    Points won by each set: | 38-42, 31-20, 30-21 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    20 % Medvedev – 18 of 86
    12 % Sinner – 12 of 96

    “It was a very tough match, I would say mentally for both of us, I think,” said Medvedev, who now holds a 10-4 record in Rotterdam. “Jannik was on top of me, especially in the first part of the first set. I managed to come back into the set even though, in my opinion, I was playing worse than him. Maybe that gave me some time to find my rhythm.” [14] Sinner raced to a 4:1* (deuce) lead playing more aggressive tennis. At the beginning of the 2nd set he somehow lost the plot, and the Russian [11] deconstructed him in heavy baseline exchanges (61 points over 9 shots), totally neutralising the serve of the young Italian. The winner of the match had guaranteed comeback to the Top 10, quite important aspect before the upcoming big US events.

    Medvedev’s route to his 16th title:
    1 Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 4-6, 6-2, 6-2
    2 Botic van de Zandschulp 6-2, 6-2
    Q Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-2, 6-4
    S Grigor Dimitrov 6-1, 6-2
    W Jannik Sinner 5-7, 6-2, 6-2

    Serve & volley: Medvedev 0/1, Sinner 3/3
