Alexander Zverev, more commonly known as 'Sascha Zverev' has managed to win his fourth ATP title of the year at the Citi Open, defeating South African Kevin Anderson in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. The match was a quick one, an affair that lasted little over an hour, or to be more precise, 69 minutes.

Zverev is just twenty years old and is already in the top ten in the world. He turned pro in 2014 after being the number one junior's player. In just a few years he has managed to make a name for himself, and become a player that demands respect and attention.

Alexander Zverev has become the youngest player since Juan Martin Del Potro to win four ATP titles in a year.

This year he has won the Open Sud de France, the BMW Open by FWU, the ATP 1000 World Masters in Rome, and now the Citi Open.

Zverev says he has improved a lot in the last few months

Alexander Zverev credits these wins to the improvement that he has shown in his game. He says that he was able to improve and focus on his game 'in the last few months and this off-season.' There were some questions about whether Zverev would be able to perform well, especially because he recently partnered with new coach Juan Carlos Ferrero.

However, things would work out, and the Citi Open would be the first tournament that Zverev wins with Ferrero.

Zverev has strong serves that enable him to take control of his service games easily. He is mostly a baseline player and likes to stand behind the baseline. Luckily, his height gives him the power to dictate points from the baseline.

In the final against Kevin Anderson, Zverev did not face a single break point and managed to break Anderson once each set, which is a big feat in itself, since the South African is also a big server.

Zverev to reach career high ranking of world number 8

With this win at the Citi Open, Alexander Zverev has reached a career high ranking and has the potential to become a big threat at this year's US Open, which begins on the 28th of August.

Zverev will be going into the last Grand Slam of the year with good momentum and confidence after his wins this season.

He is bound to go far in the tournament and is likely to cause some major upsets on the hard courts where his serves are bound to enhance his performance.

Even Kevin Anderson praised the way that Zverev played during the Citi Open finals. He said that he thought Zverev 'served very well,' and that 'it didn't feel like he gave me a whole lot.' Anderson would go on to say that he thought he was playing well too, but that he could not afford to lose two service games to Zverev.
