Kevin Anderson ran out of fuel and ideas against Zverev

The 31-year-old South African who once was a top 10 player had no chance against his much younger opponent. The encounter was all about Zverev and his tremendous pace. Once again, the young player made no mistakes on his own serve providing no back doors for his opponent to infiltrate. On the other side, Anderson struggled with his serve mostly due to the depth of Zverev's returns. The final score was 6-4 6-4 for the German tennis star who only needed to break Anderson once in each set. Facing no break points at all on his own delivery, he raced to his outdoor hard title of his career. It might be just the beginning as Rogers Cup, Cincinnati and US Open all lie down ahead.
