Both the brothers have been coached by their father, who was once ranked no.1 in his country. Both the brothers represent Germany on international stages, having been raised there for the majority of their lives.

Alexander is yet to win any Grand Slam tournament since his debut in 2015 but his strive to gain the title never goes off.

He lost in the 2020 Australian Open semi-finals & in the 2020 US Open Finals, both to Dominic Thiem.

Though, it has not been fruitful to him yet- lost in the second round of the Australian Open to Michael Mmoh & got knocked out by Carlos Alcaraz in Madrid Open.
