Every Friday we will highlight the fitness of top players past and present. This week, strive to be a top player like Zverev.
Alexander Zverev is a good athlete and a talented tennis player. He may be only 20 years old but he has the potential to be a future world number 1. Zverev is well on his way to the top of the rankings. He is currently ranked 8 in the world and has already won 5 ATP titles.
Alexander is an aggressive baseliner with massive groundstrokes off of both sides. His serve continues to improve and is already a weapon. Zverev also moves especially well considering his size (6'6").
Alexander knows that he has only been on the tour for a few years and has a long way to go before he reaches the top of the sport. He also realizes that "physically the top players are on a different level to other players." But he is willing to put in the hard work necessary to be successful.
For the reasons mentioned above and more, Alexander Zverev is our Fitness Friday athlete.
