    Points won directly behind the serve:

    36 % Rublev – 20 of 36%

    Zverev’s [5] second consecutive big title after the Gold medal in Tokyo and a similar final. Rublev [7] couldn’t deal with a powerful serve of his peer. “The first win I ever had on these courts was on Wednesday, four days ago, and now I have my first title here,” Zverev said in his on-court interview. “It has been an incredible week, a lot of great matches. It is an incredible feeling going into the US Open.” Zverev had lost all his six Cincinnati matches prior to 2021!

    Zverev’s route to his 17th title:
    2 Lloyd Harris 7-6(3), 6-2
    3 Guido Pella 6-2, 6-3
    Q Casper Ruud 6-1, 6-3
    S Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(4)
    W Andrey Rublev 6-2, 6-3

    # Zverev trailed 1:4* (30/40) in the 3rd vs Tsitsipas, two points away from defeat at 3:5
