Searching for a Slam

Alexander Zverev has conquered the quarterfinal hurdle in Grand Slam events. Now he just has to win one outright.

The 24-year-old German failed to reach the quarters in his first 11 tries but has since done so in six of his last 12, including the 2021 French Open.

The No. 6 is set to face fifth-seeded Stefano Tsitsipas in the semifinals on Friday in search of his first Grand Slam.

With each victory at Roland Garros, Zverev is adding to his season’s haul. Zverev has made $825,565 for advancing to the semis and can reach $1,694,710 if he takes home the title.

Wins in Acapulco and Madrid boosted the world’s sixth-ranked player to $1,118,245 in 2021 prize money, adding to his $24,464,405 career earnings.

And thanks to endorsement deals with adidas, Head, Peugeot, and Zegna, among others, Zverev has an estimated net worth of $25 million.

He’s +215 to defeat Tsitsipas — and if he does, we’ll see a showdown with the winner of the Novak Djokovic-Rafael Nadal semi. Zverev is +1,200 to win the championship.
