I will definitely try to encourage him. towards this choice and above all I would like Federer to play in a stadium without any audience limitation. I don't know if my words will have an impact but I will try to the end. It is difficult to guarantee, but we have already talked to the players and they are enthusiastic.
If they allow it, we want to look to 2021 as a new beginning."
The bests and the worsts from the US Open 2020 day 10
Martina Navratilova recently criticized Alexander Zverev, stating that with her style of play she would never have defeated the Big Three, but neither would Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev, considered by the former champion as clearly superior.
Zverev reacted to these words and underlined in the conference: "Maybe I should double check my record against Federer, maybe he should review that I have beaten both Federer and Novak Djokovic several times and also in big events.
At the moment I am in the semifinals and be able to win. without even playing your best is more important than anything else. At the moment, although we're talking about a champion of several Grand Slam titles, her opinion doesn't interest me.
" Ashleigh Barty officially declared on her Instagram profile that she will not participate in the next edition of Roland Garros which will be staged from 21 September to 11 October. Her decision is difficult due to the fact that the Australian is the reigning champion of the tournament and in normal conditions she would have played her best tennis to defend her slam won last year right here in Paris. Barty will likely be back on the Tour starting next season.
