Alexander Zverev believes he is close to reaching ‘the top of the game’ after another confidence boosting win in Cologne.

Last week Zverev beat Felix Auger-Aliassime in the final of Cologne 1, and he repeated that trick this week by downing Diego Schwartzman to make it a double.

After that match, though while thanking his team for their work, he delivered a warning to his ATP rivals, claiming he feels on the verge of a major breakthrough.

“[Thanks to] everybody who is involved with me and my work,” Zverev said after the match.

“It’s getting better and I think we are going to be on top of the game very soon.”

Zverev nearly had to pull out of Cologne 2 with a hip injury, but scans revealed there was no real damage.

“Two days ago I wasn’t sure if I was going to finish the tournament and now I’m here as a champion so I’m happy I didn’t retire.

“Diego: congratulations for the past few months since the Tour started again.

“I think you’re one of the best players in the world. Making the finals in Rome, semi-finals in Paris and beating top players.”
