I have to be careful, otherwise it can become dangerous for the future. »

Zverev, who had torn up three external ligaments of the right ankle and was forced to retire during his semi-final at Roland-Garros against Rafael Nadal, seemed ready to resume service, as he had specified on the Davis Cup site on Sunday: ” To be honest, if it was another tournament I probably would have taken a bit more time to prepare, but playing in my hometown of Hamburg is special for me.

Zverev’s withdrawal offers better prospects of victory for the French team, which will challenge Germany on Wednesday, with Adrian Mannarino, Benjamin Bonzi, Arthur Rinderknech, Richard Gasquet and Nicolas Mahut.
