After some great wins, the German, Alexander Zverev, won the Masters in Madrid. Zverev won his fourth Master’s title with 6-7 (8-10), 6-4, 6-3 against the Italian Matteo Berrettini. Zverev converted his second match point on Sunday evening after a contested 2:40 hours on the “Caja Magica” centre court. On his way to the finals, the German defeated Rafael Nadal and then took revenge against Dominic Thiem for his defeat in the US Open final last year.
Against Thiem from Austria, Zverev won with 6:3, 6:4 in just 1:37 hour and Nadal was defeated by the German with 6-4 and 6-4.
Zverev triumphed for the second time in Madrid. His other two Masters titles he won in Rome and Montreal. Overall, Zverev has 15 career titles on the ATP Tour now.
After the match, Zverev said, “It’s been three years since my last Master’s win. It’s an incredible feeling right now.” Next week Zverev will be back on the court in Italy at the Masters in Rome.
It seems that the 24 year’s old German is in top form, just in time before the French Open, which is supposed to start end of May. In the finals in Madrid, he showed a mature performance and proved to stay focused regardless of setbacks.
