Compatibility as Davis Cup captain and German coach creates division in Spanish team
- Roland Garros Why might Nadal consider saying goodbye after playing one of the best games of his life?
Spanish Davis Cup team captain Sergi Bruguera will have to be in an uncomfortable position again in a match to be played this Friday, not before 2:45 pm, with Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev looking for a Roland Garros final. As it happened against Carlos Alcaraz in the Madrid finals and again last Wednesday in the quarterfinals against Murcia, the two-time former champions will play on Parisian soil. Box Alexander Zverev, close to his father, who had once recovered from his health problems, has returned to closely monitor the development of the world number three.
As a logical response to the new responsibility she had acquired since last March at the Masters 1000 in Miami, Bruguera celebrated Zverev’s qualification for the semi-finals with joy at Philippe-Chatier, after remaining calm and composed throughout the match. The fact of reconciling the two situations has already caused uneasiness among some Spanish players, who met in Paris before the start of the tournament. At the moment, although David Ferrer is named as a replacement, the Spanish Tennis Federation has not made a decision.
Spain will play in Valencia in the Davis Cup group stage from 13 to 18 September, which ended in draws with Serbia, Canada and Korea. In terms of qualifying, he will fight for the seventh Salad Bowl in the final leg of Málaga in November. In general, the sixth victory in 2019 saw team head Bruguera fulfill his contract and remain in office until at least the end of the course, until the situation turned toxic.
Zverev, a maverick player who is threatened with an eight-week ban and a 23,000-euro fine if he repeats behavior such as hitting the referee’s chair at the Acapulco tournament with his racket, has already played a role in Juan Carlos Ferrero and Juan Carlos Ferrero. Have faced David Ferrer. One of the benches was often affected by his scathing and rude reactions, which was one of the reasons why Ferrero, today next to the successful and happy Alcaraz, decided to leave him., The world number three, double champion of the ATP finals, finalist of the United States Open in 2020 and winner of 19 ATP titles, did not respond to what the 25-year-old from Hamburg said, partly because of her lack of tennis qualities , because of his lack of attitude and the uncertain direction of his career.
a highly protective environment
Benjamin, from a family devoted to tennis, begins with his parents, Alexander and Irina, both former Russian professional players, and his brother Misha, who at the age of 34 still plays second-ranked tournaments, the youngest of the Zverevs. , two meters tall and with a chivalry of a gallon, he grew up in an over-protective environment which explains his mental fragility.
Bruguera, who during his illustrious career left little-edited episodes in public dealings with his father and coach, Luce, is now on the other side of the stage.Exposure to the indifference of a young man, who, although it bears no resemblance to the way he plays, draws parallels to his grumpy and unruly character.
He is a hard, rocky player who moves very well for his stature, Moy yesterday portrayed tennis player Zverev, who has lost six of his nine matches against Nadal, and four of five. They have played on the grass. The second round saw a match point against Argentine Sebastian Baez, Sasha, and the survivor of two unfavorable sets, as he is also known on the circuit, repeats in the semi-finals of the tournament, where he had stopped last year. Another figure from the so-called Next Gen, Stefanos Tsitsipas, is weakened by the collusion of his parents.
