Zverev’s performance in Nadal’s homeland was perfectly mastered. The German did not concede a set during his Madrid week. For Alexander Zverev, «Rafa is still the man to beat and the big favorite for Roland Garros». At the age of 21, Zverev together with Rafael Nadal who is world No. 2, are a strong double act in the Richard Mille family. His victory against Thiem was like a revenge match as it reduced the gap in the number of victories between the two players (4 wins for the Austrian player against 2 for the German player).

It’s in the best possible way to start his season on clay, especially with his new RM 67-02 Automatic on his wrist. After two victories in two weeks, Zverev became the youngest winner of the tournament since Rafael Nadal who won it at the age of 19.
