Alexander Zverev for a second title at the Gonet Geneva Open

Winner of the tournament in 2019, Alexander Zverev (ATP 22) will be one of the headliners of the Gonet Geneva Open which starts this Saturday. The Olympic Champion received the second wild card issued by the organizers. The first was awarded to Grigor Dimitrov (ATP 33).

World No. 2 last year after his semifinal match against Rafael Nadal at the French Open, during which he suffered a serious ankle injury, Alexander Zverev is on his way to returning to his best level. He returns to the Parc des Eaux-Vives in the hope of doing as well as he did four years ago. He won the tournament after a thrilling final against Chilean Nicolas Jarry after having saved two match points.

Alexander Zverev, 26, has won 19 tournaments, including the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and the Masters twice in 2018 and 2021. He was also a finalist at the US Open in 2020.

In addition, the wild card promised to a Swiss player for the qualifying draw went to Jerome Kym (ATP 401). The 20-year-old from Aargau, who was held back by a knee injury for a long time, won his first ITF Tour title in Trento, Italy in early April.
