Zverev Accepts Montpellier Wild Card

German to pursue second Montpellier title

Alexander Zverev has accepted a wild card into the Open Sud de France, an ATP 250 held in Montpellier, the tournament announced on social media. The event will be played from 31 January-6 February.

The German will compete in the tournament for the first time since 2017, when he lifted the title in Montpellier. That was the second ATP Tour trophy of his career.

Zverev first played in the Open Sud de France as a 17-year-old in 2015, when he lost in the third round of qualifying. He also made the semi-finals in 2016, and has a 7-1 main-draw record at the event.

The 24-year-old is 5-2 on the season after reaching the fourth round at the Australian Open. Third seed Zverev lost against 14th seed Denis Shapovalov in straight sets.
