MONTREAL, Aug 14: Alexander Zverev�s hot streak is still alive. Roger Federer�s win streak is over.
The German beat Federer 6-3, 6-4 in the Rogers Cup final yesterday for his 10th consecutive victory.
The 20-year-old Zverev, the winner last week in Washington, DC, matched Federer with a fifth tournament title this year, although two of Federer�s triumphs were at majors. He also stopped Federer�s win streak at 16.
He will try to keep it going at an event in Cincinnati this week.
�It�s something amazing, back-to-back weeks,� said Zverev, who handed Federer only his third loss of the year.
�I feel like I�m playing some of the best tennis of my life. But Cincinnati is a very tough draw. I don�t know if I will be able to go far there because I am a little bit tired. But game-wise and confidence-wise, I�m super happy the way everything is standing.� � AP
