Roger Federer has completed his exhibition tour of North and South America with victory over Alexander Zverev in Ecuador.
With Switzerland failing to qualify for the Davis Cup, that enabled Federer to plan a lucrative tour, playing five exhibition matches in six days in Latin America, which is understood to earn him around £7.7million.
The tour started in Chile where Federer met with former rival Fernando Gonzalez and he beat Zverev 6-3 4-6 6-4.
Federer then meant to play Juan Martin del Potro in Buenos Aires, Argentina but the 2009 US Open champion pulled out with injury.
Zverev replaced Del Potro and beat Federer 7-6 7-6 in front of more than 12,000 people at the Parque Roca Arena.
In a special message, Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona told Federer: “You were, you are, and will always be the greatest. There is no other like you.
“I want you to know that if you have any kind of trouble in my country, you can call me and tell me what you need.”
Federer and Zverev then travelled to Colombia for a scheduled match in Bogota.

But the match was called off just hours before they were due to play because of a curfew installed by the government amid protests and unrest in the country.
“I am heartbroken for the people of Bogota. Due to the curfew tonight, unfortunately, we could not put on the match I have waited so long for,” Federer said.
“I promise everyone Sascha and I will be returning in the future to give our Colombian fans the chance to see us play.”
Federer and Zverev then flew to Mexico and set a new record of the biggest attendance in history.
Over 42,000 watched inside the Plaza de Toros as Federer beat Zverev 6-3 4-6 6-2.
And on Sunday, Federer delighted his supporter in Ecuador by beating Zverev again in the Ruminahui Coliseum.
“It has been a wonderful welcome. You guys could not have been nicer to us,” he told the crowd after the match.
“So many passionate tennis fans, I didn’t know. I was hoping to see so many passionate people about this sport but it is a beautiful surprise and I can’t thank you enough for that.”
