We all know about the ABZ hate club but Zverev seems to have quite a lot of fans as well. Let’s see who is fan and who’s not.

I’m rooting for Zverev as usual.

He has beaten ND in a couple of finals, the alleged hate towards AZ is simply a few salty ND fans promoting it on TT.

This according to standard TT fanboyism «logic».

He’s also one of the more likable characters on the tour. I too do not understand ABZ.

I can see why some people don't like him. I'm pretty neutral myself. I can look past on-court antics and brattiness, but he does seem unlikable off-court too. I still think he's the only next gen I view as being a potential atg. Which means he's also the biggest disappointment

I don't hate anyone, but Zverev is one of the most unpleasant players to watch between points. Nice strokes though.

Well, judging by the poll results, he’s probably the least popular player in the top 10. Poor Zverev.

I hate to admit it but I really do like him.

I guess I can relate to having huge expectations that you can't quite seem to meet. (I have a semi famous Dad and I just suck compared to him)

Not a fan unfortunately. He comes across as a whiny manchild with a highly slapable face, second only to Tsitsipas.

Don’t say that, you’re doing okay. I’m very proud of you, son.

Used to like him when he burst on the scene, just because he was the only solid NextGenner and had insane work ethic/drive. He earned even more of my respect after USO20.
Now I can't ignore the allegations, considering his denials of it had "guilty" written all over them. Hard to root for an abuser.
Please let’s keep this thread clean.

Without his serve yips, he would have won a lot already. He has the game to be an ATG if he can get over the yips, but we all know it could take years or might never go away unfortunately.

Actually, most of the hate towards the nextgen has been mainly from roger fans who have been a little too upset about novak catching up in the slame race.
LOL! As if Roger or his Fans have ANYTHING to fear. Rogers GOAT legacy in cemented in stone......Others not so much.
You Crack me up !

TRUE GOATS -The debate is over !

It's really just the second serve. His first is one of the top five in the game.

I am neutral with a slight dislike.

I think he is good for the game and has the highest ceilling among Next Genners, so I would be ok seeing him do well.
Otoh, I dislike his personality.
I think Shapo and Tsits have higher ceilings, probably FAA too.

I love Shapovalov but his style is not efficient. He will never win majors if he doesn’t change his approach. Tsitsipas is a proven value, and is higher than Zverev in the rankings. However, I still believe Zverev has the higher ceiling because of his game that has no real weaknesses. He has had a difficult year and I can’t imagine that it didn’t a big toll on his mentality and game. He can only get better from here.

Given what he's achieved by beating Novak who is the best player this year winning wimb, aus and french, he clearly deserves the title.

He dealt a huge blow to Djokovic juggernaut. He's done the impossible. It was supposed to be a cakewalk for him.

I will root for him in the final. Go Zv!

This echoes my own thoughts.

Didn't they get back together?

Tbh he does not seem like someone who has anger issues.

Shapo is my fav for his style. Such a flamboyant player. He will learn and win wimbledon, I'm sure.

Tsitsi is a natural I agree. He will win lots.

Once Zv sorts out his mental issues with serve, he will be hard to beat.

I was very surprised too, but remember people can be very different in private vs in public.
Zverev did get mad on court, but it was always directed at himself and he often looked more depressed than angry. You can't always infer people's private lives from what they do on court.

But then later he was the least solid and could lose to anyone any day, hitting 20 double faults and tons of other errors.

And work ethic? Some of his former coaches say otherwise.

Have always disliked him even though I’d love to root for a German player. Egotistical, conceited and self-centered.
Well it is indeed his f**king time lol.
Made atleast a QF or better in 4 of the next 6 slams he played
(And yes that's considered an achievement for the NextGen)
