The German Alexander Zverev (ATP 6) took the final win on Sunday evening at the ATP Masters 1,000 tournament in the Spanish capital Madrid (clay / 2,614,465 euros). In the final he beat Italian Matteo Berrettini (ATP 10) 6-7 (8/10), 6-4 and 6-3. The game lasted 2 hours and 42 minutes.

The first set fully met expectations. Berrettini broke through Zverev’s serve in the seventh game, but he immediately forced the re-break in the next game.

In the second set, both players again kept pace with each other for a long time, until Zverev went through Berrettini’s service at 4-4. The German kept his cool on his own service and tied the score 6-4. In the third and final set, Zverev steamed 6-3 to the overall victory.

For the 24-year-old German, it is the 15th title of his career and the second in Madrid, after an earlier overall victory in 2018. Berrettini is currently stuck on four titles.
