On Saturday, Daniil Medvedev won the Abierto de Tenis Mifel in Los Cabos by defeating Cameron Norrie 7-5, 6-0 to capture his first championship of the year.
The World No. 1 won his 14th tour-level prize at the Mexican ATP 250 tournament by not losing a set the entire week. It marks the 26-year-first old's victory since the US Open in 2017.
Medvedev had lost his previous five finals going all the way back to the Rolex Paris Masters of the previous year when the match began. The top seed, however, showed no signs of trepidation as he converted six of his ten break points and sprinted to a one-hour, 23-minute victory.
The turning point occurred at the conclusion of the first set. At 5-4, 40/15, Medvedev had two set points on his serve but gave up his service break. He tried to hit a ball on the first point of the following game when he scratched his hand on the court and needed physiotherapy since he had drawn blood. But Medvedev didn't freak out and resumed his work immediately away. The World No. 1 finished his first week of action since Mallorca in June by winning the match's final eight games.
