 Medvedev won the final at home in St. Petersburg for five consecutive stops


Medvedev, ranked No. 4 in the world, has entered the final of the tournament including the US Open in five consecutive stops since the US Open Series. He competed at home with Croatian starlet Churich in St. Petersburg, who returned to the Tour Final for the first time since last years Shanghai Masters. Churich won 4 and lost 1 of the previous five matches between the two sides, and twice beat Medvedev on the indoor hard court.

Churich, 22, failed to pose any threat to Medvedev. The Croats tried to disrupt Medvedevs rhythm with cutting, but Medvedevs bottom line was extremely stable. In addition, Medvedev served equally well, and did not send out any break points, while Churich was broken twice by Medvedev in each set. Medvedev became the first host player to win in St. Petersburg in 15 years after Uzni in 2004. He won 24 of the past 27 games. The seasons total record so far was 54-17, and the wins continued to lead the ATP. St. Petersburg is Medvedevs third singles championship this year and his sixth singles championship in his career. He has already locked in the London Finals ahead of schedule at the US Open. Source: Netease Sports Author: Schlecks Editor-in-Charge: Zhao Ruiqi_NB12596
