With a 6-4 and 6-3 in the final of the 2017 BMW Open in Munich, the German Alexander Zverev not only secured his third ATP title, but can also look forward to a BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Black Edition. The limited special model has a value of around 140,000 euros and is therefore even more valuable than the official prize money of 85,945 euros.
In the final, 20-year-old Zverev had a difficult start against Argentinian Guido Pella, but after 72 minutes the game was finally turned and the victory at the home game was secured. In the ATP rankings, Zverev will improve to the 17th place by winning the BMW Open.
Alexander Zverev: “It is very important for me to win my first title here in Germany. Especially after I failed last year in the semifinals. I feel very comfortable in Munich. The organizer MMP, the club MTTC and of course the sponsors around BMW and FWU always create a great atmosphere. ”
Peter van Binsbergen (Head of BMW Sales Germany): “Congratulations to Alexander Zverev, who secured the BMW Open by FWU 2017 with the high-class final against Guido Pella. I wish him a lot of driving pleasure with the BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Black Edition. This year, BMW was the title partner of the traditional tournament, once again proving that Spitzentennis has a great home in Munich. Many thanks to all athletes, the spectators and all the partners and sponsors for a fantastic tournament week at the Aumeister. “
