Tennis-Medvedev beats Thiem to win ATP Finals title

23 Nov 2020 / 05:01 H.

    LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Russian Daniil Medvedev claimed the biggest title of his career as he came back to beat Dominic Thiem 4-6 7-6(2) 6-4 in an absorbing climax to the ATP Finals in London on Sunday.

    Thiem looked on course to add the ATP's prestigious season-ender to his recent U.S. Open title, but 24-year-old Medvedev turned the tide in superb fashion.

    The final was a farewell to the tournament for London's O2 Arena which has hosted it for 12 years -- the first edition in 2009 also won by a Russian, Nikolay Davydenko. (Reporting by Martyn Herman Editing by Toby Davis)
