Germany secures victory in the United Cup final against Poland, retaining two championship points.

Germany emerged victorious in the United Cup after a remarkable comeback against Poland in Sydney. Alexander Zverev displayed incredible resilience, saving two championship points in a tightly contested second-set tie-break against Hubert Hurkacz before eventually securing a 6-7 (3), 7-6 (6), 6-4 victory.
In the decisive doubles match, Zverev partnered with Laura Siegemund to defeat Hurkacz and Iga Swiatek 6-4, 5-7, 10-4. Prior to this, Swiatek, a four-times grand slam champion, had convincingly beaten Aneglique Kerber 6-3, 6-0.
To reach the final, Germany had to overcome Australia in a tense semi-final. Kerber fought off two match points against Ajla Tomljanovic, while Zverev and Siegemund mirrored this feat by saving match points against Matthew Ebden and Storm Hunter.
During the trophy presentation, Zverev expressed his gratitude and joy: “Being part of this team has been an absolute pleasure and so much fun for all of us. I am truly thankful to everyone for being a part of this journey. I couldn’t have asked for better teammates to share this trophy with. Congratulations to Team Poland for their outstanding performance. It was a matter of mere millimeters that determined the champions today.”
