Roland-Garros – “Injury looks very serious”: Zverev does not hide his anxiety after leaving in half

Her scream and tears cast a chill on the Philippe-Chatrier court on Friday. Alexander Zverev’s brilliant fortnight ended in the most terrible of ways with a Roland-Garros semi-final defeat to Rafael Nadal (7-6, 6-6, ab.). The German, who violently sprained his right ankle, had left the stage on crutches and canceled his press conference, as can obviously be understood in such a circumstance. But he finally wanted to break the news at the end of the evening.


The stat that kills: Ruud, a course without a Top 10 but a colossal challenge in the end


In a video posted on the tournament’s Twitter account, he did so on the verge of being in good health. “It was a very difficult time for me on the court today (Friday). It was a fantastic match until what happened happened. Apparently I have a very serious one, but the medical team and the doctors are still examining him. We will keep you posted when we find out more“, he pointed out.

I hope Rafa can get to the end

The naked Olympic champion therefore obviously does not yet know what he is suffering from and cannot project on his potential length of distance from the courts. His existence at Wimbledon in less than a month already seems very uncertain.

Zverev ended his message with words of praise for his opponent of the day who was sorry for him. “I would obviously like to congratulate Rafa on this amazing accomplishment and this 14th final back to Roland Garros. I hope he can go to the end and write the History of the game again“He concluded, in a low voice, visibly very affected. One would be less so: in a matter of seconds, everything changed for him this Friday. From the dream of a first Grand Slam title to the nightmare of abandonment.

Tears and abandonment: Zverev’s nightmare against Nadal


“I’d rather lose the final”: If Nadal could have a brand new foot … he wouldn’t hesitate



What if these ladies played the Grand Slams in 3 winning sets? “Seeing him in the end would be appealing”
