‘I have beaten all the great players here,’ declares Alexander Zverev ahead of ATP Finals

Alexander Zverev says his confidence is high for the ATP Finals because of his fine record in the competition over the years. 

Zverev won the title in 2018, and he has beaten all three of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic at the O2.

And that, he says, means he has headed to London with absolutely no fear.

“I have beaten all the three great players here with Rafa, Novak and Roger so this is something that will stand for me,” Zverev said.” It’s something I am very proud of.

“I think the memory of me winning in 2018 will stay forever. Beating Federer in the semi-finals and Djokovic in the final was a very special thing for me.

The ATP Finals are unique in tennis in that it begins with a round robin format and, a spate of injuries aside, every player you face is in the top ten.

Zverev relishes that level of competition though, and he says there is no room for a single bad performance.

“I think it’s one of the toughest tournaments to win,” he added. “From the first match you’re playing a top eight player and there is nowhere else in the world you are going to do that.

“You have to play the best tennis that you can from the get-go. You really have to be focused and ready.”
