German tennis star Alexander Zverev had a meltdown during his recent match against Stefanos Tsitsipas at the inaugural ATP Cup 2020 in Brisbane on Sunday. In the second set, Zverev was heard berating himself after committing a double fault. The German lost to his arguably his fiercest NextGen rival, Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas 1-6, 4-6. His lack of form led to his German coach Boris Becker offering him some on-court advice. However, a frustrated Alexander Zverev just yelled. He was heard swearing in helplessness with the f*** word as he was not able to serve properly. The German implored Becker to tell him what was needed to do to improve his performance.
