2017 Rogers Cup in Montreal has come to an end, and it is Alexander Zverev who can sit for a moment and celebrate another thundering success. It's the second Masters 1000 title of the year that the young German has put in his back pocket after the first triumph of this kind earlier this year in Rome over Novak Djokovic. The men's singles final in Montreal is also the place where Roger Federer's winning streak came to an end. The 36-year-old Swiss player hadn't lost a match since Stuttgart back in June gathering 16 wins in a row. It's Federer third defeat of the year and the moment that can establish Alexander Zverev as a top ATP player.

Zverev dispatched Federer in straight sets 6-3 6-4

Entering the encounter, Federer was leading by 2-1 in head to head stats. The final outcome makes it 2-2 with Alexander Zverev delivering a compelling win over Federer. While the young German had his plans made from the beginning, on the other side, Roger Federer seemed a bit deflated throughout the encounter. His shots selection was nowhere near the potential and on top of that, he had some issues with his serve too. It was all that Zverev needed who earlier this year lost the final in Halle to the same guy. One break per set was enough for Zverev who seemed always in control of the match. There were some opportunities for Federer too, especially at the start of the second set.

But, whether it was an unforced error or just Zverev having a great day, it didn't come out as expected with Federer being left without any viable solution. In the end, it was a straight sets victory for the young tennis superstar that extends his winning streak. Last week he was triumphant in Washington at City Open. The North American outdoor hard session is helping him to pick a slot in the upper drawer for the upcoming US Open.

Federer lost the chance to get close to the world No. 1 spot, Zverev keep climbing up

Losing in Montreal, Roger Federer didn't only lose his sixth title of 2017, but the chance to get just behind Rafael Nadal too. That means, the next week in Cincinnati he will see his chances getting smaller in that world No. 1 race. On the other side, Zverev is now ranked seventh in the world, and another triumphant run in Cincinnati may put him in the top 5 before US Open. In ATP Race (2017 ranking only), the 20-year-old is ranked third behind Federer and Nadal. In about few weeks, at Flushing Meadows, a brand new ATP superstar and future leader can be born.
