Zverev stuns Stan to win first ATP title!

19 year old Alex Zverev is tipped by many to be one of the next big things on the tour and he has certainly made his mark winning his first ATP title in St. Petersburg against the recent US Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka.

The teenager could not have asked for better start to the final as he quickly broke the Swiss number one and strolled to taking the first set 6-2 against the three time Grand Slam champion however Stan responded as Grand Slam champions do with a quick early break in the second set which set the tone for the rest of the set and going into the final set you’d be silly to go against Stan.

The top seed looked good for going on to claim his 5th title of 2016 going up an early break once again in the final set but there was a little bit of a wobble and Alex got back into the set and remained composed as it neared it’s conclusion and edged past the 31 year old to claim his first of most likely many titles on the tour.

25th of September 2016, remember the date!
