qualify before losing to eventual champion Ivo Karlovic in three sets. As Sascha elevated his game to the Top 20, Mischa raised his too, reaching 25th last year.
Tall, yet agile Sascha is heralded the most likely to rise, after the BIG 4 – Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray. Last year Sascha won two Masters 1000 tournaments in Rome and Montreal, a feat apart from the BIG 4, which was last achieved in 2007.
Reaching a career high of #3 in the world with his superb backhand, heavy serve and showing no weakness, Sascha has all the potential to get to #1.
Viel Glück Sascha!
