Alexander Zverev 'not pleased' about Kyrgios-Tsitsipas pairing

Alexander Zverev was not 'very pleased' in hearing that Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios played doubles in Washington together this week. The German did not want to speak too much about this news in a press conference in Hamburg.

Meanwhile, Judy Murray spoke about another Citi Open pairing, the one featuring Andy and Jamie: "When my kids were very small, I wanted them to enjoy sports the same way that I’d enjoyed sports. I’m a big believer in families that get involved in sports, it becomes a way of life if they start early and the parents play with them.

If you think about tennis, it’s a sport where you need somebody to play with, so the most obvious port of call for the young child starting out is going to be one of the parents, which is a reason why I run a lot of parent and child, and grandparent and child, workshops so the parents can help the children develop their skills at home, inexpensively or free and they have an immediate practice partner", said Judy.

"So, I think it’s a real advantage if the parents actually play a sport and get them involved in it. When my kids were small, I wasn’t a tennis coach, but I loved tennis, so I played a lot of ball sports with them.

I think they tried every single sport except skiing. I think it was the only thing that we didn’t try because we didn’t have mountains in Dunblane. But, yeah, I think it is really important that the parents encourage, get involved and learn as much as they can."
