Alexander Zverev says he finds no positives about his run to the French Open semi-final, and he doesn’t care if that sounds arrogant.
The German lost out to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the last four on Friday after coming back from two sets down.
It was his first French Open semi-final and would have been his second major final had he won it.
However, after the match he said he is no longer willing to go home happy unless he has a trophy with him.
“I’m not at the stage anymore where great matches that I’m satisfied with,” a visibly disgruntled Alexander Zverev told the press after the match.
“Was it a good match? Yeah. But, at the end of the day, I’m gonna fly home tomorrow. There’s nothing positive about that.”
“I don’t particularly care about semi-finals. It might sound bad in a way or it might sound arrogant, but I’m not trying to be arrogant, I’m just saying it how it is.
“I wouldn’t have cared about a final either, to be honest. I didn’t win the tournament, and Wimbledon is in two weeks time, I’m looking forward to that.”
