Alexander Zverev is surprisingly struggling during this first start of the season with 10-7 win-loss record.
The German was battling with an ankle injury and an illness in the first 3 months, but now he seems to have no physical issues. Nevertheless, Sascha is having a disastrous clay court season with a 2-3 win-loss record after losing in the 2nd round in Marrakech, in the 3rd in Monte Carlo, and in his opening match in Barcelona at the hands of the world no.81 and lucky loser Nicolas Jarry.
Kyrgios, Kokkinakis vs. Ben Rothenberg
Well-known New York Times journalist Ben Rothenberg launched a poll on Twitter asked if it is time to worry about Sascha Zverev (until now the answer is “yes”). However, he had an immediate (and harsh) reaction from Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis.

Nick is notoriously in bad terms with the journalist to reply: “Honestly with everything going on in the world, I don’t think this is at all what we should be focusing on.”

Thanasi commented: “Multiple masters at 22… I think he will be ok”
