Zverev is part of the group that is looked upon as the next generation of players  who will eventually take over from the ‘Big Three’ of tennis. He ended last year well by reaching the Finals of the US Open. But the new year hasn’t started that well for the German. He lost in the Quarter Finals of the Australian Open to Novak Djokovic 6-7 6-4 6-2 7-6. Zverev next participated in the Rotterdam Open where he was ousted in the round of 32 by Alexander Bublik 7-5 6-3.
