The 21-year-old German player Alexander Zvere won the Madrid Open last night. World No. 3 Zverev also succeeded to win his third masters title by beating Austrian Dominic Theim in the Madrid Open Final.
Alexander Zverev defeated the world No. 7 D. Theim in straight sets 6-4, 6-4. Austrian Theim was not in control against Alexander, hence Zverev comfortably won the title by a wide range of shot selection in every corner of the court.
Theim, who defeated World No. 1 Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals of the tournament, had won the four of the last five meetings against Zverev. But this time in the Madrid Masters final, Zverev turned the records around.
The German never faced single break point in the entire tournament is now eyeing to the French Open which will start from 27th May. He will also have chance to defend his Rome Masters Title this week.
Talking about the victory Zverev said, “Hopefully I can continue this kind of streak in Rome.”
“Winning two titles in two weeks is great. But Winning a Masters is unbelievable. Before French Open, there’s still Rome where I’m the defending champion.”
“Obviously, I didn’t face single break point in final but I don’t think I faced break points in the whole tournament. For me, this is an amazing start to know in the back of my mind.” He added.
