While his younger brother is the more well-known, Mischa Zverev has been quietly working his way through the Nature Valley International draw, and despite having notched up 124 tour-level wins in his career, the German has yet to claim an individual title.
He beat Kyle Edmund’s conqueror, Mikhail Kukushkin in straight sets and he will hope it is third time’s the charm as he bids to win his first ATP World Tour hardware.
He said, after the semi-final: “It was close. It was very tight, especially the tie-break in the first set. It was a lot of back and forth and I think I was very fortunate to win that set. It was a very close game, a few points here and there, but luckily I was able to come through.”
His serve volley game famously undid Andy Murray in the fourth round of the Australian Open in 2017 – and was seen as a throwback to an older style but on this surface, he can be especially dangerous. The leftie was the runner-up in Metz (2010) and in Geneva last year as he contests his first final on grass.
He continued: “I like grass. It’s great here, especially the courts here are unbelievable. I’m enjoying myself in Eastbourne.”
