Older Brother Gets The Spotlight

WEEK:  10.17.2016

Mischa Zverev, the older brother of Alexander Zverev, gets the honors of mover of the week by virtue of his stellar performance at the Shanghai Rolex Masters tournament.  He made it all the way to the quarterfinals, his second time to the quarterfinals of a Masters 1000 event. The last time was in 2009, which was also the same year he reached his career high of 45. He took the first set from the world’s number one player, Novak Djokovic, and came so close to defeating him and getting to his first semifinals of a Masters 1000 event.  Zverev will want to continue to build on this form going forward and hope to bring it in 2017 as well.
