Daniil Medvedev sends World Tour warning with Paris win over Zverev

  • Russian shows he will be a force at ATP World Tour Finals
  • Medvedev wins 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 in high-quality Paris Masters final

Daniil Medvedev did more than win his third Masters title when he beat Alexander Zverev 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 in Paris on Sunday evening. In a dark, cavernous hall at the Palais Omnisports stripped of fans and atmosphere, the Russian rediscovered the aura of 2019, when he announced his arrival in the US Open final against Rafael Nadal, and reminded his rivals he will be formidable at the ATP World Tour Finals in London next week.

In a little over two hours of intense, high-grade tennis, the world No5 made himself second favourite behind Novak Djokovic for the season-ending shindig at the O2 Arena, which starts on 15 November, the 12th and final edition of the event in the capital before it moves to Turin for five years.
