During the press conference, Zverev was asked about Carlos Alcaraz and what makes it special.If you leave balls short or don’t play with enough power, it will destroy you.That’s what impresses me most about him. He takes advantage of every little opportunity you give him; if he has time to build the point, you’re lost. In that he resembles Federer, but It also has characteristics of Djokovic and Nadal“like the spin it gives to the ball and its ability to glide across the court,” said the German tennis player.
