First led Matteo Berrettini, in the final this Sunday in Madrid, Alexander Zverev was able to reverse the match to win (6-7, 6-4, 6-3). This is his second title in Madrid.
Alexander Zverev had experienced some disappointments in recent weeks since his title in Acapulco in March. However, he ended the bad series by winning the final of the Masters 1000 in Madrid, this Sunday against Matteo Berrettini. The German won in three sets (6-7, 6-4, 6-3).
Everything could have turned out badly for Zverev, led in the first set and who took a long time to gain the advantage in the second, facing a confusing Berrettini who had never reached a final in such a big tournament. But the world n ° 6, little by little, was able to turn the game around, ending up with a double break in the third and last set.
A big week eliminating Nadal and Thiem
Zverev, with this victory, takes his second title in Madrid and his fourth Masters 1000 of his career. Two weeks before the start of Roland Garros, the German made an impression this week by eliminating Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem on their preferred surface.
At Roland Garros, Zverev, however, will advance with some doubts. He never reached the last four of the tournament and was surprisingly eliminated against Sinner last year. This new title in Madrid must take him to another dimension on clay.
