Daniil Medvedev ended the resistance of Marin cilic (7-6 (7) and 6-2) and sealed Russia’s conquest of its third Davis Cup, the first since 2006, which it previously put on track Andrey rublev with his triumph against Borna goyo.
The sixth final gave a new award to Russian tennis. The number two in the world leaves Madrid as the great winner of the event. Without losing a set in the entire competition.
Cilic pushed him to the limit in the first set. None lost their serve and the clash was resolved in the ‘tie break’ where Medvedev was more certain to take advantage after taking advantage of his third opportunity.
The first break of the duel came in the second set. The Russian, who had already surpassed the Balkan on the two previous occasions they had played – the most recent last Wimbledon, in five sets – snatched the serve from his rival in the fourth game to reach 4-1, insurmountable for his rival that he gradually declined, resigned to his fate.
Medvedev sealed Russia’s third Davis Cup triumph after 2002 and 2006 in one hour and 27 minutes.
