The German Alexander Zverev, who advanced to the semifinals of the US Open on Tuesday, declared himself annoyed by the public criticism of his game made by former tennis player Martina Navratilova, who at the same time doubted that he could win the title. "Maybe I should look at my record against the great players," said Zverev, who recalled his four wins over Roger Federer and several more in "important matches" with Novak Djokovic.

"She has won Grand Slams and is a respected champion, but her opinion right now doesn't matter to me," she said. "I'm in the semifinals and sometimes not playing your best tennis and finding a way (to win) is more important than playing your best tennis," added the fifth seed of the tournament.

Navratilova, who is of Czech and American nationality, said Tuesday that Zverev "will not be able to beat the big players if he plays like he did today." "He will have to play as he did in the last set and hopefully better tennis overall," added the former tennis player.

Zverev, who became the first German to reach the US Open semifinals since Boris Becker in 1995 on Tuesday, said he believes he has options to clinch the title. "I think there are many guys who have a lot of chances. I'm in the semifinals so I'm one of those four guys," he said.
