No.2 seed Alexander Zverev seized his 14th tour-level title after a tight final against No.1 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Acapulco Open 2021. Just after lifting a trophy on the hardcourt, German unveiled his next move.  

Zverev claimed his first title of the season without dropping a set. Consequently, he became a leading title winner(14) in the most titles of any player born since 1994. 

When speaking about his overall performance in the post-match interview, he said, “It’s a great achievement for me. You come to play tournaments to win tournaments. I have done that this week. I am thrilled with that.”

On the other hand, the 23-years-old from Hamburg has won the Master 1000 titles, ATP Finals title, but he did not capture a Grand Slam crown even though he reached the final at the US Open 2020.

Alexander continued, “The main goal is still the biggest titles in the world. The Grand Slams are the most difficult ones to win, and I haven’t achieved that yet, but I am looking forward to it. I think this is a big stepping stone for me.”

“You Always Try To Evolve,” says Alexander Zverev

Since the tennis return after lockdown last year, Zverev is one of the best performers of the men’s game. He has managed to play in the five championship matches on the hard surface. Especially he hunted two titles at his home ATP 250 indoor events, Cologne 1 and Cologne 2.  

When asked about his recent achievements on the hardcourt, Zverev explained, “I got older (and) maybe a few things changed for me. I know how to handle a few things, maybe a little bit better. And, as a tennis player, you always try to evolve.”

However, World No. 6 will next compete at the Miami Open 2021, where he will have a chance to add one more Master 1000 title to his account. Notably, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem, Stan Wawrinka and Gael Monfils will not be in the title race this year.
