Alexander Zverev confident of clinching Grand Slam glory after US Open disappointment

German star player Alexander Zverev said that it will be too early to think about what went well for him in recently concluded US Open 2020 as he was unable to outclass World Number 3 Dominic Thiem in a nail-biting final at the Arthur Ashe Court on Sunday.

He started brilliantly by winning two sets in the Grand Slam Final and was looking all set to dominate Thiem but the latter player broke his serve first time in the third set which changed the momentum of the game and took the game away from a German Tennis player.

After the loss, he admitted that Thiem started playing superbly after the third set and he started playing average tennis which cost him the match.

He started playing much better and I started playing much worse,” said Zverev, who also lost to Thiem in the Australian Open semi-final earlier this year.

He was asked from the reporters about the positives that he will take out from this mega event. To which he was quick to respond where he said “That question is probably two, three days too early to ask right now.”

He was in tears while accepting runners up trophy in post-match presentation and thanked his parents for their support as they could not travel with him as they both were tested positive for novel Coronavirus.

Unfortunately my dad and my mother got tested positive before the tournament and they couldn’t have gone with me. I miss them,” he said, pausing to compose himself.

I’m sure they’re sitting at home, even though I lost they’re pretty proud.

He later told reporters about the emotional speech he gave as it was because he was devastated from the loss and wanted to win the title at all cost.
