Alexander Zverev says he is doing well after ankle surgery but doesn’t have a timetable for his return just yet. Zverev has been sidelined since his French Open semifinal against Rafael Nadal, when he tore several ligaments in his ankle.
Zverev reported to Eurosport that he is doing well after suffering an injury. Every day, I get a little bit closer to getting back on the tennis court, and it feels great.
No specific date has been set for a return, but I am working hard every day to make it happen as soon as possible.
Zverev explains how he was able to make a full recovery.
Due to his extensive rehabilitation, Zverev has not yet returned to the practice court.
Zverev complained that the days lasted for an extremely long time. You get up super early and work until late at night. We engage in a wide variety of physical activities; new ones are consistently integrated into our routine. The foot is fixed, the range of motion is increased, and the foot’s strength and stability are restored.
Normal gait and gait speed can be re-learned in some cases. Sprints in the pool, cardio on the treadmill, and rides on the bike are all part of my routine. The instant Zverev rolled his ankle, he began crying out in pain.
Zverev, who has used a wheelchair and then crutches due to injuries, says he has first-hand experience with the difficulties faced by professional athletes. “Danger lurks around every corner in professional sports, and it does the same in your everyday life,” he said.
Each day, I put in a full day of work with my team to ensure that everything goes smoothly. You should train as much as possible to get better, but don’t push yourself too hard. Listening to my body is essential for understanding when I have reached my limits.
In both practice and competition, I’m accustomed to giving my all on a daily basis. It may be counterproductive to go beyond it at this time.
