Alexander Zverev, the second-ranked player in the world, has returned to the practice court but has not yet decided whether or not to enter the US Open. Zverev practiced “extremely gingerly” when he returned to the courts after tearing multiple ankle ligaments at the French Open.
Zverev is relieved to have been given the go-ahead to train once more, but he is being extremely cautious since he doesn’t want to experience a setback. Zverev felt no foot soreness after his first practice after his break, which is really encouraging.
Zverev told n-tv.de, “Of course, I moved very cautiously, and I haven’t put any pressure on my foot yet, but it’s just excellent news that I truly haven’t had any pain at all – so we can move on.”
He reported “basically no soreness at all” on his first practice.
“I obviously moved very slowly, and I haven’t yet put any pressure on my foot, but it’s just excellent news that I really haven’t had any pain at all, so now we can move on,” said Zverev.

The Alexander Zverev Foundation, which supports kids with type 1 diabetes and encourages people to live healthy, active lives, has formally launched today.
Our goal is to help those in need, including children in underdeveloped nations, by donating insulin and life-saving medications. And because I have type 1 diabetes, I want to inspire kids with the disease to never give up on their aspirations, no matter what people may say.
