Germany’s best tennis player Alexander Zverev is not thinking of hiring Boris Becker as a new coach.
Zverev and the Spaniard David Ferrer had recently ended their successful collaboration because Ferrer wanted to spend more time with his family during the Corona pandemic.
“We have been talking to Boris for years. We have a very good contact. But this is not a topic for the next few months,”Zverev said in an interview with”Image on Sunday”about whether Becker was definitely no longer a topic. At the end of the last year, the three-time Wimbledon winner had withdrawn from his work as a German tennis boss and continues to work as a TV expert.
Zverev is now being trained again by his father, his older brother Mischa also deals with management matters. The 23-year-old world ranking seventh, who is currently preparing for the start of the season with the ATP Cup and the Australian Open in Melbourne despite quarantine, praised the collaboration with Ferrer.
“I loved David as a coach. Besides my father, he was the best coach I ever had. We matched the personality very well,”said the hamburger about the long-time top ten player. For Ferrer’s current decision, Hamburg understood that a new cooperation seems possible.” We have left everything open for the future,”said Zverev, who was previously also looked after by former world class professionals Ivan Lendl and Juan Carlos Ferrero.
