Forehand winner to finish.

Game, set and match Roger Federer.
...
Zverev makes a mighty effort to challenge Federer and takes it to break point.

Federer follows that up with an ace to take it to deuce.
...
What a time for an ace. Federer serves for the match. And brings a speedy forehand out.
...
And after an arudously long game, Federer FINALLY breaks! He leads 5-2 in the third and is serving for the match.
...
It's the ninth deuce here. Number nine... number nine... John Lennon would be proud. 
...
Roger Federer's at full stretch here - and Mischa Zverev comes to the net. It's at deuce again.....
...
Forehand winner, winner, champions' dinner? After some serious back-and-forth, Federer creates another break opportunity.
...
How impressive/scary is Roger Federer's lob? We bet Mischa Zverev will attest to that....
...
Federer gets the first break of the third set! 
...
And that ball looked like it was going OUT .....but just when he thought it was out, he pulled it back in!
...
What a rally! You have to applaud Mischa Zverev right there for his attacking tennis today and he engages Federer for quite a while.
...
What a shot! He's not known as the greatest for nothing .
...
Federer's shots are pacey, something Zverev's lack. But he's more than making up for it with some big strong serves here and Federer's committing a few errors...
...
And SHOT! Federer runs to the net and ends it with a forehand volley. And a shot that's in by an absolute milimetre gets him the point - and he finishes that off to take the second set! 

Federer now leads two sets to love.
...
And there's an error from Zverev - his first one in the set. Federer sends a speedy ace across the court and that's done! 
...
Both players are at the net and on the attack! 
...
And an ACE down the line from Zverev gives him the lead, albeit on serve. Inspired tennis! 
...
That was a classic tennis rally and a half. Zverev is matching Federer on athleticism here and then some, and playing some vintage Federer-type shots in the process. Tennis fans win.
...
Couple of passing shots from both players and they're locked in a good rally. There's a forehand lob from Zverev that goes past Federer, but the Swiss is in no mood to let breaks march up on him. He breaks back.
...
BREAK POINT for Zverev!! This net approach is really helping Mischa Zverev, and it gives him the break of serve in the second.
...
As predicted, Mischa Zverev is running to the net. It's helping him score points here, but no breaks of serve just yet...
...
Mischa Zverev holds his first service game in the second. He'll want to redeem himself now and this is a good time to do it. Federer rushes the net and Zverev can't respond fast enough. He sends it wildly into the air - but manages a service hold. 


...
19 minutes. That's what it took for Federer to polish off set 1.
...
Roger Federer has two set points. Hits an ace. Advantage Federer. Zverev thwacks that one quickly to the net - and Federer spins backwards, hits that, and it's a backwards...backhanded winner?
