Russian Daniel Medvedev won the final men’s tennis tournament, after winning the final match against Austrian Dominic Thiem in two sets.

Iran Press/Europe: The fourth-ranked Medvedev became the first player to beat each of the men who were Nos. 1-3 in the season-ending championship — and only the fourth to do it at any tour event in the past 30 years.

The comeback against No. 3 Thiem, which lasted more than two-and-a-half hours, added to victories Medvedev produced against No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the round-robin portion of the tournament and No. 2 Rafael Nadal in Saturday's semi-finals on an indoor hard court without spectators, who were barred because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Medvedev went 5-0 in all, quite a turnaround from a year ago when he went 0-3 at the ATP Finals. The tournament now ends its dozen-years run in London, moving to Turin, Italy, next year.

The 24-year-old Russian closed 2020 by going 10-0 in November, including seven wins against members of the Top 10. He had zero victories over Top 10 opponents over the preceding 12 months.
