Alexander Zverev has reportedly hired another “supercoach” tapping the now-retired David Ferrer to join his team on a part-time basis.

Zverev, who already went through Juan Carlos Ferrero and Ivan Lendl, will have the 38-year-old Ferrer visit him for a 15-day trial in Monte Carlo.

Ferrer retired last May in Madrid, losing in his final match to Zverev!

Ferrer was considered to be one of the best fighters on the tour. Zverev, meanwhile, is regarded to be on the opposite end of that spectrum. Another area of need for Zverev is help with his serve which was never Ferrer’s forte.

Zverev tested negative for the Coronavirus during Novak Djokovic’s Adria Tour, but after announcing he would self-quarantine for two weeks, the German star drew criticism for being seen partying in public.

If nothing else, Zverev gets to contemplate how far Ferrer would have gone if he had Zverev’s talent to accompany David’s warrior spirit – and of course the converse – how far he can go if he embraces the gladiator somewhere inside him.
Not just look to Ferrer, but Nadal. And how Djokovic 2.0 was mainly Djokovic finding after 4 years of battling Fedal but staying stuck in 3rd place with only 1 Slam – the strength inside to equal and sometimes surpass Nadal in that regard. How Thiem is on the edge of being Djoko and Rafa’s equal in that measure.
It’s also exciting to see some of the players from “The Greatest Generation” (of male tennis players) making the professional transition to new roles.
