Alexander Zverev: I’ll do whatever I can to win first Grand Slam in 2022

World No. 3 Alexander Zverev has made it clear that his biggest in 2022 will be winning a maiden Grand Slam title. 

Zverev, 24, captured his second ATP Finals title after beating Daniil Medvedev 6-4 6-4 in the final. 

Zverev finishes the season with two ATP 500 titles, two Masters 1000 titles and an ATP Finals title. 

Also, Zverev won his maiden Olympic gold this past summer at the Tokyo Olympics. 

This season, Zverev made the semifinals at the French Open and US Open. 

“Look, I’ve won on every level except for the Slams. It’s the only thing I’m missing and I’ll do whatever I can to change that next season. I’m already looking forward to 2022, because I know that I still have things to improve,” Zverev told Sport Klub. 

Zverev tipped to win a Grand Slam by Novak Djokovic 

On Saturday, Zverev beat Djokovic in the semifinal at the ATP Finals. 

After the loss, Djokovic tipped Zverev to soon become a Grand Slam champion. 

“Of course we want to win against each other, but there is that respect and appreciation for each other that is more important than winning or losing. That’s something that I always had with Sascha. I really appreciate that,” Djokovic said. “I wish him all the best. He’s a great guy, fantastic tennis player, I’m sure soon to be a Grand Slam champion.”

Djokovic and Zverev are big rivals but also friends off the court. 

“Sascha is also a friend off the court. We get along very well. Not easy to be very close obviously when you’re rivals, playing that much against each other on the biggest stage,” Djokovic said. “But we talk a lot about life, about a lot of different things. I’m always happy to share some of my experiences with him. We’ve always had a wonderful relationship.”
