Alex De Minaur v Benoit Paire

Alex De Minaur v Benoit Paire”

The momentum was firmly with Medvedev, who charged into a 4-0 lead as De Minaur tightened up, but the teenager was not finished yet, saving a match point prior to getting back on serve at 5-5, as the pair continued to trade punches.

Aussie Alex De Minaur will look to cap off a dream run at the Sydney International by defeating rising star Daniil Medvedev en route to claiming his first ATP tour title.

However he failed to hold serve in the very next game, before Medvedev held his nerve to serve it out. He beat Frenchman Benoit Paire to reach the Sydney final after upsetting Milos Raonic to advance to the Brisbane International semi-finals last week before losing to American Ryan Harrison.

As it stands, world No.167 de Minaur is the lowest-ranked Sydney finalist since No.223 Andrei Cherkasov in 1989.

It was 21-year-old Medvedev's seventh win this week, giving him solid preparation for next week's Australian Open in Melbourne where he faces another Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis in the first round.

De Minaur, the home crowd favourite, was off to a bright start as he needed just 30 minutes to break Medvedev three times on his way to taking the set.

The gritty Spaniard raced through the first set and then proved just the stronger in the decider to win 6-1 4-6 7-5. To De Minaur's credit, the Australian fought back and saved a match point and levelled matters at 5-5.

But with the match beyond two hours, the 18-year-old Aussie began to show signs of fatigue and it was his errors that handed Medvedev another chance to serve out for the title at 6-5.
