During this stretch, he not only won four titles but also returned to the number one spot in the ATP rankings. "(I) Wish him to stay healthy and obviously win a lot of titles".
Chants of "Let's Go Roger, Let's Go" reverberated around the arena as the second-set tiebreak began but Zverev shut out the noise to prevail. "I will hope. I mean, I will do everything I can to get better, to compete with them always".
The boos that greeted his semi-final victory over Federer in London may have stung that little bit extra given Zverev's obvious deference to the great Swiss.
But the former champion was unable to wrestle control from the powerful Zverev, who held serve well and then took advantage of a exhausted Djokovic service game, finishing off with a magnificent backhand victor down the line.
Six-time Grand Slam champion Boris Becker, who coached Djokovic to six major titles between 2014 and 2016, watched the match as a BBC Sport commentator. "Hopefully he (Zverev) can surpass me".
It might've taken the world's second-ranked global side to break down the perennial champions New Zealand but in the run-up to next year's Rugby World Cup in Japan the Irish - winning their first-ever match on home soil against the All Blacks - showed that they have the potential to go the distance in the world's pre-eminent rugby competition.
Going into Sunday's final against Zverev he had won 35 of his previous 37 matches and, despite an off-night, still looks capable of dominating men's tennis next year.
The pair met for only the third time earlier this week when Djokovic saved a break point in a tight first set on the way to a straight-sets victory.
Djokovic was uncharacteristically ragged against Zverev, but took nothing away from his opponent, even though he said he had not been feeling fully-charged for a few weeks.
"From 4-4 in the first set, my game fell apart".
Novak Djokovic was aiming for a record-equalling sixth title to move level with Roger Federer, but he was unable to replicate the breathtaking form that saw him win every service game in his first four matches in London. "(Karen) Khachanov winning the Masters in Paris was a big thing. The story line is the route to the finals by Serbia's Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev of Germany. I was very happy for him. He was a top junior player, progressed to the professional tour, and in the last two years has really stepped up his game, achieving his best-ever Grand Slam result so far this year, reaching the quarter-final of the French Open. A backhand victor on the run drifted past the helpless Djokovic and Zverev sunk to the ground in tears.
Notwithstanding the oddness of the World Tour Finals - ostensibly featuring the top eight players in the world, but in effect featuring the top eight players in the world by ranking who are fit to play, and coming at the end of a gruellingly long season - lifting this particular trophy is a real milestone for Zverev, for two big reasons. "You only have so many chances of winning it. And he's returning well, which definitely makes life hard, but that's why he's one of the best players of all time".
Federer described it as a "big call" but said Zverev was not to blame.
