It has been a long road back to full fitness for Alexander Zverev but eight months on from his nasty ankle injury at the French Open, the German is moving in the right direction.

His 6-4, 6-1 win over Stan Wawrinka in the Davis Cup qualifier on Friday was only his second win since his return, pulling Germany level at 1-1.

And Zverev looked much more like his old self as he saw off the 38-year-old Wawrinka for the fifth time in six meetings.

“Obviously I’m very happy with my game,” Zverev said,quoted on the Davis Cup website. “I think that was the best match since my injury. It’s going in a positive way and I hope I can continue progressing.”

“I think I played a lot more aggressive and maybe Stan’s spirit went down a little bit, but in the end I picked up my level and I’m very happy with that.”
