Showing a great level of play and a very good mental attitude, German Alexander Zverev beat Serbian Novak Djokovic in two sets to be crowned champion in the Finals of the ATP, which were played in London.
Zverev, 21 years old, overcame a defeat to "Nole" in the group stage to not leave him any options in the final game of the tournament, which would end up being imposed with sets of 6-4 and 6-3.
With the number one position in the world insured for the end of the season, Djokovic wanted to close with a flourish the year of his return to tennis elite, but a boy ten years younger than him would be responsible for making him bite the dust.
For this he would do something that nobody else could do during the week: break the Serbian’s service, which has become his most powerful weapon after his elbow operation, since he has chosen to use a lighter racket and Make specific routines for that aspect of the game.
This Sunday, Zverev did not waste the four opportunities he had to break Djokovic’s service, appealing to attack the player born in Belgrade, and then finish him off with his own serve, with which he managed to impose up to 10 aces.
Alexander Zverev wins his fourth title of the season, after taking the trophies in Munich, Madrid and Washington, and closes the season as the top winner with 58, four more than the Austrian Dominic Thiem and five more than Djokovic himself.
More importantly, with the victory he ends up confirming that there is emerging talent that should not be lost sight of, capable of defeating players with much more experience than them, such as Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.
