Amilla Fushi, Finolhu to welcome tennis pros Sascha and Mischa Zverev
Amilla Fushi and Finolhu Maldives are set to welcome repeater guest and German tennis pro Alexander ‘Sascha’ Zverev, now ranked world no. 4, back to both islands.
This time, his brother and equally successful tennis player Mischa Zverev joins him on both islands from November 26 to December 3 to demonstrate first hand to Amilla and Finolhu guests what it takes to be winners during a one off exhibition. Guests will also have a chance to learn a thing or two from the brothers with a complimentary one hour tennis clinic at Finolhu.
Sascha Zverev has climbed to the ATP top four since visiting the island last year when he was ranked number 20. He has accomplished an incredible season in 2017 with five titles on the ATP Tour. In May 2017, Zverev entered the ATP top-10 for the first time after defeating Novak Djokovic in the final of the 2017 Italian Open, thus winning his first Masters 1000 title. He won a second consecutive Masters 1000 title when he defeated Roger Federer at the 2017 Canada Masters, eventually reaching his career high ranking of world no. 4.
Mischa, who is currently ranked in the top 30, achieved a career high singles ranking of world no. 25 on July 24, 2017 and beat world no. 1 Andy Murray in four sets at the 2017 Australian Open before losing in the quarterfinals to eventual champion Roger Federer. He has also reached the round of 16 in the last US Open 2017.
Both resorts offer either personal tennis lessons or hitting sessions to guests on either Amilla’s two floodlit tennis courts or Finolhu’s Palm Beach Tennis Court.
Located just 30 minutes by seaplane from the main Velana International Airport, Amilla offers a choice of 59 Houses that sit gracefully over crystal clear waters, nestled amongst lush tree tops or huggin the shores of pristine white sand.
