Sascha Zverev, king of the new tennis

by archysport

The new tennis has some fast food.

It is as bland as it is impersonal. The game runs so much, and offers so few nuances, that the observer has a hard time describing it. Gunboats are nearly two meters tall, they serve fast and very hard. It is hard to remember an exchange, a specific moment. There are hardly any breaks, there are hardly any long rallies. Now that he loses rope Big Three (Djokovic, Federer and Nadal), the times of Sascha Zverev and Daniil Medvedev dawns.

Either of them can take the victory, as even as they are, and the duel depends on the state of inspiration of one or the other, more than ever.

As the angles are opened, as both Medvedev and Zverev serve, the average-sized athlete can do little.

It is the age of the giants.

In the world of new tennis, Sascha Zverev (24), Olympic gold medalist at Tokyo 2020, is better at handling this Sunday at the Pala AlpiTour Arena in Turin.

Among other reasons, because Daniil Medvedev (25) manifests physical discomfort and never enters the game, he does not even have time to do so, since the final, the title of the masters’ tournament, is dispatched in 1h15m (double 6-4).

Definitely, Zverev (current 3rd racket) is coming strong.

He no longer hesitates in match openings, does not award free points, or reluctantly advances, handing over the first set and compromising a victory. Now he has a pedigree, resources, and a great starter – bad news for those who want to stop him.

Novak Djokovic, his victim in the semifinals of the Tokyo Games, and also in the semifinals of the masters’ tournament, begins this Saturday.

Not bad, that of going on vacation with this victory; but as this is going, I should already start thinking about the next season “

And this time it is suffered by Medvedev (currently 2nd racket in the world, masters champion in 2020), a lost player in this final that flies away.

Everything is dominated by Zverev, who is confidence and instinct: he relies on his right and his serve, as efficient (80% of his first serves go inside) as suffocating: he signs eight aces, for the scarce three of the Russian, who does not glimpse not a single break point.

“I was looking for the perfect match and it came out,” says Zverev later, generally taciturn and serious, more smiling than usual: he accumulates his sixth title in 2021 and takes the 59th victory of the year, more than any other tennis player, Djokovic included.

(In social terms he is not doing so well: the ATP investigates Zverev for mistreatment of his ex-partner, Olga Sharypova).
