I will keep trying to be present at the US Open, even if it is very, very fair.
“Obviously, I will still try to be present at the US Open, even if it is very, very fair,” Zverev explained at a press conference in Hamburg, when the last Grand Slam of the season begins in just over two weeks in New York.
I eat very late, Zverev hopes to return to the courts for the group stage of the Davis Cup in his hometown of Hamburg, from September 13 to 18, against France (August 14), Belgium (August 16) and Australia (August 18).
In the semi-finals of Roland Garros on June 3, the 25-year-old German was forced to retire before the deciding game of the second set against Spaniard Rafael Nadal, after an epic battle of more than three hours of play.
In a bad support, Zverev’s right ankle was completely sprainedwhich forced the player to leave the Philippe-Chatrier court in a wheelchair and returned minutes later on crutches and in tears to confirm his indisposition (7-6 (10/8), 6-6).
Medical examination revealed a rupture of the three external ligaments of the ankle right, an injury that required an operation and a longer period of rehabilitation.
Two months after his surgery, Zverev was able to play tennis again on Sunday without pain, by his own admission, but without putting too much pressure on his ailing foot.
