Sascha Zverev is about to start his Australian Open hoping to win his first career slam. However, the German had a couple of setbacks in the last few days after he got injured to his hamstring and then at his ankle. Sascha was blessed by a great draw and it would be a pity if the world no.4 would not be fit to play. Zverev doesn’t seem to be worried about that.
Why Zverev is not worried about his injury
During the pre-tournament press conference, Sascha commented
“The ankle is fine. It’s just a little bit swollen. I didn’t actually twist it. I just kind of went over it a little bit. You know, actually what happened was a bone pushed against another bone. There was, like, inflammation between those two bones. I’m fine.
I’m going to play with the tape. It’s just a little bit uncomfortable, but it’s nothing that can get worse or anything like that.
I’m actually quite relaxed about it.”
Zverev will face Aljaz Bedene in the first round in Melbourne. The H2H is 2-0 for Zverev that is expected to cruise to the second round if he is fully fit.
