Former tennis player Mischa Zverev, Sascha’s brother and current Eurosport commentatoranalyzed the confrontation between his brother Alexander and Rafa Nadal in the first round of Roland Garros.

Zverev, who spoke to Eurosport Germany, looked back to remember the last match between his brother and Nadal at Roland Garros, in the 2022 semifinals. “When you see the draw for Roland Garros 2024 and you see a Zverev-Nadal in the first round, it takes time to digest it. The last duel between the two at Roland Garros was a three-hour match that ended without a match point because Sascha was injured and did not finish, and he was also out for six or seven months, while Nadal won his last Roland Garros.

Mischa Zverev opened up about that match, where he believes that Sascha could have won if he had not been injured, and was emphatic in his prediction for the first round match between Alexander Zverev and Rafa Nadal. “Everyone tells me: ‘Mischa, what do you think?’ I think Sascha could and should have won that match. And this time he will also win it, since Rafa is now slower and his physical condition is not the same. His shots may be the same but the question is whether he can do them in a five-set match. I think the winner will be Zverev and I hope he wins it in three sets.”

However, Mischa Zverev assures that the match between his brother and Nadal will also have an important emotional component since it could be Nadal’s last match at Roland Garros.. “I think it will be a difficult match, not in terms of play but mentally, since it could be Nadal’s last match at Roland Garros. The public will not be able to decide if they want to see a great match or Nadal at Philippe-Chatrier. “The two will arrive with courage and nerves, but with the feeling that the Nadal era could come to an end at Roland Garros.”
