He can’t stand the tennis court right now, but still achieves his career-best world ranking.
In the ranking published on Monday, our tennis star Alexander Zverev (25) is in second place. Only Daniil Medvedev (26/Russia) is still ahead of Zverev.
How does this work?
Novak Djokovic (35/Serbia), first No 1, now only has 2000 points for a French Open win in 2021 as last year’s second Grand Slam tournament took place a week later. Djokovic was eliminated in the quarter-finals against eventual winner Rafael Nadal (36/Spain) in 2022.
Bitter for Zverev: After amputating all of his right leg against Nadal in the semi-finals of the French Open, he would hardly be happy with the success.
Because it’s clear: After a successful operation, Zverev has the longest injury break of his career and will definitely miss the Grand Slam tournament at Wimbledon (June 27 to July 10).
With an optimal healing process, he can look forward to returning to the US Open (August 29 to September 11), the fourth Grand Slam tournament of the year.
Delight from the German point of view: Oscar Otte (28) is 51st after reaching the semi-finals at the ATP tournament in Stuttgart – better than ever.
