Germany’s Alexander Zverev (DEU) only needed two sets to beat # 1 seed, Stéfanos Tsitipas (GRC) in the Telcel Mexican Open Final in Acapulco.
Zverev, a finalist at the US Open last year, was better overall. He particularly he was very good at playing on the net. A great play was when Zverev jumped into the net and shot to get the point.
In the second set, people cheered for Tsitsipas due to his courage to seek that the match did not end 6-4, as the first one had finished. The Greek saved the championship point and went 5-5.
That 5-5 was very good. The two came to have the upper hand at some point but Tsitsipas took it. The difference of having an audience? Eventually they got 6-6.
Zverev again had the point for the Championship in the tiebreak and after a highly contested point the German managed to get 7-3 to reach 14 ATP Singles Championships.
This is the first time that a German has won the Mexican Tennis Open in men’s Singles.
