Let's hope that Zverev is joined by some of the other youngsters. The inbetweeners (eg Dimitrov) have threatened but never quite made it. As an aside, why do we have a two day old report of Alfie Hewitt reaching the wheelchair final, but I had to do my own research to find he lost 6-4 6-3 to Fernandez? BBC, don't start reporting if you don't intend to finish.
@39Don't play the innocentI agree it doesn't revolve around him, but you and I know that you quite clearly word 99 per cent of your comments in a way to have a pop at him, numerous people on the tennis HYS have remarked on that. You don't like him that's fine just be honest.Yes I do like Zverev and believe he has all the attributes to be successful.
38 I never mentioned AM in this thread. No stats were aimed at him, why would they be? The world of tennis doesn't revolve around him. Im glad you agree 3 career slams is not competitive for a whole career and that zverev will do well.
I lso hope that Zverev and other youngsters will come through and do well.But as usual you were using a stat in isolation to try and perpetuate the myth that overall Stan has been more competitive in slams than AM.In that 3 yr period AM was in more Slam finals than Stan, so although only winning one he was competitive in those slams.
35I agree perspective is required and I also agree only 3 career slams in an entire career is not competitive!The point I was making was that for the 3 year period when he won 3 slams he was competitive.Hopefully zverev and other young ones can each win handful slams so the circuit becomes more competitive than the current generation where only the big 3 realistically complete
@34I disagree You mention the 46 slams the big 3 have won which is since their careers started but focus only on the last 3 yrs for Stan in an attempt to justify your silly childish agenda Stan turned pro in 2002 and has won 3 slams in 15 yrs, so not that competitive.Perspective is required.
33 disagree re the standard of tennis.The big 3 have dominated with their 46 slams as the rest are simply not good enough. Only Stan with his 3 slams in 3 years has come close to regularly winning slams. Let's hope the next generation has its stars but is also more competitive
Zverev looks like a future number 1, only after Rafa, Djokovic and the others call it a day of course. The standard of men's tennis will take a step backwards for the next five years at least.
Let's hope he can fulfill the potential. Would be great if he could regularly win slams. Only Feds, nadal, Djokovic and Stan from the current crop have managed 3 slams in 3 years. It would be great if zverev could compete and make the slams competitive
@ smithy. Well done Smithy, yes Murray is a Scot. Gold star for you! We all salute you for that comment.
