Alexander Zverev: ‘I think I can win big tournaments with the coaching staff I have’

Alexander Zverev is feeling positive about his new family coaching set up and believes it can lead to big tennis success.

The current World number seven had a turbulent 2020, with professional success on court, reaching the semi-finals of the the Australian Open, the final of the US Open and Paris Masters and winning two consecutive ATP 250 Titles in Cologne.

But off court, there was controversy in his personal life with accusations from an ex-girlfriend which Zverev strongly denied.

The end of the year saw a shock announcement that the German had split with his coach David Ferrer with no reasons given for the break.

Zverev has found it difficult to develop a long-term stable partnership with a coach over the last few years, with both Juan Carlos Ferrero and Ivan Lendl citing professional and personal differences.

But the partnership with Ferrer seemed to be working well and it seems that Zverev was surprised as anyone about the news, but is feeling positive about his new team.

“I was very surprised with the decision in a way, but I need to respect the reasons,” Zverev explained.

“I don’t think it makes sense for me to look for anyone new during COVID-19 either. I think we left everything open with David.

“I think with my dad and with my brother more involved now, I have a great coaching team.

“I think I can win big tournaments with that coaching staff that I have.”
