    Points won by each set: | 31-36, 39-30, 31-18 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:

    35 % Zverev – 36 of 102

    More than a year waited Medvedev [5] for his another title, and he won it against the same opponent like in his previous final (Shanghai 2019). Even the scoreline was the same not counting the opener. Zverev [6] was playing very confident tennis, but at 1-all in the 2nd set he needed 8 deuces to avoid being broken (saved four break points). Perhaps it cost him too much energy because he seemed deflated since he led 4:3 in that set. Medvedev won 9 out of the last 11 games; the only two he lost, were simply the consequence of Zverev’s very good serving. “I was playing really good in this tournament, especially today,” said Medvedev. “After the first set, I could [have] given up because Sascha was serving well and playing well. I just stayed there and at one moment I raised my level higher and higher and started to put pressure on him and it worked. It broke his level a little bit.” The same scoreline like in the final three years before. Medvedev snapped Zverev’s 12-match winning streak.

    Medvedev’s route to his 8th title:
    2 Kevin Anderson 6-6 ret.
    3 Alex de Minaur 5-7, 6-2, 6-2
    Q Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 6-1
    S Milos Raonic 6-4, 7-6(4)
    W Alexander Zverev 5-7, 6-4, 6-1

    Serve & volley: Medvedev 3/4, Zverev 3/3
    Average serve speed: Medvedev 199/162 kph, Zverev 209/157 kph
