German Alexander Zverev commented on his entry into the US Open semi-final.
“I began to play more aggressively because at the beginning of the match my level clearly did not correspond to the quarterfinals of the “Grand Slam” tournament. I was losing 1/6, 2/4 in 28 minutes. I had to add. I said to myself, “Look, if you keep this up, you will quickly start losing 0:2 in sets. I had to act more stable and delay the jokes. That’s what I did.
The semifinal of “Helmet” is a great result. No representative of Germany in 25 years could not get to this stage. But I am not going to stop there.
Earlier I couldn’t show a good result on “Slams”, but the problem was in psychology, I wanted to win too much and tried too hard. I had to realize it.
Our whole career is built around the tournaments of “Big Helmet”. For their sake we start to play tennis. I had to learn how to cope with pressure and expectations. It took time, but now I’m in the semi-finals of the US Open and I intend to move on.
As for the disqualification of Djokovic, it was a shock for everyone. However, the young tennis players saw it as their chance. Now we need to focus on our game and work. It is impossible to say yet how he will become a champion, but many people are eager for this victory. The fight will be interesting,” the US Open press service quotes Zverev.
