19 August 2019 14:49

MOSCOW. KAZINFORM Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev has defeated Belgian David Goffin in the final of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati (Ohio, US). The tournament offers around $6.7 million in prize money.

Twenty-three-year old Medvedev, seed No.9, emerged victorious 7-6 (7:3), 6-4 in one hour and 41 minutes. The players squared off for the third time, with the Russian now leading their head-to-head 2-1. In their last encounter, Medvedev lost to Goffin in 2019 Wimbledon’s third round in five sets, TASS reports.

The Saturday semifinal match saw Medvedev defeating world No. 1 Serbian Novak Djokovic 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.

Medvedev has won his 44th match in 2019, the most wins among all the tennis players. His personal best in matches won in a single season is 48, which he achieved last year. Medvedev is projected to rise to career-high No. 5 in the ATP rankings when it is updated later on Monday.
