French Open 2022: Zverev reacts to victory

“I had to play my best tennis. [Alcaraz] kept coming back and he is an amazing player and he will win many times.

“Hopefully I can win before he starts to come back and beat us all.

“When it’s shaded and slower that’s not perfect for me, I didn’t break when it was sunny and the game was going his way.

“I didn’t have to play a match in five sets, or be disappointed to lose a match in five sets like I did last year.”
