Alexander Zverev confirmed Wednesday that he has started a coaching trial with former World No. 3 David Ferrer.
"Some good news: I am going through a trial period with David Ferrer on my team. Could not be more excited to get to work," Zverev wrote on his Instagram story. "Can't wait for the Tour to be back."
The German has previously worked with former World No. 1s Ivan Lendl and Juan Carlos Ferrero. Ferrer retired last season after losing against Zverev in the second round of the Mutua Madrid Open.
"He's the most respectful guy for me on Tour, and one of the most loved people on the Tour as well," Zverev said at the time. "We're going to miss him."
Ferrer became known as one of the hardest workers on the ATP Tour. The relentless baseliner’s final Top 10 win came last March, when he rallied to beat Zverev in three sets at the Miami Open presented by Itaureadfullarticle
