He dutifully shakes hands with fans, patiently writes autographs and is obviously in a good mood. He certainly won’t miss the cracker of Novak Djokovic (36) in the quarterfinals against the Russian Andrey Rublev (25). Above all, he wants to see one: “I’ll be there on Wednesday to see Carlos Alcaraz in person,” he wrote on Instagram.

Alcaraz (20) has to play the same age Dane Holger Rune in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. Since the Spaniard is the big favorite. The fact that he has one more prominent fan will certainly not put any pressure on him.

There is only one he will not see again at the most traditional tennis tournament in the world: his buddy Alexander Zverev (26) of all people. The Olympic champion was knocked out in the third round against Italian Matteo Berrettini (27).

Zverev has often visited Butler at games. Whenever he is in Florida, for example at the Masters in spring, the man from Hamburg also watches games live at the Kaseya Center. Of course in the first row. He was last there on March 22 with girlfriend Sophia Thomalla against the New York Knicks.

Butler was instrumental in helping Miami reach this year’s NBA Finals, where the star squad lost 4-1 to the Denver Nuggets led by another superstar, Nikola Jokic (28).

Zverev and Butler have the next chance to meet again at the US Open at the end of August in New York. There, too, NBA stars are part of the welcome audience. Until then, Zverev is recovering in Monaco and will serve at the clay court tournament in Hamburg on July 25.

Butler, meanwhile, enjoys his time in London with his new favorite player Alcaraz.
