The Masters of the Season Finals kicks off this week in Turin, and the favorite to win it is definitely Novak Djokovic.

The world’s best tennis player put in a fantastic show for the tournament in Italy, winning the Masters in Paris last weekend, and he wants to continue harvesting the trophy next week.

One of Djokovic’s main competitors on the way to this goal, along with defending champion Danilo Medvedev, will be Olympic champion from Tokyo, Alexander Zverev.

On the eve of the tournament in Turin, the German tennis player spoke at a press conference about the new generation of tennis players who are slowly playing an increasingly important role on the stage. When asked if it would be a good idea for tennis to have some young players take the lead this year, Zverev answered in the affirmative.

– Yes I think so. But first, we’re not young anymore. We are 23, 24, 25 years old. He is not young. Alcaraz is young, in my opinion a young player – Zverev started his introduction.

He added that the “old guard” of tennis players, including Novak Djokovic, had been significantly slower to break through than younger players on the tennis court.

Yes, we have taken a step forward this year. All the young players won the Masters tournaments, with the exception of Rome and Paris. My victory in the Olympics was a message, and I think Medvedev’s victory in the US Open was a message as well. Zverev noted that younger players are progressing, and this is normal.

In the end, the German confirmed that Djokovic is deservedly the best player in the world.

– Among the four best players Novak, who deserved the best in the world. If you win three grand slams, you should be number one. Then there’s Daniel (Medvedev), me and Stefanos (Sebas). The top 10 players are getting older and I think that’s good for our sport – Alexander Zverev concluded.
