Alexander Zverev is a chivalrous man, it seems!

The German tennis star continued his rapid rise to the top as he won his third Masters title following a 6-4 6-4 win over Austria’s Dominic Thiem in the Madrid Open final on Sunday.

During the post-match presentation, the 20-year-old thanked all the ball girls with these kind words: “We’ve got the most beautiful ball girls in the world.”

This is not the first time Zverev has showed off his courteous side, especially towards women.

During a Davis Cup tie earlier this year, he made a ball girl’s day by kissing her on the cheek after she tripped over. He also comforted another ball girl after she was hit by a serve during an exhibition match at the Boodles last year.

Meanwhile, Zverev, who is ranked third in the world (only behind the legendary duo of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal), is next scheduled to participate at this week’s Rome Masters.

Seeded second, he has a bye in the first round. He will later take on either American Frances Tiafoe or Italian Matteo Berrettini.
