Zverev upsets Federer for Rogers title
MONTREAL (AP) Alexander Zverev kept his winning streak alive with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Swiss ace Roger Federer in the Rogers Cup final on Sunday.
The 20-year-old Zverev, the winner last week in Washington, D.C., posted a 10th straight match victory and ended the 36-year-old Federer’s winning streak at 16. The German also tied Federer with a fifth tournament victory this year.
He got even for a loss to Federer at Halle, Germany, on June 25 and evened their career head-to-head record at two wins each.
Zverev used some sharp groundstrokes to keep Federer from taking control early and get the only service break he needed to win the first set.
