Cincinnati (dpa) - Russian tennis pro Daniil Medvedev has won a Masters Series tournament for the first time in his career. The 23-year-old won the final of Cincinnati against Belgian David Goffin 7: 6 (7: 3), 6: 4 for himself.

"Holding a trophy at last is great," said Medvedev, who had lost the Montreal final against Rafael Nadal a week ago and the final in Washington against Nick Kyrgios two weeks ago. Montreal and Cincinnati are the second highest category below the four Grand Slams.

The new world ranking fifth Fifth Medvedev had defeated the Serbian number one Novak Djokovic in the semifinals and previously defeated on the way to his overall fifth tournament victory and the Warsteiner Jan-Lennard Struff. "I had so much energy this week, especially after beating Novak, and Cincinnati will always have a special place in my heart," said Medvedev.

Germany's best tennis pro Alexander Zverev had failed in Cincinnati right at the start. The 22-year-old travels to New York with no major match practice, where the last Grand Slam tournament of the year is scheduled for 26 August. In the women's game, 24-year-old American Madison Keys won the title with a 7: 5, 7: 6 (7: 5) victory against Russia's ten-year-old Svetlana Kuznetsova.
