This Russian just defeated tennis superstar Roger Federer

Alexander Zverev stuns Roger Federer to win Rogers Cup title.

Young German Alexander Zverev kept his winning streak alive with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Roger Federer in the Rogers Cup final last Sunday.

The 20-year-old Zverev, the winner last week in Washington, posted a 10th straight match victory and ended the 36-year-old Federer’s own winning streak at 16. The German also tied Federer with a fifth tournament victory this year, although Federer’s haul includes two major titles. Zverev also got even for a loss to Federer at Halle in June and leveled their career head-to-head record at two wins each.

If the name Zverev doesn’t sound particularly German, it’s because it is not.

Both his parents, Alexander Sr. and Irina are former Russian tennis players, with his father having competed professionally for the Soviet Union. Zverev’s older brother, Mischa, is also a professional tennis player.
