Zverevs Lift Second Team Title In Acapulco
German brothers rally to lift Acapulco trophy
The German brothers rallied from a set down to beat Austin Krajicek and Artem Sitak 2-6, 7-6(4), 10-5 in 90 minutes in a match which finished shortly after 1:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. Alexander and Mischa saved eight of 11 break points and won 67 per cent of first-serve points (31/46) en route to victory.
The unseeded Germans were forced to save three consecutive break points at 3-4 (15/40) in the second set, before capping an impressive week with their second ATP Tour doubles title as a team. Zverev/Zverev lifted their first team trophy at the Open Sud de France in 2017, defeating Fabrice Martin and Daniel Nestor in the chamionship match.
Appearing in his seventh ATP Tour doubles final, Alexander Zverev has now lifted two tour-level doubles crowns. The 21-year-old has contested each of his seven tour-level doubles finals with his brother.
In their first tour-level final as a team, Krajicek and Sitak were aiming to capture their first team title. The unseeded pairing began working together at the Brisbane International in January.
The Zverev brothers gain 500 ATP Doubles Ranking points and split $115,510 in prize money. Krajicek and Sitak receive 300 points and share $56,540.
