Mexico City, November 15, 2023 – There is no doubt that Alexander Zverev is a star on the court, with 21 titles on the ATP circuit at the age of 26; however, he also has an altruistic facet.
In August 2022, the Hamburg-born tennis player created his foundation to support children suffering from type 1 diabetes and prevent more people from being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, driven mainly because “Sascha” himself has suffered from this disease (type 1 diabetes) since he was 4 years old.
Tuesday, November 14 marked World Diabetes Day, a date established since 1991 by the World Health Organization (WHO), and to remember this date the German tennis player uploaded a video to his Instagram account sending a motivational message for people who have been diagnosed with this condition to break their own limits and obstacles to achieve their dreams.
If we are talking about complex moments, this 2023 has not been easy for Zverev in the sporting arena, as an ankle injury kept him out of the circuit for almost seven months. After recovering, he returned to the Top 10 of the ranking and was able to compete in the ATP Finals in Turin, Italy, at the end of the year.
Throughout this 2023, the German tennis player overcame his injury and overcame his own limits, as the motto of his foundation says: “The only limit is the one you set for yourself”.
He won two tournaments that helped him climb up the rankings and regain his rhythm of play, the first one in his hometown in Hamburg during the summer, and the second title he won in Chengdu, China last September.
Surely in the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2023 we will see a “Sascha” eager to add more titles and overcoming his own limits on the court, as well as promoting his initiatives with his Alexander Zverev Foundation.
