Alexander Zverev turns to David Ferrer as he adds Spaniard to his coaching team on a trial run
Former world No 3 David Ferrer has been handed a trial run as Alexander Zverev’s coach with a report claiming the German hopes to add him to his team on a full-time basis.
Zverev made a nightmare start to the 2019 campaign on the back of winning the ATP Finals in November 2018 and he decided to part ways with former world No 1 Ivan Lendl in July last year.
Although he showed encouraging signs of returning to form during the latter half of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, his last trophy success came at the Geneva Open in May 2019.
The German, who is currently being coached by his father Alexander Sr, is determined to turn things around and Spanish paper Marca reports the 23-year-old has asked Ferrer to join his coaching set-up.
Ferrer, who retired from professional tennis in 2019, has reportedly travelled to Monte Carlo for a 15-day trial period “to get to know each other better and to discuss expectations”.
