In the first edition of the tournament played in Italy, in Turin, the German avalanche on the number 2 in the world who surrenders in two sets. For Sascha it is the 2nd title of the Finals
Music, Maestro! Alexander Zverev is the first champion of the Nitto Atp Finals played at the Pala Alpitour in Turin. Sascha, completely dismantling Daniil Medvedev’s game he graduated champion of the Nitto Atp Finals with a double 6-4. His is the tournament reserved for the 8 best players of the year. For him it is the second time in his career after the first in 2018.
Relentless and impeccable German, especially in service with an average of prime time (86%) that goes over 200 km per hour and Russian in great difficulty both in response and in service. He looks like another player compared to the one he lost to the Russian in the group. First set with Medvedev who is struggling to get into the game, not very incisive in the exchange against the rival who really does not miss anything. Forward like a train Sascha stealing the serve from the number 2 in the world in the 3rd game and keeps the advantage until the end, including the opportunity of another break in the 9th game thwarted by Daniil. The first set ends 6-4 for the number 3 in the world who this year has already beaten Novak Djokovic twice, in the semifinal of the Tokyo Olympics and yesterday in the semifinal at Pala Alpitour.
Second set that starts very badly for the US Open champion who with a double fault and a forehand error immediately delivers to the rival who rises 2-0. In the 6th game a hint of reaction from the Russian who on 30-30 has to respond to a second from Zverev but firing the cue on the upper floors of the Olympic building. It still goes to the advantages but it is always the very solid boy from Hamburg who prevails. The game does not come off the script: Zverev pulls like a locomotive, Medvedev struggles. Thus ends 6-4 6-4.
