Alexander Zverev shares positive update ahead of US Open series

German tennis star Alexander Zverev has shared a positive update to his fans as he has posted a video in which he can be seen walking without crutches.

A month and a half ago at the French Open, Zverev sustained a bad ankle injury during the Rafael Nadal match and started crying in pain.

After the match, the scans revealed Zverev tore several ligaments in his ankle and was forced to miss the entire grass season, including Wimbledon. However, the most important thing is that Zverev is seemingly doing well in his recovery.

Zverev has been signed up for the upcoming Masters events in Montreal and Cincinnati. Even though there is no guarantee that Zverev will play at either of those two Masters events, it's positive to see him being able to walk without crutches.

Zverev hopes to play the US Open

When Zverev was asked to reflect on his horror injury sustained at the French Open, he revealed he literally heard his foot cracking. “I only remember three noises. Noises that sounded like something breaking in quick succession: crack, crack, crack, very quickly,” Zverev told Bild am Sonntag.

“Then I was in extreme pain, it was crazy. As if someone had shot my foot." Zverev is hoping to play the US Open but he will travel to the United States only if he feels he can play well there. "I won't be someone who plays after being ready for it for one second.

If I play the US Open then to win them and not for one or two rounds," Zverev noted. "I will only return if I have this form. I don't know whether it will be the US Open because I would have to play one or two tournaments beforehand. But I haven't written off New York."
