Montreal : 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 for his 10th consecutive victory.
The 20-year-old Zverev, the winner last week in Washington, D.C., 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.
“It’s something amazing, back-to-back weeks,” said Zverev, who handed Federer only his third loss of the year. He avenged a loss to Federer at Halle, Germany on June 25 and evened their career head-to-head record at two wins apiece.
