Alexander Zverev was not the favorite in the 2021 ATP Finals. In the group stage he scored two wins – with Matteo Berrettini and Hubert Hurkacz – and lost to Danio Medvedev. Then, in the semi-finals, he presented a surprise and defeated Novak Djokovic.
In the final, Germany faced Medvedev again. And paid the Russian failure five days ago. He played an excellent match and won 6:4, 6:4.
For Zverev, this is his second ATP Finals title. He won the previous title in 2018, defeating Djokovic in the final. He equaled the achievements of Bjorn Borg and Leighton Hewitt with two victories.
The tennis player from Hamburg climbed to eighth place of all time. Roger Federer is the leader – a six-time ATP Finals champion. Ivan Lendl, Pete Sampras and Novak Djokovic took second place by virtue of justice – with five titles each.
Zverev also became the fourth tennis player to win the ATP Finals at least twice in the 21st century. He joined Federer (six wins this century), Djokovic (five) and Hewitt (two).
