World No.3 Alexander Zverev advanced to the quarterfinal at Monte-Carlo Masters 2022 after a straight-set(6-2, 7-5) win over Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta. In his on-court interview, the 24-year-old from Germany commented that for ‘someone who wants to win the bigger tournaments, they want to play aggressively.’
“For the second clay-court match of the season, I can’t complain too much,” Alexander Zverev said.
“Yes, I have lost focus a little bit in the second set, but at the end of the day, he’s somebody that can really play. I’m happy with a two-set win.”
In addition to this, Zverev has won five ATP Masters 1000 and two ATP Finals titles. And, he reached the US Open Final in 2022.
The 19-time ATP Tour-level title winner continued, “To win the biggest tournaments in the world, like the Masters series, like Grand Slams, you have to be aggressive. I’m not going to win big titles just by pushing the ball.”
Speaking about serving on the red dart, Zverev expressed, “It’s great because especially on a clay court, especially here where it’s a little bit slower I think than other clay courts that we play on, it is very important to get that confidence going on your serve. All around, it’s important to get these kinds of wins.”
In his quarterfinal match at Monte-Carlo Masters 2022, Alexander Zverev will face Jannik Sinner.
