    Points won by each set: | 35-26, 30-17 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    21 % Medvedev – 11 of 51
    21 % Zverev – 12 of 57

    It was extremely difficult to predict such a one-sided encounter of last year’s finalists. Medvedev [2] did his homework and was reading Zverev’s [4] serves like an open book. It’s really amazing that he broke the German four times within 80 minutes despite Zverev’s 77% of first serves in. Zverev was very frustrated and devastated his racquet once he lost his serve at 1-all in the 2nd set. He had won their first four matches, now they’re tied at 5:5 and quite strange that only two tie-breaks were required in 23 sets they have played against each other. “We had a tough match,” Medvedev said. “Sometimes the score doesn’t show exactly what happened on the court. I am happy to have this score, but he had 2:1, 40/15 in the first set on my serve. I think this first break of serve when you play Sascha is really important because he gains confidence. I am really happy I managed to raise my level throughout the match and I didn’t make too many unforced errors.”
