“I am curious to see where I stand with my tennis,” said Zverev.

“I’ve been practicing hard, but it’s going to be my first time playing a competitive event in a long time. It’s going to be exciting to play on two different surfaces in seven days.”

Both the WTA and ATP tours remain suspended until at least July due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Wimbledon having been cancelled for the first time since the Second World War due to the outbreak.
