Alexander Zverev was asked who will be his main young rivals in the future. The Hamburg native replied: "Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime will be Grand Slam winners. Both of them. I've been saying that about Denis for two years already, and I'm sure that Felix will also be a Grand Slam winner.
They are not only good; they are very good. They will be very dangerous. Both of them play aggressively. Both of them actually learnt the game well: they know what to do and when to do it, they know when to come forward, when to slice, when to hit a different shot.
I'm impressed by them. It's going to become a great rivalry because I think that I'll also be a Grand Slam winner. I don't want to sound arrogant but it's important to have confidence in yourself. I believe I can do it."
On how he plays doubles with Mischa, the world No. 5 added: "Let's say that we both have a different role: him at the net and me on the baseline. I tell him some stuff in return games. The only time I got mad at him was when I had the feeling he didn't want to play.
Dude, why did you step onto the court? In Acapulco we beat very good teams, especially the Bryan brothers, which is always very special. Sharing such an emotion with someone of your family, your big brother, is incredible."
