After being vanquished in two ATP finals in a row, Daniil Medvedev finally got the monkey off his back by clinching the Cincinnati Masters on Sunday. He edged past David Goffin 7-6, (7/3), 6-4 to take home the title. Seeded ninth, Russian Medvedev lifted his first Masters 1000 trophy after narrowly missing as runners-up in Washington and Montreal respectively. He’d lost to Nick Kyrgios in Washington and Nadal in Montreal.
Madison Keys, on the other hand, won the WTA Cincinnati Masters by beating Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 7-6 (7/5) on Sunday. For the 2017 US Open finalist, it was her fifth career title and the second this season.
