Alexander Zverev: My mother gave me the technique I have today

In an interview to Tennis Channel, Alexander Zverev commented on his parents' impact on his career. "My mom was probably the one who really gave me the technique until I was 13, 14 years old, my dad was travelling with Mischa more and my mum was basically my main coach.

She was the one who was very technical in my family, she was the one who wanted the perfect shot. My fluent game is thank to her and I always say that my dad is one of the greatest coaches of all time because he has two completely different sons being built from nothing to two top 30 players, one is a lefty serve and volleyer, one is a righty baseline grinding type player, so you have to practice different game styles and things," said the 21-year-old.

On winning his first career-title at last year's Eastbourne, Mischa said: "It's something I always wanted to achieve before I would end my career. Having the cast on my arm a few years ago, being ranked as low as 1,100, you are pretty far from achieving your goal and your dream, he was believing in himself but also in me and that also helped me to become young and just train hard and chasing my dreams.

When I achieved that goal when I think about (that) now I still get very emotional." The world no. 3 will play his next event in Marrakech making his first appearance there.
