Roger Federer predicts big future for Alexander Zverev after Laver Cup win
spoke about the epic Sunday at the Laver Cup. The Swiss defeated John Isner to make the Team Europe stay alive and then Alexander Zverev gave the win by defeating Milos Raonic. "Sascha played a super tie-breaker at the end", admitted the Basel native.
"For me just to stay alive, that was big against John, but also coach and captain Bjorn Borg and Rafael Nadal. There was so much energy, we got along so well, the camaraderie was great, so I could not be more excited right now.
It's so cool." Zverev and Federer share the same agent, Tony Godsick, as the Swiss's management company Team8 signed the Hamburg native in July. The world No. 3 added: "We believed in him as we believed in every player.
And I also believed that Dominic Thiem was gonna win but Taylor Fritz played a great match and Sascha, I yelled at him all the way to the locker room, in the locker, on the way back, that this hope is going to turn his season around.
Confidence might not be as high as it has been in the past years but this is exactly the kind of final that he needed to hopefully turn it back on. He has proven his qualities in the last three Laver Cups in front of almost 20,000 people every time and he came through so he can handle it.
In terms of Slams and all the big tournaments, it's just a question of time for him to put it all together but this was definitely a very emotional day for Sascha." Lindsay Davenport said: "You could see how united the Team World was.
They worked together. Nick Kyrgios was doing most of the coaching delivering good messages and Rafa Nadal, he might have not played today but he played a big role in his team success this entire weekend."
