Alexander Zverev has defended his poor Grand Slam record after winning the ATP World Tour Finals at The O2.
The German beat Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic en-route to winning the coveted prize, with many commentators hailing it as a huge breakthrough moment for the 21-year-old.
However, his poor Grand Slam performance remains a huge question-mark over Zverev considering he has never been further than the quarter-finals.
He, though, says his record his not a fair reflection of his tennis.
“I think there’s been a few unlucky moments for me this year,” he said. “I’ve done really well at the French, then I got injured.
“I don’t know how far I could have gone. But how the clay court season ended for me was a little bit upsetting.
“The other Grand Slams, I played against a very good Chung in the Australian Open, which I lost a five-set match.
“Wimbledon I was not prepared to play because of the injury that happened in the French. US Open I had a bad match.
“These things happen. It’s fine. I’ll think about next year when I come back from holidays.”
