August 13, 2017 -- Montreal, Canada
In the Finals of the Rogers Cup today, Roger faced the rambunctious, German ATP #NextGen 20 year old, Alexander Zverev. The 6'6 youngster started string, serving big and hitting through the Swiss veteran on the fast, hard court.
There looked to be some hope for Roger in the beginning of the second set to push it to three as he stepped up his play and began dictating against Zverev who also started to make more mistakes. However, Roger noticeably was not 100% and seemed to be lacking explosive movements on his shots. Zverev fought on and continued to take it to the Swiss star eventually winning 6-3, 6-4.
Up next for Roger is Cincinnati.
