Olympic gold medalist Alexander Zverev has revealed that he’ll avoid the current year’s Davis Cup finals, which will be held from 25 November to 5 December. The German intends to go on a get-away get-togethers possibly overwhelming season.
Alexander Zverev, positioned No. 5, had a prevailing effort at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, dropping just one set on the way to winning a gold award for his country. The German crushed World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the elimination rounds, prior to smacking to the side Russia’s Karen Khachanov in straight sets in the title match.
In the result of his triumph, Zverev guaranteed that triumphant gold for his country at the quadrennial occasion was maybe the “best thing you can accomplish in sport”. The 23-year-old, notwithstanding, doesn’t anticipate wearing the German tones for the Davis Cup.
The arrangement of the Davis Cup was changed without precedent for its 121-year history in 2019. The scoring was changed from best-of-five sets to best-of-three, and the quantity of matches in each tie was diminished from five to three.
Further changes were presented for this present year, generally striking of which was the relinquishment of the home-and-away arrangement for a ‘Finals’ week where the 18 best groups battle for the prize in three unique scenes – Madrid, Innsbruck and Turin.
Zverev, who has voiced his disappointment with the progressions previously, multiplied down on his position on Wednesday.
“Hopefully I will play this event in the future when it will switch back to the old format and with home fans,” Zverev added.
“I am human too and I need to go on holidays sometimes. We play from January to October. I won’t play in this mode in November,” Alexander Zverev
