Mischa Zverev explains why Andy Murray & Novak Djokovic are facing injury problems Zverev explains why Andy Murray & Novak Djokovic are facing injury problems

Mischa Zverev believes more and more players are getting injured as a result of playing good tennis for many years at the top level & this is the basic reason for Andy Murray & Novak’s injury problems.

Murray and Djokovic, both 30, have missed the final Grand Slam of the year through hip and elbow injuries, with the latter opting to skip the rest of the 2017 season.

Other players like Stan Wawrinka, Milos Raonic and Kei Nishikori are also missing out. Zverev claims it could be because of their bodies breaking down from too much game time.

Nadal, 31, has struggled with injuries throughout his career, with knee problems particularly blighting him.

But Zverev is feeling fit and fresh despite being 30 himself and he puts it down to his late rise towards the top of tennis

When asked about the high numbers of withdrawals ahead of the US Open, Zverev said: ‘A lot of players are injured because many of them played really good tennis for so many years.

‘Let’s say almost every week they were the favorites to win the tournament, went deep into the draw. I feel like a body can break down no matter how well you take care of it, how much you train. I think it’s human.

‘Looking at Novak, he played unbelievable tennis the last couple years. Looking back maybe a couple years ago, it was Rafa and Roger. People were like, Oh, maybe they’re too old, maybe they’re not good enough or strong enough.

They took some time off. They got healthy again. Now they’re playing really good tennis. Maybe it’s time for Novak and Andy to do something similar. You never know.

‘Let’s say I’m 30 years old, but I feel like I definitely have less mileage on my body than someone like Novak or Rafa. We’re pretty much the same age.

‘They’ve played so many matches over the last five years. I haven’t been doing too, too well.’
