Zverev qualified fourth for the Champions Tournament

Alexander Zverev is the fourth qualified tennis player for the Champions Tournament, which will take place in mid-November for the first time in Turin. The 24-year-old German, who won the prestigious event at the end of the season three years ago in London, gained confidence after advancing to the third round of the “fifth grand slam” in Indian Wells.

Zverev in California is aiming for the third Masters title this year. He also controlled the Olympic tournament in Tokyo and the ATP event in Acapulco. “I’m having the best season yet and I’m really happy that I qualified,” said Zverev. He joined Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas in the elite society. The champions tournament already knows half of the singles participants.

In Indian Wells in the second round, Zverev lost to home team Jenson Brooksby. The American, who reached the eighth finals at the US Open as a wild card holder, was defeated by the fourth player in the 6: 4, 3: 6 and 6: 1 rankings. In the next phase, he will have an attractive duel with former world number one Andy Murray. The beast had never defeated him before.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray reached the third round of the Masters for the first time since his triumph in Paris in 2016. After that, his career was marked by hip surgery, but he is still doing well in Indian Wells. The 34-year-old Scot defeated the 18-year-old Spaniard Carlos Alcarez 5: 7, 6: 3, 6: 2. The match lasted over three hours.

“Andy plays great again. He won two tough matches, I’m already looking forward to it. He’s the only one in the ‘big four’ I haven’t beaten. I hope to change that tomorrow,” Zverev added. Along with Murray and Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer belong to the elite four.
