Through a video message, Alexander Zverev congratulated Roger Federer on winning his 100th career-title at the Dubai Championship. The German player, who faced the Swiss four times, said: "I don’t know if I have won 100 matches in my career but I wish you nothing but the best.
I wish you 100 more to come but not against me. You have won a few against me already so that is enough now. I wish you nothing but the best. What a great career and what a great person you are as well. This is just part of your legacy and you’re the greatest.
I wish you all the best You can have four of mine if you want but I don’t know if they will mean much to you." Nick Kyrgios added: “Congratulations on your 100th title. You are the greatest of all time my friend.
I hope you keep going and keep stealing those titles from everyone on the tour. You have my best wishes." Zverev is not doing very well. According to the German magazine Chip & Charge, the German player complained about throat issue and he asked for a spry.
"I rarely felt so bad in my like before this match", said Zverev who had previously lost the doubles match with his brother against Cabal / Farah. Zverev lost to Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3 6-2, he will now take some days off in order to get healed and compete at the Miami Open.
