Zverev pays tribute to Federer’s ‘greatness’: #20andcounting
Alexander Zverev reckons Roger Federer could yet add to his 20 Grand Slam titles, applauding the Swiss player for “showing us all greatness.”
Federer added a 20th Grand Slam title to his growing list last Sunday when he beat Marin Cilic to the Australian Open title.
His victory means the 36-year-old holds three of the four Slam titles at present, only the French – which he didn’t compete in – out of his grasp.
His achievements have earned him praise from all quarters with Zverev the latest to applaud his “greatness.”
“#20 the greatest player of all time. Someone that I’ve looked up to my whole life and someone I shared the court with multiple times,” Zverev wrote on Instagram.
“Someone that I even can call my teammate. Someone that gave me mentoring after tough loses. One of the best people on tour has done it again.
“Winning just one grand slam is a dream come true for anyone but doing it 20 times is something we might never see again.
“Well done @rogerfederer and thank you for showing us all greatness
