Biography

Overview

A determined attitude complements Zverev’s impressive game – a combination that has quickly made the charismatic German a fan favorite worldwide. Zverev has the composure and talent to match the hype too, boasting wins over Grand Slam champions Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in ATP finals. Making his third Laver Cup appearance for Team Europe, Zverev boasts an unbeaten singles record in the competition.

 Off court

Zverev’s father Alexander Snr, a former pro who represented Russia in Davis Cup, is his coach. Mother Irina is also a tennis coach and older brother Mischa competes on the ATP World Tour. The close-knit family travel together, along with Zverev’s dogs Lovik and Pop. ‘Sascha’, as he is known, grew up in Germany and idolized Roger Federer.

 Career

A former world No.1 junior, Zverev broke into the world’s top 100 at age 18 in 2015 and made his top-20 debut a year later. He is now a three-time ATP Masters 1000 champion and won his biggest career title at the ATP Finals in 2018, becoming the youngest champion since his final opponent Novak Djokovic a decade earlier.
