Alexander Zverev capped the best season of his career by being named Germany’s Sportsman of the Year.

The German became only the fourth player in event history to defeat the world’s top two players in the FedEx ATP Rankings in the semi-finals and the championship match at the Nitto ATP Finals. The 24-year-old eliminated World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals and then defeated World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev for the trophy, his second at the season finale.

Zverev led all players on the ATP Tour in 2021 with six titles, including his fourth and fifth ATP Masters 1000 triumphs in Madrid and Cincinnati. He also lifted the trophy in Acapulco and Vienna.
