Alexander Zverev has more Masters 1000 than: Nishikori + Raonic + Thiem + Goffin + Dimitrov… First born on 1990 to win a title 1000. pic.twitter.com/DsQByh5DaO

Did not expect Djokovic to lose, let alone 0-2. To me, Thiem is better than Zverev and Djoker killed him. Logic went out the window.

Via @RobKoenigTennis, only two players in the history of the game won finals vs Djokovic without facing a BP.
