Alexander Zverev wins ATP World Tour finals, beating Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-3 – as it happened
The German 21-year-old won the biggest prize of his career by beating the world no 1 at London’s O2 Arena.
That concludes the tournament and the ATP World Tour for the year. Kevin Mitchell’s report will be here soon but here’s Reuters’ take for now.
LONDON, Nov 18 (Reuters) – An inspired Alexander Zverev beat world number one Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-3 to win the ATP Finals on Sunday – the biggest title of the German’s fledgling career.
The 21-year-old broke serve once in the opening set and three times in the second to pull off a shock victory in a packed 02 Arena – denying Serbian Djokovic a record-equalling sixth title at the ATP’s blue-riband event.
Djokovic is similarly generous to Zverev.
You played much better than in the group stage. You are still quite young and I wish you all the best in the future Hopefully I will play here many more times in the years to come.
