Where has this Sascha been all year? Big clean serving and solid hitting off the ground. He also hit a few for the highlight reel. Didn't see that coming. Out of the 4 matches so far in the YEC, only Djokovic - Berrettini turned out the way people expected it to. ;)

Nadal? He was like MTF after the site update today. He had a bland, white look and was full of unforced errors.

Zverev too good for Rafa today :D

An important implication of this result, as far as the race for YE #1 is concerned, is that Djokovic once again controls his own destiny.

Zverev hasn't won anything of significance in so long that I completely forgot about his obnoxious celebrations.. but congrats i guess

Better indoor hard court player won. Big serving, good playing from Zverev as he tries to defend his title.

Rafa, he is clearly not right with the abdominal, sure he was serve botting but his FH rotational was severely lacking. Some of those errors should not be missed by that much.

We will see if Rafa pulls out or if he can bounce back but we will see what's going on

"Dismisses,"... as if lol. All credit to Zverev, but you can hardly call this match legitimate, considering. Nadal hasn't fully recovered from winning the USO, plus a hangover from his wedding, plus he's injured. Really shouldn't have played this tournament at all, really. ?

Nadal far from competitive more than half this match - poor serve, very unsharp, just couldn't handle Zverev. Got something going towards the end, but too little, too late.

We're definitely getting a repeat of last year's final between Novak and Zverev if Zverev keeps the level up the rest of the week. I don't even think Nadal was that bad, just too good from Zverev really.
You said that with a straight face. His forehand was non-existence.
