London (AP) – After his emotional semifinals he wins against Roger Federer Alexander Zverev wants to host his successful week at ATP finals in London with the biggest title of his career so far.
With the end of the tennis season, he meets the German number one on Sunday (19.00) in the final of the Serbian World Ranking first Novak Djokovic"Of course this will be a difficult task again. Novak is currently the best player in the world," Zevev said before the final.
Zverev must also have edited the events that surround Federer's game until the world's number one player. Because a boy with a ball in the draw of the second set with a 3: 4 score in Zeev's view threw the pocket in the middle of the match, the 21-year-old had rightly protested, so the point had to be repeated. Federer complained to the referee, but the decision was right. In the repeat of the ball change, Zverev reached the point and a bit later the surprise with 7: 5, 7: 6 (7: 5) perfect.
In the next winners' interview, some viewers who had previously backed Federer whistled to the Germans. "Of course, this was not an easy situation," said Zevrev, who quickly went to the hotel after the game to play on the Playstation and retrieve the incidents during a massage.
But even if he misses the final on Sunday, Zverev can already look back on a big financial situation. As the first German since Boris Becker 22 years ago he is in the final of the ATP final. Becker had lost in 1996 in Frankfurt to Main in the final against Pete Sampras from the United States. Last year, the German tennis idol had won the prestigious event as the last German to date. In addition to Becker, only one other German succeeded Michael Stich (1993). "Big sport today against Roger," tweeted Becker on Saturday.
"Of course I'm very proud to be in the final," said Zvev. "My team and I worked very hard for it." In the last game of the year, he wants to take everything out of himself again, because the time after that has been longing for weeks. "Either victory or defeat – then he goes on vacation."
