Tennis – Zverev eyes Grand Slam impact

Rising star Alexander Zverev is determined to make a bigger impact at Grand Slam tournaments in the future, having claimed a fourth title of the season at the Citi Open. The 20-year-old German defeated Kevin Anderson 6-4 6-4 in Washington, continuing his impressive form of 2017, which had already seen him secure tournament wins at the Open Sud de France, the BMW Open in Munich and the Italian Open. However, Zverev believes that there is plenty more to come from him, with a run into the latter stages of a Grand Slam his top priority. His best showing to date at a major came at Wimbledon this year, when he reached the fourth round before being beaten in five sets by 2016 SW19 runner-up Milos Raonic. Zverev told the official ATP Tour website: "The best I've done is fourth round. I know I still have to improve a lot to be able to go far in the big tournaments. "We'll see what the next few big tournaments hold for me. I obviously want to improve as fast and as much as I can until I'm at the top of the game. That's what I'm trying to do." Zverev is priced at 20/1 with bet365 to win the US Open at Flushing Meadows.
