Zverev looking forward to seeing Thiem again on return to action at Diriyah Tennis Cup: "We haven’t seen each other for almost two years now"

Alexander Zverev will take part in the Diriyah Tennis Cup in Saudi Arabia as will Dominic Thiem and the German is excited to see him there.

Zverev and Thiem are great friends and they contested the US Open final a few years ago when Zverev lost a 2-0 lead to Thiem for whom that is his only grand slam triumph. Both have struggled with injuries lately albeit Thiem was able to get back to a solid level in recent weeks.

For Zverev that struggle is coming up in the next few months with the exhibition in Saudi Arabia his first stop. He is excited:

“I’m just looking forward to being back on court being back on a competitive court because it’s been a very long time for me. The best players in the world are there so it’s gonna be high level tournament and I think everybody’s in form because they’re still either coming from Davis Cup or they just came from the ATP Finals so everybody will still be playing great tennis and I hope I can keep up with them.”

He's also excited to see Thiem again:

“I’ve also missed those guys to be honest even though we’re competitors but I have great friends there as well. You know, I missed seeing those guys on tour. I feel like me and Dominic, we haven’t seen each other for almost two years now because he was injured 2021 And I was injured to the 2022. So we missed each other in a way."
