Alexander Zverev feels confident ahead of the match against Dominic Thiem on Tuesday. The German player is coming from three best-of-five-sets matches out of four matches played so far, but he said: 'I'm not concerned.
Mental, definitely not, because, you know, I'm in the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam. If you're mentally fatigued, then something is wrong with you. Physically, obviously it's not easy to play, you know, back to back to back five-set matches, but I will manage it somehow.
I will do everything I can to recover, as I said after the last match. I will make sure to be ready in two days' time.' Speaking about the code violation call he received during the fourth set in his fourth round against Karen Khachanov, Zverev stated: 'I thought it was a bit ridiculous, to be honest, because I was on the other side of the court.
I was, you know, breathing and looking towards the fans, and I hear, in the back of my head, I hear, you know, a code violation. I thought he did something. I was, like, I turned around. He was, like, it's for me. Well, I'm on the other side of the court.
I don't think my dad or anybody in my box can show me or would say something that I would hear inside that big stadium. So for me, it was nonsense.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer asks for privacy, wants to protect his children
