5 things you may not know about Alexander Zverev

Djokovic was in splendid form

"I think it was the best match I've played so far this week - it came at the right time", Djokovic, who has been nearly unstoppable in the second half of the year, said.

The opening eight games resembled a boxing match with both players probing for weaknesses - although it was evident that Zverev's packed the more powerful punches.

"Firstly I want to congratulate Novak and we may never have seen the tennis he has played in the last few months before". But, you know, at the end of the day I said sorry to Roger at the net.

"Oh my God", said Zverev, who also became the first German victor since 1995.

"Obviously the crowd didn't appreciate it, which I was a little bit upset - not upset, but I was a little bit sad at the end with the booing and reaction of the crowd", said Zverev.

Now he has to do this consistently in five-set matches at the Grand Slams.

Earlier, American pair Mike Bryan and Jack Sock saved a match point in the deciding tiebreaker to beat Pierre-Hughes Herbert and Nicolas Mahut 5-7, 6-1, 13-11 for their first ATP Finals doubles title together. Tonight I just wanted to enjoy being out there'.

"Having a Grand Slam so early in the season makes us train probably very hard and be kind of aware that we have to be at our best in the first week of the year", he said. Zverev's affinity for other dogs has been shown on his social channels, referring to one at the Boodles event in June as "my new second best friend".

I said, Did you drop the ball? The eventual tie-break went with serve until the 10th point, when Federer netted to hand Zverev a mini-break - an advantage he did not squander.

I think the time he had off earlier in the year rejuvenated him and made him realise how handsome tennis is and how much he still has to give. You barely lost a match all year though you lost to me.

He said: "A German with a sense of humour who can talk and laugh at himself - a star has arrived". 'You definitely played much better than you had in the group stage.

Djokovic has been in fine form since the start of Wimbledon and his 6-2 6-2 victory in London takes him to 35 wins in his past 37 matches - a run that has brought two grand slam titles and a return to the top of the rankings.

Instead, Anderson battled through a long game and lost his serve straight away, and had to deflect a further couple of break points before losing another game to the relentlessly pressing Djokovic.

Anderson, the first South African to reach the semi-finals in the tournament's 48-year history, simply had no answer to the relentless accuracy of Djokovic's groundstrokes and had to save two break points in his next service game.
