Medvedev beats Thiem to win ATP Finals title
London: Daniil Medvedev came from a set down to beat Dominic Thiem 4-6, 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 and win the ATP Finals title in London on Sunday for the biggest tournament victory of his career. The Russian fourth seed was second best for large periods of the match at the O2 Arena but found a way back into the contest and eventually proved too strong for the world number three. Thiem weathered early pressure from Medvedev and secured the first break of the match in the fifth game, when the Russian served a double fault. Thiem, who beat Rafael Nadal in the group stages and came back from 4-0 down in a deciding tie-break against Novak Djokovic in the semi-final, sealed the set in fortunate fashion when his forehand clipped the net and looped over Medvedev's racket. Medvedev, 24, who came from one set down against Nadal in Saturday's last-four contest, made a solid start to the second set. - AFP
