‘Sascha’ was born with a racket in his hand. Destiny, marked by a family legacy, led Alexander towards tennis from the moment he was part of this world. A couple of retired tennis players decided to continue with, what a couple of years ago, they had left.
The first to continue the legacy in the professional field was Mischa. The oldest of the new Zverev was a professional while a little Alexander traveled with him around the world and became familiar with his new hobby, however, everything was part of the destiny.
Alexander first listened to his parents’ stories as professionals and then watched his brother practice and play tournaments. He understood that his future was written and that it would be a matter of time before one more Zverev joined the family list of professionals.
The story began with Alexander’s father, then Irina joined, and then Mischa, who reached his peak when the young ‘Sascha’ began to play the big tournaments despite his young age. Then the family understood that the youngest of them would be in charge of representing them.
The reigning champion of Acapulco has always been accompanied by his family, especially by his father, or in any case, by Lovik and Junior, his two dogs. Beyond the spotlight, Alexander is still the same guy who once idolized Roger Federer and dreamed about being a professional.
When he is not playing tennis, sports continue to be present in the life of Zverev. Soccer, basketball, and golf are some of his hobbies beyond tennis, also video games. Among their hobbies, family and pets, they make up the human part of one of the most important players on the circuit.
The Zverev legacy is about to become a story that was born decades ago, and today, it has a player installed in the tennis elite. Although there is no assurance in the future, Alexander has been a reality for some time now.
