Turin – German tennis player Alexander Zverev became the singles winner of the Champions Tour for the second time in his career. In the final, he beat Turin as the third seed over defending champion Ross Daniil Medvedev 6:4 and 6:4. The Olympic champion halted a two-time losing streak of five championships and went on with the overall victory over the Masters of London’s Circuit 02 in 2018.

Zverev’s performance is not to be seen at all, as on Saturday he faces a demanding duel of three hundred in a row with Serbian world unit Novak Djokovic at his feet. The German played as focused as possible, and had the upper hand in the longer exchanges, as he came back. At 1: 1, he grabbed Medvedev’s hand for the first time in the match and turned the break into the first set. Zverev’s blows were of perfect strength and length, and the German, unlike his opponent, made the least amount of unexpected mistakes.

Medvedev had a low percentage of the first serve, after Zverev managed to push him into a defensive position. Immediately at the beginning of the second quarter, the German took the Russian again, after confirming the break, led 2:0 and did not leave a chance to win the sixth title on the ATP circuit this year. At 5:4, turn the first sword ball thanks to the ace. Thanks to Sunday’s victory, he will collect a bonus of $1.095 million, adding 1,300 points to the ATP Entry rankings.

I can’t wait for the new season to start

Zverev responded to Medvedev’s defeat from the main set and ended his nine-game winning streak at the Masters. For the Russians, despite the ultimate failure, this season was the most successful of his career. In September, he won the first Grand Slam title of his career at the US Open after the final victory over Djokovic. And so the Serbian lost the opportunity to equal the record of Australian Rod Laver, who was the last to win all the Big Four events in one year.

“I wasn’t hoping for a nicer point this season. I knew that if I wanted to succeed against Daniele, I would have to show my best in tennis, which I did. I played one of the best matches of my career. I want to enjoy this success with my brother Misha. In the family circle. We will definitely celebrate it. I can’t wait to start the new season. That was great, I won Olympic gold in Tokyo and won the championship in Turin. Congratulations to Danielle on a great season, you beat me five times in a row and won the US Open,” said Zverev, who responded to Medvedev’s defeat from the main set and ended his nine-winning streak at the Masters.
