World number four Alexander Zverev considers Novak Djokovic to be the biggest roadblock to snagging the Grand Slam

After an all kill this year, the German tennis ace Alexander Zverev is heading to the US Open with an 11-match winning streak. The German player has been on a roll the past few months.

He added the Olympic medal to his collection but if that wasn’t enough he went onto win the Cincinnati Masters. This was his second Masters 1000 title this season but if all his previous wins are counted then it is his fourth Masters 1000 title.

His exemplary performance this season made one of the favourites to snag the title at the US Open since other tennis icons like Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will be missing from the court. That leaves him and Novak Djokovic gunning for the trophy.

Despite his achievements this year, Alexander still thinks that it is not going to be easy to win against Novak. Novak is still the number one favourite for the US Open title.

“I do think that he’s still the favourite. I do think he’s going to be playing incredible tennis there. He’s going to be fresh, and I think there is also other guys that are in very good form.”

Both Alexander and Novak will be trying to land a Grand Slam at the event, but the world no 1 Novak poses a threat to the former’s plans.

Alexander had hoped to win his first Grand Slam last year in New York but his attempt was cut short by Dominic Thiem.

The German was still trying to find his groove last year in New York but he has prepared well for the event this year. He is pretty confident that he has improved in his game and is going to showcase a better performance.

“I was still finding my game during the US Open last year, but it worked well for me. I was pretty close to winning it. But I’m looking forward to what’s in it for me this year, and we’ll see how it is once I arrive there. I’m looking forward to it because I know where I stand, I know how I’m playing, and I hope I can continue the work and hopefully play even better in New York.”
