I'd advise him just one thing: fewer words, more workout, Sascha!

Yep, he did. Clearly wasn't referring to himself though ;), being too busy partying and fooling around.

And no, I'm no Sascha hater, used to like him a lot, used to expect a lot from him, and still there's a part of me that hopes he'll get it together sooner rather than later.

But the man we saw playing against Andy looked somehow beaten already before the match even begun, and it was only about to get worse.

Time for him to start working on it. And if I was him, I would start from the mental side, asap. Hopefully it isn't too late yet.

I think he was talking about his future carreer as a comedian.

I’m sure he did put the work in but no amount of work can make up for the skill gap between him and Murray.

Tough draw for Zverev. Hard luck. The King prevailed as expected

In fact he came agonizingly close to upsetting the Mighty Andy. So he can only take positives from this loss and just pray he’ll avoid drawing Metalray early in the USO.

No, the only reason why he lost is because he gave victory to Andy with df-s. Andy was dead, but Zverer once again proved that no one can be more dead than he can.

Even hard work can't help there, physical aspect is not a problem. He needs hard work on mentality! He needs some Tony Nadal to make a warrior out of him. He needs an army drill. To be a predator, thirsty for blood. He got to find that somehow inside him.

Yips on the serve are rather difficult to iron out, regardless of training.

lose to a 30+ y.o. sporting an artificial hip.
I'm hoping other players underestimate Murray like this. I think a lot of the top players think Murray is an easy win.

Y’all sleepin on Murray. Sure the guy has a metal hip and clearly declined but he’s still the same guy that won 3 slams and had consistently made it to semis/finals of the biggest tournaments and also has 2 OG’s. He may not be as good physically but he knows how to win matches and his mental game will get him wins against most players on the tour.

Plus Murray is and has been probably the 2nd greatest returner of all time.. or at least top 5.

So of course he will eat up 2nd serves and intimidate mentally weak Zverev

Especially considering Zverev has probably the worst second serve I’ve ever seen in top 100 along with Aliassime.

Exactly

Putting in work is one thing, guts show through when it matters. And Murray, even bionic and declined and currently outside top #100, still beating these kids

By the way I thought Zverev hired Ferrer and then did not bring him to USO, what is he doing

The guy also made around 30 forehand unforced errors, he was wank.
Exactly, his FH was completely off yesterday. He generally happens to have poor FH days every 2nd match I’d say. Maybe he should fancy running around it to hit more with his BH.😉
