In a press conference in the French Open, Alexander Zverev commented on his connection with fans. The German player said: "They see me a lot, I feel like. I feel like I spend the most time on court when I play a match. I guess they have got used to me a little bit now.
As I said, I always enjoy playing here, I always enjoyed coming here since I'm a junior. I guess people, even though I'm 22 years old, people have watched me for a while here, so it's a great thing and I hope the crowd will give me a lot of support throughout the whole tournament.
Generally, today, today was a good match. I think it could have been even easier than the score was. All in all, I think I'm starting to play really well." Speaking of his second-round loss to Zverev, Mikael Ymer said: "I did not have a good start and I felt like it happened too fast.
I had to believe in myself more. I am disappointed but at the same time happy for the effort I made. One of my goals was to give it all there. It was still a good tournament, I do not feel too angry now. When I will look back at it, I think I will bring many positives with myself.
I went through four rounds and that was also my first match against a top five player in a big Stadium. The next time I will go out there, I may be more focused on winning and not thinking too much about the circumstances."
