Alexander Zverev's Asian Swing has not been very good. The World No. 4 won one match in Shenzhen, reached Beijing semifinals and in Shanghai, the biggest event of this swing, he lost to Juan Martin del Potro by 3-6 7-6 6-4 in the third round.

'I think he played a great match, maybe one of the best of the season', Zverev recognized in press conference. 'I think we both played pretty well from the baseline. I don't know what I could have done better, but for me, in my eyes it's impossible to lose a match where I get broken one time and I still lose it except if you play against Isner or Karlovic, someone like that.

In my eyes I did a horrible job maybe returning or getting the points going on his serve. But apart from that, I think from the baseline and me serving, I think I did well. I had -- you know, the game that he broke me, I was up 40-15 or 40-Love on my serve.

I was just unfocused there. I'm a bit pissed off about that, because I feel like I played well and I feel like that's the upsetting part. I feel like I could have done great in this tournament if I get through this match.

But it's fine. I'm going to enjoy my time in Monaco.' Asked if he will play NextGen Finals in Milan, Zverev replied: 'This is something I'm going to talk about with my whole team, but London is obviously the bigger event out of those two.

If I have to choose one, it's going to be London.' ALSO READ: Alexander Zverev: 'I am sure the breakthrough will come' .
