These are images that are great to see. Injured since his semifinal at Roland Garros when he was fighting a titanic battle against Rafael Nadal, Alexander Zverev is once again able to play. Forced to stop his season prematurely, the German, out of the Top 10 since, has quietly resumed the competition this Thursday with an exhibition in Saudi Arabia from 8 to 10 December, the Diriyah Tennis Cup. A tournament where he was able to win against Dominic Thiem before losing against Daniil Medvedev. Before that, Sascha spoke to Eurosport.
“These last seven months have not been an easy time for me, I missed everything, the tour, the tournaments, the interviews, everything. I’m just happy to be back on the courts, in this atmosphere, I’m happy, I hope things will start going well for me again. The injury taught me to be more patient, to appreciate the little things more. When I first walked again, I was happy as a kid. It was like winning one of the biggest tournaments in the world. The things you can do in your daily life become special all of a sudden, that’s the main change I felt since my injury. I don’t have any goals, I just want to have fun. It’s a process, I want to get back to 100%. You don’t play as well as before when you come back from injury, it doesn’t work like that. I hope to get back to the form I was in last year or maybe even better. As long as my foot is healthy, I think I’ll get my form back.”
