ATP roundup: Alexander Zverev, Karen Khachanov win titles

Top-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany emerged victorious in the Chengdu Open final in Chengdu, China, despite losing the first set. Zverev defeated unseeded Russian Roman Safiullin with a score of 6-7 (2), 7-6 (5), 6-3. The match lasted for two hours and 56 minutes, during which Zverev showcased his skills with 10 aces. This win marked Zverev’s first hard-court title since the Nitto ATP Finals in November 2021.

Although Safiullin, 26, managed to collect 33 winners, he struggled with 15 unforced errors and four double faults, ultimately leading to his defeat against Zverev.

In another tournament, the Zhuhai Championships, top-seeded Karen Khachanov secured his fifth tour-level title and his first since 2018. Khachanov, 27, triumphed over eighth-seeded Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan with a score of 7-6 (2), 6-1 in Zhuhai, China. The match lasted for one hour and 43 minutes, during which Khachanov displayed his prowess with 34 winners and nine aces. This victory was particularly significant for Khachanov, as it marked his return to the singles tournament after recovering from a stress fracture in his back, which he sustained during the French Open in May.

Nishioka, 27, had hoped to secure his third tour-level title, but fell short in this tournament.
