“Extreme pain in the foot”: Alexander Zverev has to cancel Davis Cup

“extreme pain in foot”
Alexander Zverev has to cancel Davis Cup

Everything was actually done: Alexander Zverev wants to celebrate his comeback just in time for the Davis Cup in his hometown after Germany’s best tennis player was seriously injured at the French Open. Zverev spreads confidence for a long time, but shortly before the first serve he has to announce bitter news.

Alexander Zverev has been working on a comeback for weeks after his serious ligament injury, but the return of Germany’s best tennis player will take weeks, maybe months, as he announced shortly before the start of the Davis Cup group phase. After suffering an ankle injury in the semifinals of the French Open, Zverev actually wanted to play for Germany in his hometown, but the top player had “extreme pain in his foot” again in training. Zverev is missing in the preliminary round games against France (Wednesday), Belgium (Friday) and Australia (Sunday). The German team is led by Oscar Otte after Zverev’s absence, Jan-Lennard Struff as the second individual player, Yannic Hanfmann and the doubles specialists Kevin Krawietz and Tim Pütz are part of the team. The top two teams in each group will qualify for the final tournament of the competition in November.

More to come.
