Alexander Zverev sends message to Novak Djokovic after ATP Final win

Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev

Alexander Zverev hailed Novak Djokovic after defeating him to win the AP Finals at The O2.

The German produced some of his best tennis of the year to overcome the world number one in straight sets and become the youngest world tour winner in a decade.

He, though, was keen to acknowledge how special a season Djokovic has enjoyed after injury.

“Right now, I really can’t describe it,’ he said on court after the match.

“I want to congratulate Novak on a great week again and not only this week but how we played the second half of this year, we maybe have never seen it before, I mean, you barely lost a match.

“I’m very thankful you lost one to me today.

“Everybody knows how good of a tennis player you are but I want everybody to know what a good person you are.

“Obviously you could win any match you want. I appreciate you letting me win one today.”
