Zane Khan: I’m Getting Closer

Young American Zane Khan, who has practiced Roger Federer at Miami Open 2019 and played sets with Feli Lopez, Tommy Paul, Reilly Opelka and Gabriel Garcia Lopez, played his first ATP main tour qualifying match this weekend in Antwerp, Belgium at the European Tennis Open.

Khan, currently ranked 1005 in ATP, was defeated by South African Lloyd Harris 76 62. Khan said after the match: “I wanted to just thank European Open and Tennium for giving me the opportunity to play. I had good chances to close the first (set) and missed out on those. I’m learning at this level there aren’t too many chances and I need to make simpler decisions during the moments when I have chances. I feel I’m getting closer to the level I know I can play at and will get back straight to work to make that happen. Thank you to the people who support me. I’m getting closer.”

The 23 year old Harris is ranked 90 by ATP and his career best ranking was 72 in January.

Khan, based out of Boca Raton, FL and coached by former ATP top 5 Sebastian Grosjean and his uncle Sharif, is still technically a junior at age 18 and ranked second in America and 18 in the world ITF. He was a finalist at 2018 Orange Bowl, losing to Otto Virtanen 75 64.
