Alexander Zverev continued his impressive form and his unbeaten run to 11 matches as he brushed aside Rublev in Cincinnati’s men final. After winning a gold medal at the Olympics, this was the second title in a row for the German. The 24-year-old was better during the whole match and won the match in two sets, 6-2 6-3.
This was Zverev’s fifth ATP Masters title and his second this year, which now makes him one of the favourites for the upcoming Grand Slam, the US Open. Just a reminder, the German was last year finalist at the US Open, where he lost against one of the best tennis players on tour Dominic Thiem.
