Alexander Zverev finds himself in a situation he has not known since 2017… Injured and absent from tournaments since the French Open, the German has plummeted in the rankings since Monday. Semi-finalist of the Rolex Paris Masters 2021, he lost his 360 points from Bercy but not only. The points from the ATP Finals also disappeared on Monday. Zverev, the title holder, lost 1,300 points, for a total of 1,660 points. A new total of points that leads him to the 12th place.
Zverev out of the Top 10 is an event. The former world number 2 was part of the Top 10 since July 2017. According to the latest information, including from his brother Mischa, Alexander is doing better and will play again in exhibition at the end of the year. Just before Christmas, from December 19 to 24, he will play the World Tennis League in Dubai, in the Coca-Cola Arena.
“We were able to practice last week. On Monday, we were even able to play a little longer,” said his brother. “So far, he is not in pain and feels good. The practice rounds at home without a crowd are just different. So you have to be on the court, against a top player, with ball boys and referees to feel the adrenaline again. He just needs a few matches before the big season. Since the big match against Nadal, he hasn’t been able to play any matches. That’s why we signed up for a few exhibition tournaments.”
