“We have a tough battle ahead of us with Alcaraz.” Zverev – about the Roland Garros final

The fourth racket in the world Alexander Zverev said he expected a tough battle against the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz in the Roland-Garros final.

On Friday, Zverev defeated Norwegian Casper Ruud in the semifinals of Roland Garros with a score of 2:6, 6:2, 6:4, 6:2. For victory at the Grand Slam tournament, the German representative will face the third number in the ranking Alcaraz, who defeated the Italian Jannik Sinner.

— In the final of a Grand Slam tournament, there are no easy matches or easy opponents. If you reach the final of Roland Garros, it’s because you deserve it, so that goes for Carlos too. He played a fantastic match and tournament. I expect a very difficult ending.

There are only two ways to grow. The first is the US Open final in 2020 (Zverev lost to Dominic Thiem in five sets – Editor’s note), the second is the injury I received here in 2022. In these cases, you have to come back more strong, hungry, with the desire to win even more, that’s what I did in 2021, where I had my best season so far.

I still hadn’t won a Grand Slam, but I felt there was a chance. I won an Olympic gold medal and the most tour titles of any player of my generation. You immerse yourself in a way, there is a risk of breaking down psychologically, but I’m happy to have chosen this path.

Of course, Alcaraz has had some very difficult matches in the past, but he is playing much better now, and I am probably the player he has played against the most times in his career. A difficult battle awaits us,” Zverev was quoted as saying. Break Point .

Zverev and Alcaraz had nine meetings, five of which Zverev won. The Roland Garros final will take place on Sunday.
