Alexander Zverev talking about Federer

Alexander Zverev:
'Federer as coach? We would welcome him but...
Roger Federer acted not only as a player at the Laver Cup but as a coach too. The 19-time Grand Slam champion gave suggestions to his players' Europe team last weekend in Prague, including Alexander Zverev, who appreciated it a lot.
'I think if he [Federer] has the desire to become a coach, then most of the players on Tour wouldn’t say no to using his services and would welcome him', the World No. 4 said during Laver Cup. 'But I don’t know if he is going to become a coach after his playing career ends.’ Federer and Nadal split Grand Slam titles this year, but they are respectively 36 and 31 aged and the future seems bright for Zverev, who wishes to be the next super star in tennis: 'I hope so.
One day those two have to retire, which is unfortunate for all tennis fans. Let's see who is the best then.' This year Zverev became the youngest player since Juan Martin del Potro in 2008 to win four or more titles in the same season. 'It was a pretty decent year for me, but it's not over yet and I hope I can continue to play as good or even better', the 20-year-old Hamburg native said. 'I have already won two Masters.
I think that's a great success. I hope I can win some more titles. If I win [the ATP World Tour Finals] in London it will be my greatest achievement, but until now those two titles this year are my biggest success.'
