Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem share very friendly exchange on Instagram

Alexander Zverev says he is looking forward to teaming up with Dominic Thiem at the World Tennis League. Between December 19-24, the inaugural World Tennis League edition will take place in Dubai. Zverev, who hasn't played since the French Open, is expected to play.

There will be four teams as The Hawks will be represented by Zverev, Thiem, Elena Rybakina and Anett Kontaveit. On Instagram, Zverev and Thiem engaged in very a friendly exchange. "Can't wait to be on the same side of the net, @domithiem, @worldtennisleague.

#hawks," Zverev captioned his Instagram Story. Thiem shared Zverev's Instagram Story with a caption: "It has been a long time! Glad to have you back on the court! Let's rock this together. Who you are gonna play mixed with?" Zverev then shared Thiem's Instagram story and asked: "Who is gonna put with me? @lenarybakina, @anett_kontaveit?"

Zverev is ramping up his preparations

Recently, Zverev returned to the practice court.

Slowly. Zverev is improving the intensity of his practices. But most importantly, his body has responded well and he is not feeling any pain. “We were able to train last week. On Monday, we were even able to play a little longer.

So far he's pain-free and feels good. He just needs a few matches before the big season. Since the great match against Nadal - unfortunately with a bitter end - he has not been able to play any games. That is why we signed up for a couple of exhibition tournaments.

Training sets at home without an audience are just something different. So you have to be on the court, against a top player, with ball boys and referees to feel the adrenaline again. What do you do when the score is 30-30? How do you behave on the second serve? You just have to test that again.

Just like your foot. In Australia, he wants to start at the United Cup. Of course, he doesn't miss that," Mischa Zverev told Eurosport Germany.
