Sascha Zverev is about to face his dear friend Dominic Thiem for a place in the final in London. It’s impressive to notice that in a few days, both of them defeated the big3. In fact, while Dominic beat Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, Sascha overcame Rafael Nadal.
About beating Federer and Djokovic
Soon after qualifying for the semifinal, Sascha was asked about the performance of Dominic Thiem. The German revealed that he was impressed with his results against the Swiss and the Serb also because he knows pretty well what does it mean to beat them both back to back (he achieved the same feat last year at he same event). Sascha commented:
“He’s been playing some unbelievable tennis, maybe the best tennis that we have ever seen from him. Actually beating Roger and Novak on this court is very special. Doing it back-to-back is very, very difficult. It’s going to be a very difficult match.
I’m looking forward to it. Honestly, I’m just happy to be in the semi-finals, and from here on, we’ll just see how it goes.”
The pick for Tennis Tonic is Dominic Thiem that is expected to win in 3 sets.
