The German tennis Olympic champion Alexander Zverev still has to worry about his participation in the US Open.

    “It’s still too early, I’ve played tennis for the first time,” said the 25-year-old after the first light training session on the RTL and ntv television channels. He had just played tennis “very, very carefully” for the first time, emphasized the Hamburger and added with a view to the important tournament from August 29th to September 11th in New York City: “To play in a Grand Slam is it’s still a long way off, let’s see how that will work.”

    Zverev twisted his right foot in the semifinals of the French Open against Rafael Nadal on June 3 and tore all three lateral ligaments in his right ankle. Then he had an operation. During his first training session he “really had no pain at all”, he said: “Of course I moved very carefully, I haven’t put any pressure on my foot yet, but it’s just good news that I really don’t have any pain had – now we can look further!”
