The third racket of the world Alexander Zverev told how he took the defeat in the fourth round of the Australian Open.
“Everything is fine. I know I had a bad tournament, a bad two weeks. I set a goal to win the tournament and eventually become the first racket of the world. But I didn’t deserve it. Everything is simple. There is no pressure now, I have turned the page, that is why I am in Montpellier. I couldn’t be idle. I wanted to keep the pace of the tournament. I was going to play only in Acapulco, but I need to play after such a quick exit from the Australian Open, ”the tennis player Midi Libre quotes.
Zverev also spoke about his goals for the near future.
“I want to get back to where I was in the second half of 2021. I won four titles, lost only four matches. I want to move on quickly. In Australia, I felt a lot of pressure, everyone said that I could become the first racket of the world, and I was disappointed with my result, ”he added.
In the final of the Australian Open, Daniil Medvedev lost to Rafael Nadal (2:6, 6:7 (5:7), 6:4, 6:4, 7:5), who won his 21st Grand Slam.
