Zverev wins Madrid Open

After the sovereign home victory in Munich, Alexander Zverev also triumphed at the Masters in Madrid. In the final on Sunday evening, the native Hamburger defeated the Austrian Dominic Thiem after 1:18 hours 6: 4, 6: 4 and celebrated the eighth tournament victory of his career. Two weeks before the start of the French Open in Paris Zverev is already in top form.

Thiem had surprisingly finished the winning streak of Spaniard Rafael Nadal on sand in the quarter-finals and thus overthrew the clay court king from the throne. Despite his tournament break, the Swiss roger Federer takes over the leadership in the world rankings again from Monday. Behind the two superstars follows Zverev, who consolidated third place thanks to the 1000 points of Madrid.

In Rome Zverev is defending champion.

At the beginning of April, Zverev had reached the third Masters final of his young career in Miami, and in Madrid he won the third title in the prestigious tournament series following his success in Rome and Montreal in 2017. With a check for 1.19 million euros, Zverev continues to travel to Foro Italico, where he starts in the "Eternal City" as defending champion.

He has won nine matches in a row, only in the first round of Munich, he came in distress. Against Thiem (24 years) Zverev had previously won in five comparisons only once. However, this evening in Madrid, the balance of power turned.
