Alexander Zverev, Mischa Zverev receive wildcard into Acapulco doubles event

Germany’s Alexander Zverev and Mischa Zverev have received a wildcard into the Acapulco men’s doubles event as they will again try to win it all on the hard courts of the Mexican ATP 500 event. 

The Zverev’s traditionally play doubles together in Acapulco as they are set to make their fourth consecutive doubles appearance at the tournament. 

The Zverev brothers debuted at the tournament in 2018 but didn’t enjoy much success as they were beaten in their opener. 

But the Zverev’s enjoyed much bigger success in the following year as they beat Austin Krajicek and Artem Sitak in the final. 

Last year, the Zverev brothers failed to defend their title as they lost in the quarterfinal.

Alexander Zverev set to return to action 

Zverev is set to return to action as he hasn’t played since losing in the Australian Open quarterfinal to Novak Djokovic.

“It was a great match. We both played well and I’m not happy with the result,” Zverev said after losing his last match. “I think we were both fine today (physically). It was a hard match, I don’t know what Novak said on it.”

Zverev also called for clarity when it comes to tennis calendar. 

“We can’t have a traveling circuit right now,” Zverev said after his loss in Australia. “I think what the ATP should do and should look into is, you know, maybe having a venue like here and play multiple weeks at one place. Multiple tournaments, multiple weeks. 

“Because at the end of the day in Europe right now we can’t have spectators anyways, so what difference does it really make where we play the tournament? We can change the background, we can change the, you know, city name on the court or whatever, and then play it at one venue.

“I do agree with Novak, and we talked about it with Novak, as well, and with Vasek Pospisil, as well, that we simply cannot have a traveling circuit with how things are going.”
