Zverev Out of Davis Cup

By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Tuesday September 13, 2022

Flushing Meadows, NY— A month ago it appeared that Alexander Zverev’s comeback from ankle surgery might be a bit ahead of schedule.

Now, after the German has pulled out of Davis Cup, it may be behind.

The German experienced significant pain in his left ankle while training for Germany’s appearance in the group stage of the Davis Cup by Rakuten Finals.

"I guess I did too much and now I'm in extreme pain," said Zverev, who said that even walking was causing him discomfort. "I need to be sensible, otherwise it could be dangerous for the future."

The 25-year-old isn’t sure if he’ll be able to make a return by the end of the 2022 season.

"We're talking about weeks, and in all likelihood months,” he said.
