Alexander Zverev continues to diligently collect victories to take part in the ATP Finals in November. The Olympic champion is in the final at the tournament in Chengdu.

Chengdu – Alexander Zverev is in the final of the tennis tournament in Chengdu, China. The Olympic champion won his semi-final against Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrow 6:3, 7:6 (7:2) and is fighting for his second title this year in the final this Tuesday.

At the end of July, Zverev (26) had already won the ATP event in his hometown of Hamburg. The opponent in the final is the Russian Roman Safiullin, who defeated number two seeded Italian Lorenzo Musetti 6:3, 6:4.

“He is a very dangerous player. He occasionally lacks consistency, but here he plays very well all week. So it won’t be easy,” said Zverev, looking ahead to the final.

Best tournament performance

Against Dimitrow, whom he had recently defeated in the third round of the US Open, Zverev showed his best performance of the tournament so far. The $1.15 million event is the first tournament for the German number one since his thigh injury at the US Open. Afterwards, Zverev had to take a short break and also had to cancel his participation in the Davis Cup relegation in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Zverev took the first serve game from the Bulgarian and won the first set with another break. Dimitrow improved in the second round, but was unable to take advantage of his break chances. In the tiebreak, Zverev quickly pulled away and used his first match point after 1:50 hours. “I’m happy that I’m in the final. That’s why I came here,” said Zverev. With this success, the tenth in the world rankings took another step towards the ATP finals in Turin. dpa
