Surprisingly, the relationship between Alexander Zverev and Juan Carlos Ferrero ended. According to Marca, the German and the Spaniard split after Australian Open because they see tennis and life differently.
Ferrero wanted to make Zverev being professional not only on court but also outside of it in order to get even better results, but instead t, e world No. 5 has choosen to be free and to do what he thinks it's better for him.
Sascha will keep being coached by his father Alexander Sr. and could be helped by the seven-time Grand Slam winner Boris Becker, the head of German men's tennis who praised Zverev in the last months.
'In 2018 he will win a Grand Slam title', he said at last year's US Open. The project between Zverev and Ferrero seemed to be a long-term one, as the former world No. 1 had refused to work as the Spain's Davis Cup team captain leaving the place to Sergi Bruguera.
They had first got in touch at Madrid in May, then they made it official in July and in August Zverev won Washington and Montreal titles. From then he dropped his level, ending 2017 on a bad note and starting 2018 in a negative way, losing in the Australian Open third round and Rotterdam Open second round.
Zverev is already in Acapulco preparing for the Mexican Open, while Ferrero will return to work in his academy in Spain. ALSO READ: Revealed: Number of drug tests done by Federer, Nadal, Sharapova in 2017
