Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are still the guys to beat, says Zverev

Alexander Zverev believes Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will be the favorites starting the 2019 season. The German tries to stay with feet on the ground despite winning the ATP Finals title.

'Obviously they're still going to be the guys to beat at the big tournaments. I will hope', said Zverev. 'I mean, I will do everything I can to get better, to compete with them always. I feel like I'm doing that.

But still I have a lot of things to improve. I'm still very young. Hopefully next year I'll be able to play better tennis than I did this year, even though it's been a good year.' Zverev also reflected on Djokovic saying he hopes the German will surpass him in terms of achievements.

'Oh Jesus. I've won one of those. He won five. He's won, I don't know what, 148 titles more than me. Let's not go there for now. I hope I can do great. I mean, but just chill out a little bit', said Sascha. Speaking on ESPN, the former world No.

1 doubles player Patrick McEnroe said: 'Alexander Zverev has done it....the biggest title of his career....breaking the Djokovic serve four times.' Zverev will start the new season at the Hopman Cup in Perth playing alongside Angelique Kerber.
