Montreal: German star Alexander Zverev crushes Swiss Roger Federer on Sunday with a 6-3, 6-4 win over in the Rogers Cup final in Montreal for his 10th consecutive victory. The 20-yr-old Zverev wins the title and the other Roger Federer’s win streak is over.
Fourth-seeded Zverev, the last week winner in Washington DC, matched the 36-yr-old Federer with a fifth tournament title, even though Federer’s two victories were at majors. He will try to keep it going at an event in Cincinnati this week. Zverev also conveyed that it’s something astonishing, back-to-back weeks, who handed Federer only his third loss of the year.
“I feel great. He avenges a loss to Federer on 25th June at Halle, Germany and evened their career head-to-head record at two victories. The fourth-seeded Zverev triumph $894,585 whereas the second-seeded Federer got $438,635. He escaped a break point at 1-0 in the second set. Third ranked Federer conveyed he only felt “aches and pains” from playing in his first tournament of the hardcourt season, but looked to be more than that. Zverev, the most youthful Rogers Cup finalist since Novak Djokovic in 2007, was falling off an emotional triumph over Canadian youngster Denis Shapovalov in the semi-finals that was seen by some. “I cherished watching Denis play,” Federer said.
“I think he had the matches of the competition, with all these incredible three-setters that he had, particularly the one against Rafa Nadal. “I think he got the consideration of the tennis world, and which is all well and good. Alexander has been around for some time now. I’m quite recently truly cheerful for him, to see that he’s taking everything not simply to the following level, but rather the two next levels, winning two Masters 1000s.
They’re to a great degree hard to win and he’s won two this year.” Federer missed an opportunity to tie Ivan Lendl for second place with 94 profession competition wins. Jimmy Connors leads with 109. He gave no subtle elements of his physical state, yet doesn’t know whether he will play in Cincinnati or spare himself for the U.S. Open, which begins Aug. 28. He will be going for a third Grand Slam title this year, after wins at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.
In the doubles final, fifth-seeded Frenchmen Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut thrashes seventh-seeded Rohan Bopanna of India and Ivan Dodig of Croatia 6-4, 3-6, 10-6.
