Medvedev staged a comeback in the Vienna final

Coming into the final in Vienna, Medvedev was the favorite to beat Shapovalov.

But Shapovalov came out determined not to go down without a fight. After Medvedev rallied from a set down to beat Shapovalov, he recognized the Canadian was a tall order to handle. «I’m really happy. This match was the best of the week because Denis was playing really unreal until probably 4-3 in the second set.

It lowered his level maybe two percent and I was able to use it. This is one of the best wins when you know your opponent is on top of you but you try to stay there and do what you can,” Medvedev said. Now Medvedev hopes to make a deep run at this week’s Paris Masters.

Medvedev, who is the fourth seed in the Paris main draw, has a first round bye in the tournament. In the second round in Paris, Medvedev plays either Sebastian Korda or Alex de Minaur.
