Florian Mayer Defeats Less-Attractive Zverev to Capture Halle

German Florian Mayer defeated Alexander Zverev in the final of the Gerry Weber Open on Sunday, after having already dismissed a red-hot Dominic Thiem in the semis. World number 192 Mayer had not claimed an ATP singles tournament victory since back in 2011 before dismissing Zverev -- fresh off a win over Roger Federer -- 6-2, 5-7, 6-3, in a triumph for experience over youth. 

What does it mean when a 32-year-old who reached his career-high ranking five long years ago suddenly knocks out two of the game's most-promising rising stars to win only his second title? It's hard to say, But as Damian points out, goofy Alexander has a hunky 28-year-old brother named Mischa Zverev, who we can only hope will suddenly come into his own in his thirties too so we can see A LOT MORE of him ...

Watch him take it off HERE.
