German analyst Kuhnen backs Zverev:

German analyst Kuhnen backs Zverev: "He has the makings of a Grand Slam champion".

Patrik Kühnen, former professional tennis player (three-time Davis Cup winner with Germany) and now columnist for Sky Sports, has spoken out on the case of his compatriot Alexander Zverev.

According to him, although he was beaten by Alcaraz in the final (6-3, 2-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2), the world number 4 is no stranger to adversity and knows how to bounce back. Praising his compatriot's resilience, he expects the 27-year-old to come back even stronger: "He was so close to beating Alcaraz, he led two sets to one, but Alcaraz is just fantastic. He showed the character to pull through. His sense of play, creativity and attacking power are unrivalled in today's tennis.

Despite all this, Zverev held up really well thanks to his power and resilience. Yes, in the end, he didn't succeed. But he's strong. The US Open final in 2020 against Dominic Thiem (2-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6), the terrible injury two years ago in the semi-final against Rafael Nadal in Paris and now this final against Alcaraz.

It must hurt, but I'm sure Zverev will come back and give himself another chance. This Roland Garros final has shown once again that he has the makings of a Grand Slam champion. That's obvious."
