Daniil Medvedev fights back to beat Alex De Minaur in Sydney final

Daniil Medvedev fights back to beat Alex De Minaur in Sydney final

De Minaur looked well on his way to his maiden ATP title when he breezed through the first set 6-1, before Medvedev stormed back and the Aussie appeared to feel the effects of a gruelling two weeks.

It would be the 18-year-old's first ATP tour final but to make it he has to get past world No.42 Paire.

The Russian came back from a set down to defeat the talented Alex De Minaur 1-6, 6-4, 7-5 in a tense affair on the hard courts of Sydney.

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.

De Minaur will now hope to write some more headlines at the Australian Open, where he will face 19th seed Tomas Berdych in the first round.

Roberto Bautista Agut caused an upset in the final of the ASB Classic in Auckland by beating Juan Martin del Potro.
