1 who has lost only three matches since Wimbledon in July. 'The most important thing was him believing in the win. Especially after the 6-4, 6-1 loss in the round robin. It was not bad, but Sascha had to improve some things.
He had to use his backhand more often and be stronger mentally. It is crazy. This win may help him to play better in the big tournaments,' Zverev Sr. said. Meanwhile the six-time Grand Slam winner Boris Becker spoke about Alexander Zverev's ATP Finals success: 'As the head of German men's tennis I've been mentoring Sascha for the last two-and-a-half years so I have practised and travelled with him many times and know him very well.
He is a curious 21-year-old, he walks through life with an open mind and an open perspective.' Zverev will be clearly in the spotlight in 2019 as he starts season at the Hopman Cup in Perth prior to the Australian Open.
In February, he will play in Rotterdam and Acapulco, then Indian Wells and Miami in March. In 2018, the 21-year-old had a very busy clay-court season competing in Monte Carlo, Munich, Madrid, Rome and French Open, he hurt his groin and then lost early in Halle and Wimbledon.
