Alexander Zverev says defending his ATP Washington Open title on Sunday shows growing in strength and maturity, but the World No. 3 still sees a big gap to Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
The 21-year-old German won his third title of the year and the ninth of his career by defeating Australian teen Alex de Minaur 6-2, 6-4 in the 50th edition of the US Open tune-up event.
“Roger and Rafa are still the best out there and still competing for Grand Slam titles,” he said. “I haven’t won a Grand Slam title.”
In the companion WTA event final, two-time Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova saved four match-points to defeat Croatia’s Donna Vekic 4-6, 7-6 (7), 6-2.
The results (finals):
Men: Alexander Zverev bt Alex de Minaur 6-2, 6-4.
Women: Svetlana Kuznetsova bt Donna Vekic 4-6, 7-6(7), 6-2
