Russian tennis player Medvedev triumphs for the first time in the final tournament of the ATP season / Article /

Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev triumphed in the ATP Finals in London on Sunday. Medvedev ranked fourth in the final with 4-6, 7-6 (7: 2), 6-4, beating Dominik Tim, the planet’s third racket.

He became the first tennis player to win three of the world’s leading tennis players in the final tournament – in the subgroup Novak Djokovic, in the semi-finals Rafael Nadal and in the final Tim.

Ernest Gulbis’ former training partner Tim lost in the title match of the “ATP Finals” for the second year in a row, because last year he recognized the superiority of the Greek Stefan Cicip in the final three sets.

The Russian tennis player will leave the final tournament of the season undefeated, thus receiving a check for 1.56 million US dollars. The total prize pool – $ 5.7 million – and the winner’s prize are almost half as low as last year.
