We could watch an interesting match in the ATP Madrid final. Zverev managed to beat Berrettini with the result: 2: 1 (6: 7, 6: 4, 6: 3) Berrettini played great in the first set and seemed to be well on his way to winning the title, yet Zverev woke up in the continuation of the match and managed to turn the match in his favor.
Zverev won the 15th title in his career and will now have the additional motivation and additional self-confidence in the rest of the season “It’s great, especially as I lost my last two Masters 1000 finals,” Zverev said, as quoted by tennismajors “I just want to enjoy this one.
“I didn’t play someone this week who can serve (like Berrettini) so it was definitely a different match. I’m extremely happy right now. I feel awesome”. He thinks that it is very important to play well during the clay-court season and that this trophy will really help him to play better in the next tournaments.
“It’s extremely important,” he said. “I think the clay-court season, also to do well at the French Open, you need to be playing well during the clay-court season. That is in a way important for me, as well.
" "At the end of the day, I won a Masters. There’s really very little in terms of bigger than this one right here. I’m happy. I’m happy with this achievement." "Obviously, yeah, I look forward to the next few weeks.
I look forward to what’s ahead”.
Berrettini on his match
Berrettini praised his opponent after the match and seems to have mixed emotions regarding this final I’d like to congratulate Sascha, another unbelievable week,” Berrettini said.
“I think we played a great fight. It’s tough. This sport is crazy because it’s actually a really good moment of my career but at the same time it’s not that great because I lost”. Berrettini is obviously dissatisfied with his game and believes that he could have done more, but this will still be a great experience for him.
“Now that I’m here, I’m upset I lost,” he said. “It’s important for my tennis, for my level. We spoke with my team. We figured it out, I mean, Sascha won not easy but like in two sets against Thiem and Rafa, and today was struggling against me.
This is definitely a good feeling and something that I have to use to build in my future tournaments, next tournaments. It hurts now, but I know this loss is going to be useful”.
