(CNN)Daniil Medvedev claimed his second tournament victory in a row, as he won the ATP Finals with a three-set victory over Dominic Thiem on Sunday.
And having leveled the scores, Medvedev was full of energy and confidence in the third set, dominating with his own serve and managing to convert his third break point in a monster game that eventually proved to be the difference between the two as he won his debut ATP Finals title.
And after following serve, Thiem closed out the first set with a set-winning point that was accompanied by a large slice of luck, as his forehand clipped the top of the net and altered the course of the ball just enough to evade Medvedev's racket.
Medvedev, following a series of extremely strong serves and aggressiveness at the net, proved just too much for Thiem, comfortably easing to the second set victory with seven straight points.
