US Open sprinter Alexander Zverev defeated Felix Agar-Ali Liasim 6–3, -3- on Sunday. Defeated Cologne to win the ATP title. Third-ranked Agar-Ali Liasim, ranked seventh in the world, lost for the sixth time in a row. “I had a very tough competition in New York and I played the next final here. I want to come out and play my best tennis, I want to finish the match, “said Zverev, 23.
“Felix, you’re an incredible player. I know that doesn’t make much sense right now, but I’m sure you’re not going to win just one medal, you’re going to win multiple, multiple medals in your career,” he added.
The 20-year-old agar-ass Liasim defeated second-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut in the semifinals but failed to replicate his performance against Zverev.
He lost until the final of his first ATP match at the Rio Open in February 201.
“I played badly from start to finish,” Agar-Ali Liasim said.
Zverev will also be a top seed at next week’s Cologne Championships. He joins the draw of French Open semi-finalist Diego Schwartzman and fifth-seeded Agar-Ali Liasim.
