And he will also be presented with statistics that he has not wanted to see for a long time. Zverev has competed eleven times in Grand Slams against opponents from the top ten and has lost eleven times. There is always a bit missing. That was already the case in the US Open final of 2020 against Dominic Thiem, when he was only two points away from the coup. This also applied again to the match against Djokovic, which the achievement of historical records was particularly encouraging.
Again, it was not enough for a shift in the balance of power in Zverev’s direction, who played big at times, but ultimately had to accept his inferiority. “In the most important moments, he suddenly becomes a wall. He’s the best player in the world for a reason,” said Zverev, praising his conqueror.
