Alexander Zverev has a blow back to Roger Federer
In the ATP tournament earlier this week, Zurab claimed he felt exhausted because the season, which starts in January and ends in November, is too long.
The comments of the German were raised to an experienced Federer campaign last night but he strikes back and insists the players should be grateful for the opportunities they have.
The 20-year-old Grand Slam winner also said the young man complains that he can go on vacation whenever he likes.
But Zorb was not pleased with this side of the argument, and he was enthusiastic about the response and said the Swiss star protected only ATP because it lived under different rules.
"Roger is older, so he has different rules than the ATP, he can skip two Masters, he does not have to play all 500 events," Zorob said.
"I have to play all four Grand Slams, all nine Masters, and I have to play four 500 events out of it. Actually I even played at the 250 event.
"I also talked, it's not about the amount of tennis we play within that year, it's how long we have the.
"Even if you do not play for a week in a tournament, you can not take it this week. You have to be coaching, you should be Preparing.
Federer defended the 11-month non-stop season
"My argument is that we do not have time to prepare. I mean, we finish it, we go on a 10-day vacation, and then we practice for two weeks, and then we go to Australia.
"It's more my thinking behind it, that's not the point Quantity Of the matches we play within these weeks, it's more about how much turned off This time we can really.
"Because we can not get the time during the season, we can not say," Okay, I'm going to take two weeks off, going to the Maldives in July. "It's not how it works.
"You have to be trained, you have to be prepared, and also, the physical part, you can not do heavy training during the season. The off season is the only time you have time to prepare yourself.
Zorov says that Djokovic is also not happy with the timing of the tennis
"If you ask Novak, I had a talk with Novak, he agrees with me, he thinks so in the last ten years, but he never talked about it.
"Now, when actors enter the subject, it is also louder.
"As I said, we do not have time to prepare, so the body, mental wise, also do not have time to give ourselves rest.
"That you can really do during the off-season, not when there is Other tournaments where you do not play. "
Zverev would have liked more time to rest between the seasons
Federer will finally have finished the ATP hearts of believers in their mouth when he stated how he could go from the tournament at any moment.
"The good thing is that we as players are not employed by the club, I can now go outside the door and go to If I want to, "he said.
"No one will stop me, they will not like it, but I can, it is a great privilege, in my opinion, of a tennis player.
"I think we've done a good job from a player's point of view to understand that it's not something we do, out of respect for fans, tournaments, sponsors, etc., and just the perfection of the game.
"here Two ways to look at it. One, that's nice there is So many tournaments. When you are injured, not like skiing, you are going to miss the whole season. Another way, it would be amazing to have five months to work on your game.
"You can really maximize the player you are, the potential you have. Obvious With the little time we have, there is just so much you can do.
"Both are positive and negative, but the way the tour is built now, I just think you have to be very disciplined within the team to decide what is best for this player, the player should also give his opinion.
"It's a complicated one, but a good one because we have a lot of tennis highlights that we really can not complain about."
