Tommy Haas: Pretty great what Alexander Zverev has already accomplished

Former world No. 2 Tommy Haas believes Alexander Zverev has had a great so far and even if he retired now he could be glad with his achievements. 

Zverev, 24, has won 17 titles so far in his career and his career-high ranking saw him sitting at No. 3 in the world. 

Five of those 17 titles came at the Masters 1000 series and Zverev recently captured his maiden gold medal after beating Karen Khachanov in the Tokyo Olympics final. 

Zverev is the only player outside the Big-3 with at least five Masters titles. 

The only thing that Zverev is missing is a Grand Slam title. 

Last year, Zverev blew a two-set lead against Dominic Thiem in the US Open final. 

“If you look, everything he’s accomplished is already pretty phenomenal. If he stopped his career now, it would like he had a really good one. It’s not easy for everyone. Really, the only thing he’s missing is a Grand Slam title,” Haas said of Zverev during his appearance on Tennis Channel. 

Zverev thrilled with his season

“To be honest, i have had one of the most incredible seasons a young guy has had in probably the last 10 years, winning the Olympics, two Masters series and four tournaments, and that is kind of forgotten a little bit. So once this situation is over, once this situation is done we can go back to how it was,” Zverev said in Indian Wells. 

Also, Zverev claimed he’s that the ATP have launched an investigation into his domestic abuse claims. 

“To be honest it’s very difficult in my situation because a lot of the time the man is not really believed. I have proven that I’m innocent in a lot of different ways and I think now with this investigation which is finally happening, I hope that this can be done and dusted, from a third individual party and then we can move on with everything else,” Zverev said in Indian Wells.
