a New Worry in the case of Germany, tennis star Alexander Zverev: Four days before the start of the Australian Open in Melbourne (from 14. January) twisted in the world, ranking fourth in a hardness test with the left foot and the match broke off against Australia’s Marc Polmans. Earlier, the 21-Year-old had his Start at the Invitational tournament in Adelaide because of hamstring problems canceled.

The strain seemed to have Zverev on Thursday cured. In front of 500 spectators in the Margaret Court Arena, Hamburg won a set against Australian Jason Kubler (ATP no. 131) with 6:2 and led against Polmans (ATP no. 180) 4:1, before he stumbles to the ground line. After a short treatment break Zverev was slightly limping from the place. How much the injury is limiting or whether you even Start to Melbourne is at risk against the Slovenians Aljaz Bedene, it will turn out. Also Angelique Kerber gets it to do with a Slovenian. The Wimbledon champion meets Polona Hercog.

Zverev had achieved in the first week of the season, together with Angelique Kerber (Kiel), the Hopman Cup final in Perth, and there, against the Swiss Duo Belinda Bencic/Roger Federer with 1:2 lost. After he was injured in Adelaide in Training easily on the thigh, he traveled further on to Melbourne. There Zverev was eliminated at the Australian Open in 2017 and 2018, respectively, in the third round. His best result at a Grand Slam tournament in the quarter-finals at the French Open in 2018.
