Karbacher 'Sascha Zverev Has Potential to Win Grand Slams & Become World No. 1'

Former German Davis Cup player Bernd Karbacher says he believes German No. 1 player Alexander Zverev would be able to win Grand Slams and become number one in the world in the future. According to Sueddeutsche, Karbacher says, "He (Zverev) has so much potential and, above all, he still has potential upwards.

If he develops the game a little bit forward, I see no reason why he shouldn't win Grand Slams and become number one in the world." Karbacher was ranked in the Top 30 in the world in the 1990s. Zverev is 22 years old and currently ranked No.

7 in the world. He has been as high as No. 3 in the world rankings after winning the season ending ATP Finals in 2018. The German reached his first ever Grand Slam semi-final tournament at the Australian Open in Melbourne. Zverev is not part of the German Davis Cup team that takes on Belarus in Dusseldorf on March 6 & & this weekend as he has chosen to focus playing on the Indian Wells & Miami tournaments in the United States.

A win against Belarus would secure a place for Germany in the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid in November. Karbacher peaked at No. 22 in the world rankings in 1995 and his career-high doubles ranking was world No. 163, achieved in June 1994.

During his career, he won two singles titles, Cologne in 1992 and the Swedish Open in Båstad in 1994 and twice reached the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam event - the 1994 US Open and the 1996 French Open. He also reached the semifinals of the 1993 Hamburg Masters and reached the finals of Indianapolis in 1995 after defeating Pete Sampras. He retired from professional tennis in 2000.
