Rarely does one get an opportunity to achieve something that neither Roger Federer nor Novak Djokovic have managed over the course of their illustrious careers. However, German tennis star Alexander Zverev boasts of one such unique milestone, having recorded the same during the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics. Zverev won a gold medal in the men’s singles event, which has managed to elude those two superstars in an individual capacity. However, achieving noteworthy feats is no rarity for the German who emerged as the champion in the 2018 edition of the ATP Finals, which made him the youngest winner at the year-end championship in a decade. Zverev further presents a strong challenge to the ‘Big Four’ which includes Federer, Rafael Nadal, Djokovic and Andy Murray, being the only player barring those names to have recorded five ATP Masters 1000 titles.

The German has won 17 singles titles so far at the age of 24, which is an indication of his prowess. While many tennis players were finding their feet at this stage of their lives, Zverev has hit the ground running showcasing his talent. The same was evident in his performances during the 2020 edition of the US Open, with the German delivering a fine display. Djokovic was defaulted during his fourth-round encounter against Pablo Carreno Busta, after hitting a ball out of frustration which went on to hit a line judge in the throat.
