Points won by each set: [ 30-24, 31-25 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
31 % Zverev – 17 of 54
26 % Thiem – 15 of 56

Two identical sets between the two most promising players born in the 90s – the four years older Zverev [3] broke in opening games of both sets (he also had a break point at 2:0 in the 2nd set). “Hopefully I can continue this kind of streak in Rome,” said the champion who wasn’t broken throughout the week. “Winning two titles in two weeks is great. Winning a Masters is unbelievable. But before the French Open, there’s still Rome where I’m the defending champion.” Zverev lost the Roman final two weeks later though… for Thiem [7] the Madrid final meant his second straight loss at this stage in the Spanish capital.

Zverev’s route to his 8th title:
2 Evgeny Donskoy 6-2, 7-5
3 Leonardo Mayer 6-4, 6-2
Q John Isner 6-4, 7-5
S Denis Shapovalov 6-4, 6-1
W Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-4
