Newly-crowned Olympic men’s tennis champion Alexander Zverev said yesterday he will not play for Germany in the Davis Cup tournament this November.

After knocking out world number-one Novak Djokovic in the semifinal, Zverev, 24, beat Russia’s Karen Khachanov in straight sets to win the men’s Olympic gold medal in Tokyo earlier this month.

However, he insists he needs a break once the ATP season ends with Germany one of the 18 teams to play in the week-long Davis Cup tournament starting on 25 November.

“I’m only human and I need a holiday. We play from January to October and I won’t play in November,” Zverev told magazine Sports Bild.
