Jacked this from Mischa Zverev's instagram, which brother do you guys think looks most like their dad? I can see shades of both of them.

Zed Sr. a bit later perhaps

Best early Zverev run was two losses to Sweden in 1982 Davis Cup tie:
Round Robin -
Mats Wilander
L 64 8-10 26 (must have been extra match after tie decided, but went the distance)
Round Robin -
Anders Jarryd
L 16 63 60 36 26

Today, rumors have started circulating that hint the possibility of Lendl joining Zverev's team :eek: I don't know how serious they can be, but it's worth reporting:



Love this post!

Heard it while watching first men's semi-final that Ivan had inquired about Zverev. Its interesting cause I thought Becker would have been the natural choice but if this happens, Zverev is guaranteed to reach his full potential and will only confirm the epicness of this thread :p.

Yeah pretty shameful for Del Thugtro that Zed will already have 3 MS-1000 at age 20!
Well Delpo had a slam at 20 beating the two greatest players of all time in a row while they were in their primes , He Also already had a couple of QF and 1 SFs, Zverev can’t even do that with a Weak field

Rumours that Lendl and Zverev could be working together in near future. Would be an interesting partnership if it happens as he could help to clean up forehand and take him to no.1 and winning slams as he did with Murray.

That’s the beckoning gesture to the crowd to applaud his shot that is irritating. No need for it, the shot or winner speaks for itself. I think Chung has done this as well. Just celebrate and enjoy it; not demand an ovation for it.
Yeah, Chung does a lesser version but at least they get support, Coric gets nothing.

Well, that was a disappointing defeat :( but John played very well and he deserved to win.

Despite the defeat, though, this tournament has been mostly positive for Alex! It seems he has his confidence back, has learned to hustle, and could have gained a new coach (just maybe? :oops:). I've also read he wanted to withdraw from Miami prior his first match :eek:

I think Miami performance will bring back Zverev confidence.After the last year in Montreal he havent performed well until this tournament.And yeah Isner deserved one Masters 1000 after 3 lost finals

Yeah, I think its a positive for Sascha and heart warming win for John. I saw Sascha improving in many aspects including his emotions so its confidence booster for clay season. Its a loss but I don't think it will sting for too long.

By the way, I heard a few comments saying this happened but I wanted to see the images first before commenting here. It seems Lovik was present in Alex's semi-final press conference! :eek: I didn't know it was allowed to have pets in those places, is this a first?

One funny thing Zverev said during his trophy presentation was "Maybe (John) you could tell me how it feels to win here" which is same words Federer said to him in Montreal. I like him for trying to be like Federer media-wise but gotta come up with own content :rolleyes:.

I noticed that as well! I get Federer is his idol, he wants to be like him and all that, but yeah... it was a bit obvious, especially since Roger said that not so long ago. Z needs to stop trying to be liked so much and just be himself, he's a nice guy, there's no need to try to mold himself to be someone else.

Gonna re-write something I wrote from another thread but I think Zverev Sr. wants to be first to guide Sascha to his first grand slam. If another coach were to enter the team, they might have to share roles cause I'm not sure at the moment Zverev Sr. will allow for someone else to take full control. Just my hunch though and I do believe his Dad wants the best for Sascha but he also wants to continue having credit which makes sense since it is very meaningful for their family.

Same thing in pressers, he often says "Look.." before answering a question which also Federer/Djokovic does. I bet he watches YouTube videos of Feds interviews haha. I think its great he wants to sound professional and sometimes adds in some sarcasm but I'd rather see him answering youthfully without filters like Osaka or Shapovalov, it gives better insight and allows for us to see his real personality.

'Look' is more like a filler word, or at least I've been seeing it a lot in the speech of not native speakers (me included), so I don't think he's trying to copy that from them. I do think he's trying to follow the pattern of how the big four addresses the media. It could be the case he's actually more mature than the rest of the people his age, but I'm leaning more towards the idea that he's trying to sound more mature and professional, he pretty much grew up on the tour so he must be familiar with that way of expression. He gives himself away when he's not in a proper interview, his more youthful persona comes out.

I'm not the biggest Denis' fan, even though I recognize he has a lot of charisma. I totally adore Osaka though, she's so charming and adorable, really wins you over with her honesty and awkwardness.

Not sure calling for applause is irksome, plenty of players do it.

Calling for it as if you’re hailing a waiter for currywurst?

That’s never going to go down proper in MIA.
