Medvedev battles past Thiem to win ATP Finals title

London: Russia’s Daniil Medvedev won the ATP Finals, the biggest title of his career so far, after getting past US Open champion Dominic Thiem in a thrilling three-set summit clash.

The Russian fourth seed defeated Thiem 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-4 after two hours and 43 minutes to become the first player to beat each of the men who were numbered 1-3 in the season-ending championship — and only the fourth to do it at any tour event in the past 30 years.

“I always said before this tournament that it would be an amazing story if, here in London, where the tournament was for (12) years, that the first champion would be Russian and the last champion would be Russian, too,” Medvedev said after the match as per the ATP Tour website.

The 24-year-old is the first player from his country to win the year-end championships since Nikolay Davydenko in 2009.
