Rolex Paris Masters—Paris, France
The Paris Masters
Daniil Medvedev captured his third-career Masters 1000 title on Sunday in Paris, France, defeating No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev 5-7, 6-4, 6-1. In a match that featured two of the biggest hitters in men’s tennis, Medvedev proved too tough for his German opponent after dropping the first set. Striking 14 aces and winning 79 percent of his first serve points, Medvedev also broke serve on four occasions. As a result of his victory, the Russian won his eighth career title and improved his head-to-head record against the German to two wins in seven matches.
Standing at 23-10 on the season, Medvedev will next see action at the ATP Tour Finale in London later this month. Zverev, alongside Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem will also be featured at the season-ending event.
Zverev Dissmisses Nadal
Zverev, who dismissed top seed Nadal in the semifinals, was aiming to win his third title of the year after triumphing in Cologne, Germany in back-to-back weeks.
Medvedev is currently ranked No. 4 in the world, with Zverev ranked No. 6.
