‘I feel awesome!’ – Alexander Zverev likes his Roland Garros chances after Madrid title

Alexander Zverev says his Madrid Masters final win over Matteo Berrettini has left him feeling ‘awesome.’

The German was made to work hard for the title, with Berrettini winning the first set on a tiebreaker.

However, Zverev’s head did not drop, and he slowly wrestled back control of a titanic clash of the two big servers to win his fourth Masters crown.

“At the end of the day I won a Masters,” Zverev said. “There’s really very little in terms of bigger than this one right here.

“I’m happy with this achievement. Obviously I look forward to the next few weeks. I look forward to what’s ahead.”

What’s ahead is first the Rome Masters this week and then the French Open, and Zverev believes the importance of momentum heading into a Grand Slam.

“Rome is also an event I like and enjoy,” Zverev said. “So I hope I can perform [in] the same way as I did here and we will see how it goes there. I feel awesome.

“To do well at the French Open, you need to be playing well during the clay-court season. That is in a way important for me, as well.”

Zverev’s title in Madrid was his second in the tournament, with his other Masters successes coming in Canada and Rome, both in 2017.
