Alexander Zverev won the ATP 500 tournament in Acapulco after a great city. The German suffers, starts badly and finds himself one step away from the abyss but turns things upside down in the final against Stefanos Tsitsipas, thus winning his fourteenth career title.
It was about three years that Zverev hadn't beaten the Greek tennis player and he had even lost the last 5 previous ones. The match ended this time with the victory of the German in over two hours of play with the result of 6-4; 7-6.
At the end of the match, the German tennis player, number 6 in the world, shared his impressions and talked about his successes in recent years. Zverev is one of the main candidates to replace the Big Three and at the age of 24 the German seems to have the right maturity to look for better titles.
Alexander Zverev: "I'm the NextGen with the most titles on the Tour"
In the press conference, the German made an interesting reference to the other NextGens. Here are his words: "Thiem has more titles than me, but we must remember that he is 93 ', he is older while I am the NextGen player with more titles.
In the end I think about it and it is something I like, they are statistics but that is why we fight, go to the final and win. After a week like this I am really satisfied with the result, but my goal is always the same. I want to win the most important tournaments on the circuit, I want to win the Grand Slams.
I know they are really hard to reach and I am still at 0, but this is my real goal and I hope that such victories can help me achieve it." What must be done before arriving in a final? He said: "The most difficult thing is that in the locker room you are always with your opponent, always a great rival and you need the utmost respect and seriousness.
You need mental progress and you know that the final will be the toughest match of the week, the preparation certainly changes but usually I must say that I face every match with the utmost respect."
