Alexander Zverev 3R interview

  • def. Alex Bolt 6-3 6-3 6-2

Q. You must be very happy with the way things are going so far.
ALEXANDER ZVEREV: Yeah, I'm in the second week, so... Why wouldn't I be happy?

Q. Is your form exactly where you'd like it to be or are there still things to improve?
ALEXANDER ZVEREV: There's always things to improve. But I think I played a good match today. I mean, obviously the match with Jeremy was very tough. Generally speaking, heading into the second week, I feel pretty good.

Q. You talked about Alex's potential. Do you see him being a top 50 or 20 player in the future?
ALEXANDER ZVEREV: Yeah, top 50. I think he has a good chance. Obviously he has a lot of power. That helps. You got to build around that. You got to build your game around power. He has a decent serve, very good forehand I thought. If he continues playing this way, he's hopefully going to be a very good player.

Q. Milos, doesn't get any easier. Do you think you match up well with him?
ALEXANDER ZVEREV: I mean, we played twice, once on clay, once or grass, which were two very different matches obviously. He's playing very well. Only lost a set to Stan in the tournament so far.

It's going to be a fun match. Obviously not a lot of rallies, not a lot of long points. We'll see how it goes.
