Rafael Nadal is no doubt the headline act in Group Andre Agassi at the ATP Finals, but Alexander Zverev feels it’s an “interesting” and “very open” group.
While Group Bjorn Borg contains two of the Big Three in Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, the other group has three “youngsters” as Zverev, Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas make up the quartet.
To add some extra spice to it, Zverev is the defending champion, Medvedev has enjoyed a dream second half of 2019 as he won three tournaments and reached the US Open final while Tstitsipas is no slouch either having beaten the likes of Djokovic, Nadal, Zverev and Federer this year.
“Obviously it’s the best eight players in the world so there’s nobody that you’d rather play but I think the Andre Agassi group is especially interesting with the three young guys and Rafa in there. It’s a very open one,” Zverev is quoted as saying by Metro.co.uk.
Asked about his chances of defending his title, he replied: “Obviously it was very special lifting that trophy up last year. I’ll do everything I can to have my chances again and win as many matches as possible here.”
