The game lasted 80 minutes. Only 21 years old, Zverev became the third German in history to win the championship.

It was proved by his compatriots Boris Becker (1988, 1992, 1995) and Michael Stich (1993). The fifth player in the world won his tenth title in the circuit.

Djokovic did not reach Federer

Djokovic did not get a chance to reach the number of triumphs in the final of the Swiss Cup of Roger Federer, which so far has produced a record of six.

However, Marián Vajda's assailant will end the year as a world unit. The fourteen Grand Slam championships won in 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Zverev showed a performance in the finals and in the first session he lost only four balls.

The Serbian did not have the chance to reach the brejkbal, on the contrary, in the ninth game in the 4: 4 game offered an opponent and the opportunity immediately took advantage.

The German in the next game became the second setball. For Djokovic, it was the first set lost in the tournament.

He retired from the group.

Djokovic started his second race again, but he lost the service again, but he did a reprise.

Zverev immediately took his opponents to the tretice in the game and after confirming the interval, he won 3: 1.

He had already scored until the end of the duel, when Srba did not even have a chance to deal. In addition, 5: 3 was able to present again the opponent and took advantage of his second mechballa.

Thus, Djokovic paid a soft loss in two sets of the group. On the throne of the Turnaja champions, he was replaced by the late Bulgarian champion Bulhar Grigore Dimitrova.
